Animal Farm

On our walks with Lucy the last few nights, we've seen something very different than normal. Goats! Either the city or county has hired these goats to eat the dried grass next to the path. The grass is a fire hazard and the goats love it. They get put into a pen that is about 30 feet across and 100 feet long, and they mow it down in less than a day. Then a farmer sets up a new pen right next to the one they finish and they get herded into the new pen by 2 dogs. Lucy LOVES the goats (and working dogs) which is a nice change from the feelings she has toward the cows in the same pasture.
