Goats

 


In a post last year I talked about the local herd of goats that wander around town eating overgrown vegetation. There seem to be 2 groups of them, sometimes they are together and other times they separate. Last week I managed to quickly get a shot of a group of them near the railway bridge in town. The baby ones are so cute.

Edited to add: Yes the train tracks are still used but not all the time, probably twice a day and the goats are not in one spot long enough to get hurt, they move around the town.

Linking up with Through my lensTuesday TreasuresMy corner of the world and Wordless Wednesday.

In Lahti, Finland we have sheeps in the fields doing that. It´s in a place where one of the first humans in Finland lived. Some 10 000 years ago. I visited the place few times. Blogged some photos at the time too.

The goats are looking so good. Innocent and cute.

There was a neighbor near my former home who rented a few goats to thin out the undergrowth on his property. I thought that was clever.

I hope you have good fences and well secured gates around your garden.

Great way to keep the grass mowed!

As long as they don't wander into someone's garden uninvited then it's a great idea.

That's very cool. There is a town here that has a herd of donkeys at a lake to eat vegetation.

Looks like they're living quite a dangerous life close to roads and railways!

We see goats sometimes on our travels that appear to be "wild" -- they are always fun to watch. we call them brush-eating goats because that's what they seem to be doing.
