Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

We are picking up our goats next week and to help facilitate moving them around our property we are looking at using leads.  So a bit of a odd question maybe but if buying a dog collar (with of course the break away clip) to use on a Nigerian dwarf goat, what size do you think would fit?  I guess the better question is what is the average neck size of  a doe and a buck?  (BTW at this point the goats will be about 6 months old when we pick them up).

Thank you for any help you can offer on this question.

It's been so long since I bought these, I don't remember what size it was. I usually buy the plastic break-away collars from Caprine Supply. They now sell a long chain with end links for attaching, and you can cut the collars whatever size you want. Hoof trimmers cut the plastic links just fine. And I do find quite a few of them hanging on tree branches, fences, etc.
