Some of the weedy things here can kill you, and not from parasites.
I just spent an hour with the goats - they hadn't really seen me the last 2 weeks. Pip, who is a lover, after she browsed the woods for about 15 minutes came over to me, pushed my legs open and put her head and neck around mine. It was really sweet.
Had she not just eaten poison ivy.
She then wanted me to get the brush, so I did and spent about 20 minutes while she stood dead still and just brushed her. She's never been that good, before. While she enjoys being brushed, it's kind of a game of "chase" sometimes where she likes to wander around while I brush her. Even BF came out and mentioned how much she was enjoying it and how good she was being.
Caramel? Yeah, that's the "don't touch me" goat. She spent the whole hour trying to eat the few ornamental plants I actually have.
Hope your not too allergic. I'd like to get a goat or two or three. Lots of brush for them to eat. Just have to figure out the fencing as the neighbors frown on goats eating their garden. Will have to get rid of fox tails first though. And then there's the predators.
