Goats are interesting animals. Has anyone here ever owned or been around a goat? I've never had one or been near one (except maybe at a zoo), but I see them all the time in other peoples yards.

Here's a story where goats are helping the environment and doing it cheaper than other ways too.

I may have seen one at a petting zoo when I was a kid. I don't recall. I only remember the deer the place had, but there might have been a goat, too.

Using goats for work like this is likely better than using a machine. It saves fossil fuels, gives less pollution, and so on. It sounds a lot slower, though.

Hold on, S_S, did you say that you see goats in people's yards? That must mean that they're pets--I didn't know that that was allowed. It's not where I'm from (Northern Illinois). I'd love to have one though--They're cute~

Using goats for clearing brush sounds very eco-friendly; but I'm not too sure about using animals to do people's dirty work. I wouldn't want the poor goats to eat something that might make them sick or something, you know?
