As long as she is in good condition and has no issues from the miscarriage it is safe to breed her when she is old/big enough. Yes, it is possible to get color even when the doe and buck are both white. It just depends on whether there are colored goats in the woodpile somewhere.

White is dominant, so chances are not the greatest at getting loud colors. Bucks get along just fine together. They become buds. Especially without females being kept with them.

I wouldn't allow breeding on the first heat she shows. This will clean her uterus out for you. Start breeding on the second heat. Does she have any funky discharge still?

Ok. I'd let her pass on at least her first heat. You could do a single dose of lutalyse or cystorelin or estrumate to aid in this.
