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?

I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
