Move over Weeds, We ‘Goat’ This
What’s goating on here? If you’ve been to Piedmont Park recently, you may have spotted goats! No need to worry-they are here on purpose. In an effort to clear the Park of overgrown shrubs and invasive species, the Piedmont Park Conservancy introduced goats as a more organic, sustainable option.
We had fun following the goats on their journey!
When the goats first arrived at Piedmont Park, many guests were thrilled to see them. Look at those horns!
All types of goats were used to help with this restoration project. Mostly, the goats were either Boar or Kikos.
The goats were free to eat as much grass as their four stomachs could take. They eat approximately five to seven pounds a day!
Also, there are dogs! Although the goats were fenced in, these two siblings made sure they had extra protection. Meet Bowie and Trudy.
Strike a pose! Who knew goats were so photogenic? We captured this quick picture while the goats were on a break.
Drink up! The goats frequently stopped for water after being in the sun.
Thanks to Get Your Goat Rentals for helping with our restoration efforts!
