    Ok, I want to breed Annie, my Mini LaMancha doe this October or November. She is a good weight and gets fed free choice grass/Alfalfa mix hay, has free choice Sweetlix minerals and gets Selenium/Vit E gel per the instructions on the tube on the first of every month. She was a bit copper deficient (redish coat and slight fish tail) but that is improving. Is there anything else I should be doing so that she is in the best shape possible before being bred? BTW - she is 1 year and 4 months old now.

    Have a fecal run to see if a worming is needed, this way if you would need to use a wormer not safe for preggy does you can do so before she's bred.
