No, I wouldn't say that. Each goat grows at it's own pace...some grow slow...some grow average...some grow fast. Genetics and feed play a big part. They can be growing up to four years old. If they aren't stunted by worms, coccidiosis, or low quality/lack of food then you've probably just got some slow growing goats on your hands...which is fine. Some are just like that. I've found that the ones that grow slow really blossum in there 2nd and 3rd year. By 3 years old, they should be nearly if not already at full height...they may fill out a bit more though for another year or so.

As for breeding...wait. They should be bigger before they're bred to be safe. Let their bodies mature a bit more.
