Let’s Goat Buffalo!

    1. You would have to sanction off what you didn’t want goats to eat. One of my pictures shows wire wrapped around a tree so that the goats would not eat that. Good luck with goats, Timothy. What I saw was a sight I will not forget for a long time. I plan on going back to see their progress. Thank you for leaving a comment. 🌟🌟🌟

      1. Spartacus2030 here. Remember me? I just made a hefty comment, tried to copy it and it disappeared. I never chew my cabbage twice. Better check and see if you will even get this. My blog told me I’m not here; something about my being stuck in the future or something.
        Big wet sloppy kisses! Enjoyable read…

      2. Yes, I remember you, Darrell. Long time no see. I tried to get over to your blog but I got this notice not to. *sigh* At least I tried. I’m glad you enjoyed this post. 🤗🤗🤗

  1. I had no idea goats were actually eating weed! I need goats!!!!! That is a great post, Amy, and I agree I take a bow regarding the effort those people make in order to save the environment. Role models!

    1. These goats are incredible to watch, Erika. And yes these people are role models to which I have the greatest of respect for! May many more climb onboard to make a difference so that Mother can actually have a chance to heal!! Thank you SO much for this comment, dear friend! 💜💜💜

  2. This is awesome! Nice to know goats sterilize these invaders! I’ve seen this in the UK. They use sheep, horses, pigs and goats to help clear fields. People “rent out” these animals to help clear their land. It’s the best of both worlds! I applaud Sean and Jen and their family for taking this project on as naturally as they can!! Loved the story!! Thanks Amy! Much love to you! Donna

    1. Thank you so much, Donna, for taking the time to view this most important post. I was so impressed by what Sean and Jen are doing that I made up my mind to do a post on what I saw. It gives me so much hope to know that the generations in back of us are actually not only seeing but doing. Beautiful!! Much Love to you as well!! 💜💜💜

  4. Marvelous post Amy! A ray of hope! In the UK they do exactly the same in some areas, and on Portugal it’s a normal practice to keep fields clean! But I do agree: not a good idea to take them close to your garden though! 😂😂😂❤️

    1. Thank you, Sonia. Yes this is ray of hope especially here in the States when so many are still using chemicals. No it is not a good idea to allow goats near gardens cuz they eat everything. BIG (((HUGS)))!!! 🌟🌟🌟

  5. Great story and pictures, Amy. I have read about places having pretty good success with goats to clear areas that are difficult to access. I wish them luck. I just hope the goats don’t form a union 😉

    1. Thank you, Dan. This story took up a lot of my time last week. I wanted to get it just right and do justice to a cause I admire so much. No worries about goats forming a union. They are doing what they love most …. eating! LOL ☺️

    1. THANK YOU, CM!!! Bless you for helping me get the word out about this company and what GOOD these people and goats are doing for our planet. I am so thrilled that Como Park decided to go this route and not Roundup. BIG (((HUGS)))!!! 🌟🌟🌟

    1. YellowCable, I was told goats will eat, then lay down to sleep, then get back up and begin to eat again. They just love love love to eat. IF there is something to eat, they will eat. I know. I observed them for 4 days. ☺️

  6. Great lesson on stewardship! Often times we desire more without first being good stewards over the little, but these folks are indeed setting themselves up for “more.”

    “His lord said unto him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. Thou hast been faithful over a few things; I will make thee ruler over many things. Enter thou into the joy of thy lord….Mathew 25:23

    Great job Sean and Jen, email me at twelvestonepublishing@gmail. (Anthony Smith) Might be able to do some future collaboration!!

