    Ok, I saw this today on craigslist. Yes, these people seem serious! They want to borrow goats to "mow" their hill. :laugh::drinkup: Mow power to 'em I guess! Maybe I should start a goat rental business....

    I have a friend who has a large property with many trees, and he has 3 goats that roam the property and eat around all the trees and fences and etc. never has to weedwhack anything.

    well I'll tell you this much..I three goats and I still have to bushhog the lot I keep them in. On the other hand, if you REALLY wanna keep a patch of grass eat down, get a horse. My neighbor runs his two horses on my back lot and son of a gun those horses will grub a patch a grass into the DIRT!!!

    Also, depending on what part of the country you are in, renting a goat can mean several different things....:dizzy:

    Hey man, I just got back from Jamaica, and I seen them everywhere eating up the grass. That's really not that bad of an idea if you have a large unmaintainable area to keep at a reasonable height.
