Smart idea


When times are tough, folks get creative. Here in Topanga, residents are required to perform brush clearance, for fire prevention. Starting in late spring, the buzz and funk of gas-powered weed-wackers fills the air.

This clever entrepreneur is advertising an alternative method of brush clearance. "Rent-a-Ruminant! Goats and Sheep for hire. Before the grass turns to fuel, hire our herd!"

I love this idea. Very cool that goats can provide this service. Several times a year I see a craggly field being cleaned up by a herd of goats that have been rented for this purpose. Yeah!

Seeing how the well-manicured lawn tries to mimic m'lords sheep-grazed English fields, this is an idea whose time has come (again).

That's awesome! I have a friend with some property that's getting pretty tall in the weeds and grass department. I told her to see if a local farmer would rent out their animals. I was kidding, but someone actually does that. Perfect!!!!! :-)
