They may have an almanac at the feedstore. Every feedstore around me has them available for free.
They are not quackery or voodoo as some ignorant of the fact folks would lead you to believe.
The almanac link I put in for you has an "Astrological Best Days Timetable" link over on their right border, it has a list by date of the best days to do whatever farm activity going by moon signs.
The moon being in the *foot* sign is best for weaning but anywhere from the knee down is alright.
I don't stick the kids nose in water. It won't hurt anything if you do but I get quicker results to just hold their head near water and use my hand as a dipper for them.
Goats like room temp water better than cool or cold water and that goes double for kids. Just be patient with the wee ones.
