I imagine the legs are tied?, and what if it bites?

Wouldn't want to be the rider unless the goat was tranquilized!

We did take a young calf to the vet hogtied in the back of a minivan.  Goat kids could easily be transported in a car.  Just be sure to have an old car or a good tarp as they will not fail to demonstrate their displeasure by defecating profusely!

Then there is always tying a halter and walking it.  Sheep will follow a familiar person somewhat, but goats and cows are poor followers over distance.

I guess the question is how far and how big of an animal?
