Goats and Sheep Mow Through Town

Yesterday we went for a hike at La Cresta Ridge. It was a lovely rainy day. The hills all around us were green. We were happy to find the goats and sheep back this year. Today, the goats were huddled together under cover trying to stay dry. They were a wonderful assortment.
Last year was the first time they were employed to do the mowing. For years the land had been disced and torn up. Now, the goats and sheep munch the grass, Mustard, Wild Radish, and Fennel down to the ground. And, while they are munching away they are fertilizing the the fields. I just love this kind of win-win situation!
