I second the post training. I have dog collars and I will tie them up at morning grain time. They get their bucket and I tie them to the fence. Then I do things, never out of sight obviously, while they eat grain and get used to collar.
Then mine usually learn to lead just by a hand on there neck and that starts early as possible like usually around weaning 3 months. When I want to move the goat then I encircle the goats neck with my hands and pull them forward. They learn that when my hand goes to that spot on their neck and I pull forward they are to move. So when they are bigger they walk nicely with one hand on the neck pressed lightly against my thigh. If that explanation made sense. Grown goats will learn it too if I led them to something yummy consistently.
