Goats Do My Landscaping




I'm not saying that goats are GOOD landscapers; but they do work cheap. Why, some people are even villifying goats as "undocumented workers" taking American jobs! Check out the link if you don't believe me - Stephen Colbert does a great expose.

Those goats are doing the work of 10 landscapers! But are they contributing to the tax system? Nope? But I'll bet they contribute to the eco system!

We currently have many acres of grass that could do with a serious amount of 'landscaping' and I really am wondering if goats could fit the bill nicely. What kind are yours?

And yes they are super cute, worth visiting just for the pics!

thank you! These are Nubians, and I think they are the best looking of all goats. Goats really prefer bushes and trees to grass (they are browsers rather than grazers) but they will certainly go to town on grass. I think Sheep might be better for grass control over all, but sheep aren't nearly as nice as goats, IMHO.
