We have had an extended 4th of July vacation while our transportation was in the shop for repair. We did get interviewed by RI Monthly online magazine! check out the article  http://www.rimonthly.com/Blogs/ridaily/July-2015/Landscaping-Goats-in-Rhode-Island/


We are FAMOUS goats now! (at least locally)

Day 8 at the dam in Woonsocket, RI. and the goats have moved on to another section. They removed 20 years of overgrown brush in 7 days! It was a little over 1/4 acre with approximately 25 goats each day. The new area they began only has 3 years of growth so it will go even more quickly. The goats are home now until Monday 7/6/2015 for the 4th of July holiday.

Day 6 at the Dam at Harris pond, Woonsocket, RI. The  goats have made short work of the most densely covered area. We can actually see down and walk along the fence line. My three big guys , Isaac, Tanner and Thor are working the outside , parking lot side of the fence today.
