but I thought you had goats...

I spent a large chunk of the evening mowing the front goat pasture. Why? Because my goats are picky eaters and there is only one in twenty who will eat the less-than-affectionately-named horse mint that loves to take over the yard in the summertime. It is not terribly nutritious nor tasty to goats. And so, just as it starts to bloom, I mow its little head off. grr! I understand we are supposed to get rain tomorrow (maybe) and Wednesday (probably), so I'll be spreading grass seed out tomorrow after I feed everyone.
