Pond Hill Clean Up

Remember when I mentioned that a cat can be a big distraction to the goats?
Not sure if you can see that the majority of the herd is staring down Mia.
She slunk into the weeds from their stare, even though there is a fence between them.
Today was another clear, blue sky day, but when we went up to the hill, the surface of the water bucket had ice on it for the first time.
The leaves should be turning fast now.
 The goats worked as a herd the whole day, browsing as a team.
I imagine one more day and they will have thinned things pretty well for the tractor to finish the job for the winter clean up.
Everyone is growing a thicker coat of fur, and getting plenty of fresh, protein filled weeds and grasses before winter really takes hold.
 As you can see, the all-you-can-eat buffet is well stock for these goats.

It's a lunch date out! Or, perhaps a school field trip? They do look happy.
