Even though the rain put a little bit of a damper on the human activities, it did wonders for bringing out the jungle in the back yard. I had been putting the goats out there on lines, but obviously not often enough:
|I thought I put the goats out here.
|Oh, there you are!
New Goat trying to eat her way out of the back yard.
When you stake your goats out on a lead, you have to be within sight or hearing distance. Because they will get tangled in something or end up having it wrapped around their foot. Or head. Or horns. Well, at least mine do. But maybe my goats are just exceptionally stupid. Or I am for letting them out there in the first place. It's just that all that lush, green grass is going to waste if they aren't eating it and it drives me nuts just to mow it down.
You know you're an owner of grazing critters when you drive down the road and see the all that "wasted" grass and sob. The tall grasses on the side of the roads, the lawns surrounding homes, the utility easements and even the state parks. All that beautiful, green, yummy grass that just gets mowed down. And every stinking time (much to Paul's annoyance) I say aloud, "Look at all that grass my goats could be eating!!"
Speaking of which, I need to swap out the goats. Pickles is screaming (imagine that) to be let out of the pen and I think Nettie has stuffed herself with enough clover for now.
