Thread: Need a goat for the day

    Need a goat for the day

    Has any one in Southampton area got a goat I could borrow for a day or so? The grass has gone mad and We just can't be assed to mow it.

    This is the wife's idea BTW.

    we have one,

    she is called "houdini" for a reason,
    they are suprisingly picky about food unless not given a choice.
    dont get sheep, they look for new and interesting ways to die,

    I don't disagree with that but have a slight ammendment to make:

    They wait until you've just injected them with about 100 worth of stuff the vet gave you, then they look for new and interesting ways to die.

    Actually you don't need to inject the stuff into the sheep, you can also inject it into yourself! A friend recently went to jag a sheep and managed to bury the needle into his own leg, and inject the contents. I know this was an achievement but if he'd been going for an interview I'd have said to mention it as a shows an significant committment to animal welfare. The A&E doctors were a bit bemused but after carefully studying what he had injected himself with they decided that he was in no significant danger.

    Is that the A&E Doctors referred to in Caorach's post? I hope they wash their hands before eating.

    If I did have a goat I would call it lunch.

    Not sure how much grass a goat eats, but my guinea pigs could probably do a school football field in a day (if I had enough runs to get them all out at the same time!)

    'flymo' seems an appropriate name for a back yard grazer

    ours got out of a 6foot fenced in area, she wandered along our drive and up next doors,

    and removed every flower head in their garden, he thought it was funny, his wife wasnt so happy.
