Goat Herding

Some days it is a real chore to get the goats to follow to an exterior browsing area. Any factor can be a distraction. Rain is the worst. A cat - second! At least within the high tensile area they can't get outside the alley.
When we just go out the barn door, they are totally free and can go wherever they want. If they see a rather succulent blueberry bush or weed, off they go. And usually, someone follows.
This morning I got lucky. It just shows you how good these animals are. It also shows you that they know there is a good chance of good browse where I am fencing them.
They are well fed goats!
If you remember the last time they were here, this faucet was pretty invisible. We can see the ground again, and I can finish mowing safely now. Thanks Goats!

Our daughter, the one who uses the lawn mower here, has often (kiddingly - all puns intended) mentioned buying me a goat or two as a present. Do you think she has an ulterior motive? ;)

I think she's got the right idea. I think your daughter also wants to fertilize your lawn and keep things fun! The dogs need some playmates too.
