My little pygmy doe passed away and I am left with one lonely 1.5 year-old Lamancha doe. We have found a 2 month old pygmy wether to be her new friend.

Any ideas on how to introduce these two? The Lamancha has always been the 'Queen Goat' but she is very lonely.

You might not have too much of a problem since your doe is used to a Pygmy as a buddy but as with any new goat certainly there will be some scuffles.
Let them duke it out. She will always be The Queen.

Given the ages of the two, you may not have any issues. I would watch them and make sure the little one is getting enough to eat, though. A 2 month old cannot compete with a 1 1/2 year old for food.
