It is best to get the bucks away from her and out of the same area that your doe is is as soon as possible.  She needs time to heal and clean herself out. The buck trying to breed her is going to cause undue stress on her.  I'm so sorry to hear that she miscarried.

Treat that miscarriage just as if she kidded----in other words give her some time to recoup her strength.  And get her away from the bucks.  I assume that a miscarriage is like a kidding and she will come into a short heat in 5 days.  That could be disasterous if you still have her in with the bucks.

There are reasons for miscarriages...

Mineral is a big reason (copper, selenium, are the biggest two reasons)
Feed, improper feed management.

Being head butted in the stomach by another goat and so forth.

Yes, I'd be taking that buck out of there ASAP..he doesn't need to be with the girls if he's bred them all already.

But I'd be trying to find out why she miscarried.  I had one Doe to miscarry and found out that she just wasn't ready to be bred after being rescued from a farm that allowed their goats to become seriously infested with worms/bottle jaw and other illness's..and it took me 90 days to get this Doe acting like a goat instead of a walking dead animal.  I waited 9 months after she got well from her sickness's to breed her, and should have waited a full year.   

Is her history any thing like my Does history was?

I am not sure if I missed it but how far along was she?  He could of caused it.  I too would get him away.   Poor girl needs her own time.

  How is she doing now?
