The Goats of Mayberry

 

The goats are in and they’re doing their job. As many at 1,700 goats have been grazing on our duck club and they are removing much of the vegitation choking our duck ponds.

 

This is Walter the Peruvian goat herder. Talks about as much English as I do Spanish.

 

Walter says the great Pyrenees guard dogs make short work or coyotes if they bother the goats.

 

 

Here they are in action thinning down our thick stands of cattails and alkili bull rush.

 

Here’s one of our ponds as it is rising. Water shows much better after grazing – should attract ducks.

 

Not many ducks around yesterday, but a few sat on the edge of the flooded pasture to the north of us.
