    It depends. If you have too many in a small area then yes, it will soon be a dirt lot. If they have plenty of room or if you rotate pasture then no, they will not kill the grass.

    They actually prefer to browse on tree's, bushes, weeds etc. if they are available.

    I have 3 goats in my backyard. Ive been told its a big backyard but its not HUGE..
    They have yet to kill the grass.

    Goats are browsers, not grazers

    No. Now ask me about trees, juniper bushes, weeds, clothing, fencing, etc.
