    Yes they eat poison ivy. They will eat ANYTHINGyou don't want them to eat!!!!
    If you plant something for them to eat, they probably won't eat it tho....lol

    Goats eat everything they can reach if you want them not to. And if they don't eat it they stomp it. They know what plants you planted!

    Ours eat pioson ivy, rose bushes, wild blackberry brambles, grape vines ........... I pulled one away from a baby pine tree we planted before it could snack on it so I'm not sure if it would have eaten it. They also eat the bark off trees and the leaves of every tree we have.
