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

    That is just so neat…innovative and eco-friendly to the max! Although if I hired them, I’d probably want to play the whole time. 😛
