|Look at how neatly manicured the hillside is now!|
I think it was an awesome idea to employ these four-legged creatures to help out in reducing fire damage in our local area. After finding some news stories about the goats--"Goats, nature's barbers, on a spring tour" from the San Diego Union-Tribune and "Getting their goats: homeowner's hire four-footed brush clearing crew" from East County Magazine--I am pretty proud to learn that the effort was one initiated by local homeowners. I hope that the trend catches on and that I will get a chance to see the goats in some of the many other overgrown areas around town. It brought a smile to my face to see these animals at work, and hopefully it means we'll all be just a little bit safer, too.
