You obviously do not own a goat!
Yes, you DO need to feed and care for a goat. They are not a breathing lawnmower that you throw out somewhere and ignore. They need to bed fed in the Winter or when grazing gets slim, they need de-wormer, vaccinations and their hooves trimmed. They also need appropriate shelter for when the weather is icky.
Goats are escape artists, 2 strands of hot wire will keep them in for oh 5 minutes unless something comes along that interests them sooner. I have no climb fencing that is 5ft high and staked down. All the gates are also covered in no-climb and staked as well. Only way I've managed to keep the lil buggers contained and they still escape on a weekly basis.
