Unless you are trying to protect food plots or a garden, I wouldn't focus on restricting the deer right now.
Build your second fence now, meaning, do not put up temporary "gudnuff" fencing. Your goats will learn how to get thru it quickly and they will not forget. I use t posts every 6', 6' tall, with a wooden post every 4th post. I run a hot wire for everything; my preference is poly wire, 12" off the ground and then 30" and 48".
You can also run your top wire (non electrified) thru 1 1/2" pvc pipe (or larger). It will spin when contacted and prevent dogs, predators, and some goats from going over the top.
Some goats have more of an "Escape from Alcatraz" mentality than others, so breed can matter.
