Goat Update: Job Well Done!

Our goat friends from Amazin’ Grazers Urban Goat Rental have completed their work last week!  Nearly all of the overgrowth in the backyard at the Clothworks Headquarters has been cleared away by these amazing creatures who had quite an appetite!!  It seemed like our goat friends did not want to stop eating.  Now came the most challenging task– herding the goats back into their truck!

Adrienne and Goat

With treats to coax the goats , Adrienne of Amazin’ Grazers devised a genius plan with the assistance of some of the Clothworks staff to help lure the goats one by one back to their truck.  A holding pen helped keep the goats from running up the new found rocky ridge in our backyard.

Marvin, a member of the esteemed Clothworks warehouse crew, became the ‘Goat Doorman’, while Debbie, Clothworks shipper extraordinaire, donned her new title, ‘Goat Wrangler’.

Debbie attempts to use a carrot to wrangle this little fellow, but I think he must have eaten too many plants in the backyard as he appears to react with indifference.  Adrienne attempts to wrangle the other little fellow playing a game of hide-n-seek in our new found shed.

That Debbie has quite the goat wrangling skills!!  Look at her lead two of them at once!  She must be a ‘Goat Whisperer’!

Adrienne did not have as much luck as Debbie.  I think this fellow had so much fun feasting on the brambles in the backyard, he did not want to leave!

Eventually, all goats were led back to the truck!

Time to ‘goat’ bye-bye!

We at Clothworks thoroughly enjoyed having Adrienne and the goats from Amazin’ Grazers take care of business in our backyard!!

Here are some pictures of the yard taken at different stages to show you the progress of the goats:
