I have more to add to my endless questions We have been looking for a new buck to add to our herd. We had initially been looking for a yearling but, but we stumbled upon a 3yro buck. My concern though is his large size. I am guessing from his photos, he is at least 250 pounds if not closer to 300. We have two 2 1/2 yro does that are approx 150-170 pounds, which may already be bred. We have 3 does that are a little over 8 months old, and about 90-120 pounds. They will not be bred until they are 12 months, so I'd expect them to be at least 110- 130 pounds. Would he be too large to breed to these does? Only one of the 2 1/2 year olds has kidded before. With the horses in MOST cases the dam's size determines the size of the growing fetus and in utero development. There was a study done with draft stallions being bred to shetland mare. The foals we born the size a purebred shetland would have been. Is this the case with goats as well? Or will the fetus grow too large for the doe and cause dystocia?
