As the sun was setting yesterday, we noticed something moving in the trees. Something large…
Upon further investigation, it was one of the goats, eating some savory leaves high above. The goats have eaten almost all of the poison ivy, Autumn olive and Multiflora rose. It looks beautiful and completely manicured (up to 6″ high) down our driveway!
Generally, they do not like to be disturbed, so upon being spotted…
this guy beat a hasty retreat back into the underbrush, or, what’s left of it.
We decided to sneak out once more at dusk and he was at it again!
But Blue made sure that we were seen immediately!
Note all goats are created equally… This guy, named Mr. Miserable, is the mascot of our tenant farmer, Rob.
Handsome to look at, but he doesn’t eat a thing of value, he will ram you immediately if you come into his space, and he smells of the most concentrated goat smell you can imagine. Oh, and he has a ridiculous bleat. Oddly feminine for such a masculine guy. We’ll get video at some point!
