Feeding Goats

We have three little goats.  We don't milk them or make meat out of them.  We just have them.  They don't require a lot of effort from us and maintain their own pasture as well as keeping the chicken pasture clean all summer long.  Last summer we discovered they eat pigweed.  Anyone who has experience with pigweed like we do hates pigweed as much as we do and will understand how satisfying it was last year to have a place to dump wheelbarrows full of pigweed and see it disappear.

Monster Milan doesn't yet have strong feelings for weeds but does get some satisfaction from feeding them to the goats.  The goats on the other hand didn't have a great appreciation for his desire to dole out grass one blade at a time.
