    I was wondering, Do goats keep the grass short or do they pull it all out and it doesn't grow back? Also, I would like to see some pics of some pygmy or dwarf goats.

    If you want something to trim the grass, get a sheep. Goats will graze some, but they are primarily browsers. They prefer brush to grass. If any animal is pulling the grass out so it won't grow back, it means there is not enough grass.
