From the ones I've seen they are usually up and down a lot and pacing although not as much as a mare. It's been so long I can't really remember a whole lot more than that. I believe the term for a goat giving birth is "kidding" but not 100% sure.

Thanks Demo, but do they lay down like a mare to or stand up? Maybe someone knows... Yeah kidding is they do, but HP seems to be kidding us all the time so I have come to the conclusion, everyone foals

Goats most often lay down when they kid, but some have been known to kid standing up or squatting. it is a good idea to keep a close eye on them, goats are famous for having multiple births and sometimes the kids get tangled up and try to come out all at one time. I had four does in my herd that would always have triplets. a lot of times if you have multiple births one will come out normal and the rest will come out back legs first or breech,
