Are the knee's swollen? May want to test for CAE

If there is hoof rot, it needs treatment. If you have iodine I would use that on the goats hooves, every day.

Trim as low as you can to get rid of the rot part, without bleeding. Trim every 2 weeks, just a little until you get all the yuck out of there.

Iodine doesn't hurt them so start that, but I wonder...do the feet stink? Poke the hoof everywhere as well. Any sensitive spots? As a general rule, for the first week after a trim you should be checking for stones, bruising, cracked hoof wall, etc. Trims change their walking stance and can be uncomfortable for them if it was badly needed.

Grab a couple pics. That can help us as well.

I would say rot then. Take some salt water and scrub the hoof clean. Take an antibiotic and squirt on the area where it stinks.

Ideally what I do is squirt 2cc LA200 or excenel on the hoof, put a wad of cotton on that area, and vet wrap for 8 hours. Unwrap and leave open the rest of the day. Repeat for one week.

It can be anywhere that dirt/bacteria may multiply. Depends on the hoof of the animal.
