Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

what is right age for a buck to start breeding. i have a lamancha x nubian doe 140-150lbs and 15 months old.
i was told i only needed to wait 4 months for a healthy,potent buck. should i wait longer ?
i also read bucks are ready at 7 months . what is right ?
she's in heat so i don't know if i should wait for my buck to be ready ?
i have a buck available, but , i want to make sure she has enough rest time between preg's
any comments or suggestions i would deeply appreciate it.
pic 1 is my lamancha cross
pic 2 is my buck
pic 3 is another cross doe (mini nubi) i'll be breeding, but, she won't be ready yet (she was born mid dec 2014 ) she's about 5 months old (fattie)

Hi! I'm not seeing any pictures. Also, in order to get more responses, you really should post questions in the "Forum." Just click on the "Forum" button at the top of the page, then click "+Add" to create a new forum post. You can cut and past most of what you wrote here. However, I'm not clear on whether or not this doe has kidded before. You say you want to make sure she has enough rest time between pregnancies, but you didn't say anything about her kidding before. Can you tell us a little about her history?

As far as when your buck is ready, you don't know until you try. Some can breed at 3-4 months; some can't figure it out until 8 months. You just have to try and see what happens. They're all different.
