Goat Smorgasbord




The goats were unleashed on the barnyard today. It is looking pretty shabby with  the weeds taking over.  A goat smorgasbord and they seem to love every minute of it!

The only downside of letting them be our weed eaters is that we don't get any milk for a few days. The last time I milked them after turning them loose on so many weeds, the milk was less than desirable. It was downright yuck!

I don't mind not getting any milk for a few days if it means the barnyard is getting cleaned up and I am not the one that has to do it.  The goats enjoy the job a lot more than I do, and who am I to deprive them of all that fun?

  2. I LOVE it! Putting animals to work on the farm doing something they love is a brilliant idea.

    1. My girls would be so upset if we didn't have a few goats. They love them.

  4. A winner for all!

    That same theory is why I like my chickens. If I have scraps or fruit/veggies gone bad, I know the hens will love it. I don't like wasting food, but it happens. I am always amazed at how clean they will pick a watermelon rind.

    1. I loved chickens for that reason too. The girls loved when we had corn on the cob, the chickens would go crazy over the cobs :)

    1. Some weeds don't really make a difference but a lot of weeds, it does. We found that out one year!
