I appreciate all the quick replies. How long will it take to mow with a small compact tractor vs. a ZTR? Our family had a small garden, horses plus various other critters and we never had a tractor. Granted, one would have been nice. For the few major projects my dad did, he either borrowed one or rented one. I'm more worried about the time involved in mowing. We have found 4 goats that need adopting (free - as long as we don't eat them
. Can we tether them until we get a fence up?
