Goats Are Great Lawnmowers - Just Ask Google

I hate yard work. I'm not sure there are many out there that actually enjoy it.. Especially the grass cutting part!! I read recently that Google rents goats to "mow" their lawn. ( part of it anyway) I guess they hate yard work too...

Apparently back in 2009 Google started doing this and have stuck with it. It is a much more carbon friendly way to cut grass. And like Google says, the goats are much cuter than a lawn mower. They rent around 200 goats that stay about a week. While the goats "cut" the grass, they are also fertilizing it!! No "kidding"..LOL

So next time you need to mow your lawn, rent a goat or two... Just make sure they cant reach your flowers and shrubs...
