^Those goats are so cute. I love their coloring, similar to pugs and siamese cats.

They do better in the shorter areas, I'll probably have to scythe down the really tall stuff but then they can keep the sprouts down to a dull roar.





They're keeping the short stuff short and nibbling the leaves off the tall stuff but leave the stalks several feet tall. As parts get leveled, we will see how they do at keeping them low.



Even buying supplemental feed for them (our short areas of grass are still pretty small and they say the nutritional value of the older grasses isn't as good) it's still less expensive to feed the sheep than to pay someone to mow it.


So, I guess we're cutting our lawn to variable lengths this summer.
And free fertilizer to boot!

Is this upcoming Friday too early to aerate my lawn? Normally I aerate in mid September but weather forecasting to be in the high eighties and low 60's going forward making it feel like it's the right time to start the fall lawn schedule.
