But f he s not registered you don't want to breed your show doe to him. Also, he may not be a buck any longer if the castration process took. Call Dixie's breeder and ask about getting her bred. Some breeders will take back does they bred and sold and board them while they make sure they get bred. They will charge you a stud fee ad a boarding fee. They will have to keep her for at least a month to make sure she has cycled twice and was bred. Some breeders may offer to rent you a buck to breed her at your place.

Call her breeder and discuss your options with her. If this is a show doe, you need to breed her to a registered buck or you are wasting your money. No matter how good the lines are on an unregistered buck, his offspring cannot be registered and that means that any of Dixie's kids are barred from registration and from showing. Since you plan to show, do not even consider that sort of breeding.

I'm confused because in another thread about Dixie you mentioned the breeder said you can bring her back for a free breeding. If they live down the road why don't you take her there and get her bred so she kids after January 1st to a registered Buck. I'm also confused about the new wether kids being castrated but not showing symptoms of castration. I would call that breeder back and explain your concerns. You say your too busy but have time to start threads. A phone call would take less time. I hope you get all your concerns figured out soon..👍

Chickens really is absolutely right. Run them up the road and have her look at them, If they are not correctly castrated you absolutely don't want them getting to your registered show doe! At a year old she is certainly old enough to carry a pregnancy to term, but like I said before IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON SHOWING DIXIE, YOU WANT HER BRED TO A QUALITY REGISTERED BUCK.

Sometimes we have to make time to take care of business. This is important business for the start of your show goat herd.

How could she be pregnant all ready? Aren't the kids only 12 weeks? Have they been Bucky and exposing their penis at this age? You need a Buck for her to be pregnant. I thought it would be months before udder development even if she is bred.

Wethers/Does mount each other. Not always a breeding reason but dominate behaviour. Take a picture of her udder.
