This Sounds Like a Job for the…..

GOATS!!!!!

Meet the newest members of the Clothworks ‘herd’, the hardworking goats of Amazin’ Grazers, a local affiliate of Rent-a-Ruminant, contracted to help us take care of a heavy duty job.  As most of you might know, Clothworks just moved into a new facility at the beginning of the year and now that summer is almost here, we’ve left one of the most challenging jobs for the professionals to tackle– clean up the backyard!!

It’s a Jungle out there! (and somebody’s breakfast-lunch-dinner, too)

With summer on the way, that means warmer temps and days full of sunshine (it’s not always rainy here in Seattle);  the Clothworks team would like to enjoy the season by setting up a picnic area in our backyard.  With all of those rainy days, as you can see, our backyard is definitely overgrown and in need of some serious work!

Adrienne, owner of Amazin’ Grazers is a pro when it comes to herding the goats!

She brought 13 goats with her for this job!

Not everyone was willing to get to work right away, but Candice and Debbie of the Clothworks Crew were able to coax this little one back to the herd.  It’s not everyday you can add ‘goat-wrangler‘ to your job description!

It didn’t take long- these goats immediately went to work, chomping away at the overgrown brush in our backyard.

  1. How cool is that?!! Never knew there was such a service! Awesome. I wonder how long it will take them to do the whole job.

    • It is pretty nifty to see these amazing animals in action! I will post some ‘in progress’ pictures soon. In just 24 hours they were able to accomplish a lot- clearing out an area that was almost the size of a large swimming pool!!
