Goats Need Guidance

You might have heard a thing or two about goats.  About how they eat just about everything.  A goat herder recently told me that you fence the goats in, and then anything you want saved, you fence that off too.  I guess the 6 foot tall wood fence wasn’t enough of a hint that the juniper landscaping belonging to the folks that payed 600 grand for their townhouses next door was off limits.

Yep.  Goats get hungry.  So it goes.

By the way, I know I haven’t been posting much.  I got this great new camera, which required me to also rebuild my computer to handle the massive files it spews, but other than that, I’ve got no real excuse.  It just hasn’t been happening.  Let’s pretend that it’s been my insistence that only the highest quality, primo shit makes it to the website.  Yeah.  That’s totally why.

Invading Horde of Brush-Eating Goats

I didn’t think I had a post for today and then something happened.  GOATS!  We’ve lived in the same apartment for upwards of 6 years with a brushy hillside behind it.  I think I can say with some confidence that it has never been covered in goats.  Until today, anyway.

Goat BABIES!?!!

Oh yeah – they brought goat BABIES!

Goats Gone Wild

Sometimes the goats get that crazy look thing going, but hey – it’s goats.  In the city.  Eating the plants.  Confusing the pedestrians.  It was all right.

Goats getting their eat on.

Even in 90 degree temperature, they do what they’re supposed to do, and they’re going to be back tomorrow, in double the numbers, to do it some more.  Check out the gallery below for more picture.
