(Des Moines Register)   Have an excessive weed problem? Deploy some goats. And when you have an excessive goat problem, deploy goat-eating snakes. Then, deploy snake-eating gorillas. Then, when wintertime rolls around, the gorillas will simply freeze to death   (desmoinesregister.com ) divider line

Don't let your goat eat your weed. They can't handle the bu-u-u-u-uuz.

TheraTx: wait wait wait, gorillas don't eat goats do they?

I was in a mexican restaurant for a birthday party once and we went past closing time. They didn't kick us out though. The staff did start cooking a whole goat right in front of us, head and all, boiled it.

so i'm getting a kick out of this

/true story


I think that's how they make pinatas

I got a pair of pygmy goats to trim the lawn. A cute little boy goat and a cute little girl goat. I also learned the following lessons, the hard way...

- There is a big difference between a browsing animal (goats/deer) and a grazing animal (horses/sheep). Grazers eat grass, and browsers eat broadleaf weeds and your landscaping. If you want the grass trimmed, get a grazer. If you want the weeds managed, get a browser. The goats cleaned all of the dandelions and spurge out of the grass, leaving the grass unharmed. When I told my hardcore country and western neighbor that I got them to trim the lawn he said:  "Aww hell no!  If y'all want the grass trimmed, ya gotta get yourself some woolies."

- They breed like rabbits.

- A 35 pound pygmy goat can butt a wooden shed door hard enough to completely knock it off its hinges. They can also smash a hole through the 1/4" plywood side of the shed, a wooden fence, or a patio door. I didn't find out until it was about ten minutes past too late that you can have the horn buds removed when they are young.

- An unfixed male smells like a goat. Literally.  You can smell them 100 feet downwind. Also, when a female is in heat, a male will charge your ass like a bull and do their level best to take you out. Before I got the male fixed, I carried a three foot piece of PVC pipe to adjust the goat's attitude whenever he decided that it was high noon at the OK corral. Shepherds carry those staffs for a reason.

- You will be unpleasantly surprised by their ability to jump and climb. You will also be unpleasantly surprised by their ability to go through a doggy door and demolish your family room.

- Good luck finding a vet to work on them. They are not a cat or a dog.

- Do not get drunk, get down on your hands and knees, and get into a head butting contest with them. Fortunately, my brother did this and wound up at the ER with a scalp laceration, and not me.

- Yes, they are cute - in a petting zoo.

So they eat snakes and freeze during the winter?  That would explain why they haven't done an album in a few years.

I was going to semi retire as a goat farmer. Get some land, goats and milk 'em for cheese and milk. Then I found out what happens when mommy goat births a billy goat. I got a little gruff. Maybe the unwanted billies could be rented out to solve the weed problem.
