It's a goatweight. You screw it onto a goat to keep it from getting blown away in a high wind.

goat weight
I've been looking though weights for livestock, but I hadn't thought of goats. I figured renee being in FLA it might be used on cattle, but something that small couldn't weigh anything down on a cow..... could it?

They attach to the ends of cattle horns to get them to grow downwards.

You may be onto something. I could only find contraptions to make them grow upward, and it was said that nothing connects to this object, but that's a pretty reasonable guess. I was thinking they capped the horns, but that doesn't fit in with it is a weight..... Tough object.

It was said that the object isn't connected to another "part" (such as a handle), but that it connects to something to do what it does.
