Tethered goat by mittens

Tethered goat

Saw this poor goat on a recent ride standing all by himself and hoped he wasn't lost. When I brought the picture up in the computer, I noticed he was tethered so someone surely knew he was there.
I wonder why he was tethered?
Maybe he had run off and someone had been looking for him and has gone home to get the ute and needed to be sure he would be there when they got back!

Awww. He’s a handsome fellow.

Aaw ! I do not like to see this handsome lad tethered - I suppose to limit him to where he can graze ! I hope he also had a shelter within his reach !

@beryl Thank you Beryl. There was no shelter there which concerns me but it was a nice. day. I hope the people who own him know what they are doing.

His line is quite long and maybe if he walked the other way there might be shade.

I guess the only way to find out is to go back and see if he's still there. My guess is that his owners wanted him to nibble on that patch that day. He probably gets moved around for that purpose. Either that or he broke free from where he was supposed to be and got stuck there. Good catch.
