I didn’t think about the hot months being hard on a pregnant goat, is very stressful on them when it’s hot? She would be prego from June to oct so she would be pregnant the hottest month of the year, is it hard on them if they’re pregnant should I wait? I don’t want to risk her losing the kids if it gets too hot or will she be fine?
It would be harder on her yes. Its the same reason humans avoid being pregnant during the summer if they can. Its a lot of extra stress on them

Its up to you. Some people do it no problem. July-December would have had her heaviest pregnant months in cooler weather so thats the big difference.
To me I just like to minimize any risk I can which is why I aim for the months where they will be more comfortable.
