    On some days the "Heard" seem to laden one area of my lawn with their droppings around where we walk alot. I use to get the hose and blast them till they disintegrate. Then I had a thought and went with it, I bought a small 26 inch wide push lawn sweeper to do a quick pickup of the area. It actually worked pretty well once I adjusted the height to the optimum level. It’s not fool proof but it picked up 90 % of them and the ones it did not pick up, it seemed to break them into non visible pieces. [​IMG]

    great idea, but on the water side does that not make mud?

    then what do you do with the "fruits" of your labor?

    how big of a herd/flock?

    We are low impact, 5. ( I don’t know how 5 can poop so much, you would think I had 20) I use it on lawn areas where I walk alot. Other areas I can hose but by wetting the area down all the time the lawn was thinning out from walking on the wet and mushy soil. I hit a path to the basement slider around to the driveway and sometimes the driveway to. What I collect I dump in the woods on my property.