    1. Anthony, if you go to their site, http://www.letsgoatbuffalo.com, you can find Sean and Jen’s email information on their contact page. You do know we are in NY? This is a very small and local company that is just starting out. They are the nicest people you would want to cross paths with. Yes they are faithful stewards, not only for these goats, but for our Mother, Planet Earth. They are SO busy right now their heads are spinning. This job is a massive undertaking. Bless you for reaching out to these awesome people. What an inspiration they are to me and to so many others!! Much Love to you!! 🌟🌟🌟

  7. GO Goats! Goats are used here to manage the airport grassy areas – they truck them in, leave them with a herder and dogs to keep them out of trouble/off the runways. They are perfect workers.
    They were also used at Girl Scout camps to clean around the individual platform tents – and to run snakes. They do love poison ivy..just remember to move them to different spots or they eat the area completely bare.

    1. Goats are being used a lot out West here in the States and just beginning to here in the Northeast. They are perfect workers. I was astounded by how much they can eat! And yes they do eat right to the ground. If you noticed in at least one of my photographs, bare dirt is evident where once stood extremely thick vegetation. Just amazing! The owners do know what they are doing and are working their “butts” off literally. As my post pointed out, this is a huge undertaking! Thank you for your valuable feedback. It is much appreciated!! 🦋🦋🦋

  8. Great post. Here in the East Bay hills near San Francisco herds of goats are used to clear dry grasses and vegetation that can be a fire hazard.
    Hundreds of goats can be seen on a single hillside. Once an area is clear the fences are move to cordon off a new patch to be devoured.

  9. In England, Japanese Knotweed is a huge problem in the increasingly large numbers of places where it grows. Its partner in crime is Giant Hogweed, which many people are allergic to. These goats are a great idea, and let’s hope that the geneticists can breed some kind of Super Goat that can eat rhododendrons as well!

    1. I agree, John, that goats are a wonderful idea. Their humans work their “butts” off to pull this off. I really HOPE this catches on here. Japanese Knotweed is yes a huge problem here as well.

    1. I was not aware that you live around here. If you still do, I highly recommend that you go to Como Park yourself to see this. These goats and this huge project are fascinating to witness. If you do, email me and I will meet with you. I’d love to meet you in person. I again thank you so much for the reblog to get the word out that some people in this world are really doing their best to bring health back to this planet. BIG (((HUGS)))!!! 💜💜💜

  11. Sounds a bit to me like Jamaica. We love seeing all the animals…especially goats, roaming free when we visit.

  12. Fabulous. I wanted a coupla goats in the back 40. I have the land, but the city has a stupid grandfather clause about farm animals. Dumb. One day, may we get back to natural common sense solutions.

    1. I hear you, Joey. This use of chemicals has to stop. My Heart so goes out to this wife and husband team. We’ve had so much rain here and goats will not eat in the rain. I’d say since they began in this park the first of June, one-half of those days has been rainy. Hope you’ve had more sun then we have had. 🌟🌟🌟

  13. Such a wonderful way at combating this invasive weed.. here in the UK its also been introduced and its causing no end of problems on waterways and is spreading out far and wide, it is making other plant species disappear as is chokes everything else out..
    A remarkable couple with a natural solution.. Love goats and your story.. Thank you for the time lapse photos before and after.
    Such a Great post Amy 🙂 And one that really spoke to me, as we do not use any chemicals or pesticides on our garden .. So was wonderful to read this couple’s forward thinking and Action.. ❤

    1. Please keep Jen and Sean in your thoughts, Sue. We’ve had torrential downpours again and again, and unfortunately this couple will not be achieving their goal of one acre with their goats. Goats will not eat in the pouring rain. I’ve spoken to Jen multiple times and she is so motivated by her dream that nothing is going to deter her. My HOPE is back that the younger generations are picking the ball up and running with it ….. oh thank goodness!!! 🦋🦋🦋

      1. I will, the rain here has been relentless too, many places not too far away from us have been flooded. River banks overflowing and homes ruined .. And yes, I hope that our younger generation find their voice and intent to heal Mother Earth and the damage we have done..

    1. Hi, Michele! These goats are amazing to watch. Unfortunately, there has ben so much rain here that the goal of one acre I sadly doubt will be reached. These goats don’t eat when it is pouring out. The exciting part of all this is that people are realizing we just can no longer use chemicals! (((HUGS)))! 🌟🌟🌟
