There are twenty goats to find in total, and to be honest, I'm still missing a few, so I'll update this guide as I discover more. Sadly you don't seem to get any reward despite an achievement and a sense of pride. I've listed the goats in the order in which I found them, so this should make them easier for you to find. Here are all the Resident Evil Village Goats of Warding I've found so far.

This is the trickiest goat to shoot as you're in a moving elevator at the time. As you ascend, watch the left side of the elevator shaft and begin shooting as soon as soon as the lift starts moving.
