More Before and After
This is the goat pasture 10 days before we let the sheep in to have at it.
The area was overgrown to the point where the goats would not even browse, they couldn't get to the plants that they liked.
The whole place was lush, ripe, and ready for the sheep.
The sheep ate the pasture down to nothing.
The goats don't have anything left to eat, so we now let them out to browse in the yard.
"They made a desert and called it peace." This quote was made famous by Tactius, a Roman author, describing a defeated leaders feeling towards how his people were treated by their Roman conquerors. I wonder if the Romans had sheep in their armies?
