    I read online that sheep can eat tansy ragwort with no ill effects but it causes liver damage to other animals. I couldnt find info on why it doesnt afftect sheep and so i am wondering, since theyre similar animals, if goats can safely eat tansy? Probably sounds like a dumb question but i dont know much about sheep and goats and we want to find a natural way to deal with our weed problem.
    Thanks.
