Around 4 months or so. Sometimes earlier, but not usually.

I thought they were fine until 4 months old with the bucklings still out with them.
However, we were surprised once here on TGS years ago hearing about a 3 month old getting preggo.
Don't know where that post is now.
I have kept the bucklings on moms up to 4 months once, but as a good rule, 3 months top or 2.5 months youngest.
This is for the boers.

As long as they are eating well and drinking water, try taking them away at night and only let nurse a few times a day. If they are not drinking and eating well, it's not good to suddenly yank them away from mom!
