If the doe is a half mix then yes it will take apporx 5 generation to get to 1/16th (if I'm doing my math correctly). I depends on the registration proceedure. Some Associations allow recorded grades with less % of 'pure' blood.

Depending on what your goals are I can tell you from experience that 'breeding-up' is a long slow process. If you want quality show animals it is less expensive to buy the best doe you can afford from a reputable breeder and use her to grow your herd. Keep the others as pets but don't rely on them for breeding.
