Sadly that doesn't look good. And the falling over isn't good either. Anything else you can telll us? Temp, is she vaccinated, wormed? Was she raised by mom or bottle. Did she get in to anything? If possible I would call vet asap

I'm not an expert but you need to get vitals for us...temp, heart rate, breathing.

Is the goat rigid? Was it "stargazing" I'm suspecting things like goat polio...tetanus ... but not enough information yet... like could the goat have gotten some bad feed or poisonous plants. Etc...

Things that wont hurt... give thiamine if you have it, fortified b complex shot if not. You can give tetanus antitoxin and C/D/ antitoxin (not the same as CD/T vaccine). These won't hurt and will help some pretty serious ills.

This can also occur with severe head trauma. Getting stuck in a fence, kicked by a large animal, falling off a large distance and landing improperly, etc.

Found a thermometer temp is 106
Wow...get that temp down. You can do that by taking a towel and putting it in the freezer for half hour. Wrap around her. Try external cooling. Internal is harsh. Or ringer's solution under the skin. For now I would do vitamin b complex, and penicillin doesn't hurt anything. Start her on that in case of an infection. Gotta do something to get that temp down. You may have to drench her to get her to drink.
