We haven't been able to get our goat does to be bred for 3-4 years. Will this present a problem in getting them to settle?
I've had elderly parents that I couldn't leave, but I can take the does to the buck next year. I want to know, am I wasting my time?
Have I lost the ability to have pregnant goats and milk?

How old are the goats? What were their previous pregnancies and births like?
 
We don't have time to be charming! Quick, read this tiny ad:
