Those who have become follower of kitty justice know that my Pa always had a goat. Remember the Billy that I would encourage to come to the fence so I could take a ride on his horns. Also, Prince's father when he bought the place before WWII, referred to it as "Billy goat hill" or " a goat path to the log house."
I have said for years that I wanted some goats and chickens but Mimi always encourages me to not go there.
Last Thursday evening Prince brought a very welcomed billy goat to the hill and yesterday he proceeded to play with it into the darkness of night. Seeing the damage to my solar frog who guarded my flower bed from the deer and how it can uproot plants, I requested he not go near my flower beds with that orange animal. Being a true UT (University of Tennessee) person, I love orange but not this animal near my flower beds.
The kitty justice is that we have one Billy Goat on the hill. Now for the four legged kind. We call this progress.

Does that pick up or blow leaves? I've never seen anything like that before.

Lady Di,

Does this mulch the leaves? I have never heard of a Billy Goat before. Interesting machine.

Love your hill. One day I just HAVE to visit.

Have a wonderful week, my friend.
Blessings,
Mary

I love goats and mules followed by dogs and horses. It looks like it would blow your flowers out of the bed they grow in.

It BLOWS the leaves. I had the misfortune of getting in it way and it gives you quite a pelting. Peace

Mary
No it does not mulch them just blows them into next week. Do visit someday and we will have a lovely time of it. Peace

Yep that is why I told Prince not to go near my flower beds. When FIL first bought the land, it had goats on the hill and I really think they should return. I already have a pen to keep them safe at night. Just need an enclosure inside the pen. Then we could tether them during the day. Peace

A wind machine. I think I need one for my thousand zillion leave by the front of the house. $ extremely huge Sycamore trees.
I have to goats and they are so much fun. they follow around like puppy dogs. They are very small. Pygoras are a cross between a Pygmy and a Angora. They are fiber goats. MB MB
