    As a kid growing up we had goats among about every other type of pet and livestock (typical old McDonald farm) and I never saw any of the goats eat grass. Maybe it depends what you feed them, ours got alfalfa and grain every day and would not touch grass, cardboard, however was considered a delicacy by the goats.

    Goats typically eat vines and brush or low limbs on trees. If you really want to be effective get sheep. They will keep the grass mowed.

    There is an ad here that offers to rent goats to people, he calls them "organic mowers" it is from Craigs list as well. It is pretty funny, I will try to post it later.
