Because I published a single-day record number of posts yesterday (11), I decided to do something different today and write about goats.
I was walking through a forest near my childhood home in Montecito over the weekend and came across dozens of goats chowing down on everything in sight. It turns out they were all “working” for a company named Brush Goats 4 Hire, an eco-friendly solution for brush thinning.
I observed one dexterous goat climb all the way to the top of a large oak tree to find fresh green leaves. I had no idea goats could climb trees.
The goats live within a fenced area and are protected by a predator-control dog. I am told that this hungry herd is in high demand all over Santa Barbara. For more information call 705-2554 or visit brushgoats4hire.com.
