West Seattle spring scene: 1st goat sighting of the season!

Ah, springtime. The time to clean up the yard, with the mower … the weed-whacker … the hand tools … and/or … the goats! Robin in Fauntlee Hills sent word that he was bringing in the munching machines, through a goatkeeper with Amazin’ Grazers, which is affiliated with Rent-a-Ruminant, but offers smaller-scale goat services. They arrived at midday and got down to work on Robin’s overgrowth. We’re sorry to say you can’t really see them from the street – and given the electric fencing (note the sign in our photo), you’re not going to want to wander around looking, either.

    Great to see that Rent-A-Ruminant has an affiliation with Amazin’ Grazers. For a normal backyard a smaller herd is what’s needed. I know of a few locations that could use this service prior to listing a home for sale. Thanks for blogging this.

    Was driving by, saw the sign, so I had to get out & see the goats — luv ’em! Sooo much nicer than a weedwhacker!!

    We walked up the hill to have a gander at the goats this morning. My daughter wanted to pet them, but they were busy working, so we just enjoyed watching them from the sidewalk (where we could easily see them and not disturb our neighbors property). Love that people hire goats to do their blackberry removal. Coolest idea ever!

Sorry, comment time is over.
