Useful Goats

Goatcam is up! But, sometimes you won’t be able to see the boys on the camera. They might be over at the fence, visiting with the chickens and Candy. Or I might have taken them on a walk. They’re getting used to their leashes. They’re getting more comfortable being away from the barn. And, Pip and Caper are already being useful! This is my butterfly garden along the fence that separates the lawn from the meadow.


Although flowering meadows look wild and easy to maintain, they are actually quite difficult to keep in bloom. Briars and vines, invasive buckthorn and dandelions move in. But, what are weeds to me are gourmet treats to the goats. They’d rather eat thorny branches than clover. Here is Pip, earning his keep. Good boy!
