Weekly Photo Challenge – Partners

This week’s photo challenge is Partners.

Whether two of a kind or ten, give us subjects that are in sync with one another — show us partnerships.

I’d like to share some photos of some very hungry and friendly goats. They are urban partners. The partnership is pretty simple: we have weeds and they’ll eat them.

More than 150 goats participated in this weed abatement program, helping to reduce fire hazards and to help the soil with their low nitrogen manure. Thanks, goats. Good job!

Vegetation management is traditionally handled by a tractor. Our feasting partners provide an environment-friendly alternative and they are more than willing to help us out. A few weeds, no problem. Heck, they’ll eat anything.

So, don’t get too close. They might eat your shoes! Not to mention the electric fence.

You deserve it. Nice work, goats!
