I third getting a vet out! If one won't come to you then goats can be put in the back seat and taken to a vet, like a dog.
Don't try to sling the goat up by the belly!
There are many reasons why a goat moves around or stands on the front knees. Some are due to disease, some injury, some hoof problems, and some goats who have been down for a while (injured, sick, stuck somewhere, or stressed) can start having problems with their rumens (one of the stomach chambers, like a cow.)
If a goat or any ruminant (multi chambered stomach animal) has been stressed, it affects their digestive system greatly.
When the digestive system is affected, everything is affected and it is complicated to try and fix!
The digestion process itself makes special nutrients for the body, beyond just extracting the nutrients from the food. When something causes a shift or halt in that process it robs the body of those special nutrients which cannot be easily replaced. This can affect the body in many many ways.
In other words... the goat needs a vet for more than just the leg or injuries.
Hopefully your goat is still trying to recover, but I fear he/she needs a vet badly.
