If you have a place to let them get to know everyone across the fence, that might save some bumps and bruises until they sort it out. I always like to put a mellow animal from the old herd with the newie til those two bond, then let them with everyone else- usually the old herd member will ease the new one in the group.

I like to put them also on the other side of the fence from the herd so they can kinda work things out, then I have taken a collar from one of my other goats and put it on the new goat so he smells somewhat like the others. They still have to work out their pecking order but this seems to make it a little calmer. You might try taking a collar from a more dominate goat and put it on the new guy?
