    We were given a couple of lovely matching planters that we have put at the end of our driveway. Our goat roams our property most of the time and I am wondering if there is any kind of plant I can put in these planters that he won't eat. The only thing we've planted in our yard that he doesn't eat are some spruce trees, everything else we have to fence off and I didn't want to do that with these. I know that if I kept him locked up I wouldn't have this problem, but he is good at eating weeds and dead leaves from the yard and deck. [​IMG]

    My big hog of a wether took a bite of my Aloe once or twice, & spit it out. Now he leaves it alone. [​IMG]
    No one else touches it, except me when I have a burn or need to make toner. [​IMG]
