Do you think ....

I could convince my husband this would be a good idea:
Never cut the grass again! Buy a goat

Cuts & Fertilizes At the Same Time

Yes, a goat. Not as neat as a lawn mower, but good enough. In one end, out the other. Cuts the grass and feeds the lawn at the same time. Get your own goat today. They do an excellent job of keeping the grass down, although they can be a bit indiscriminate at times.

They are not very good at a light trimming of course, big mouthfuls of grass from the center of the lawn is more their thing, not good at neat edges where the grass and the fence line meet, but in general they do a good job. Some customers hang on to their back legs and hold them up to direct their head. Reasons to buy:

• A good investment no gas required

• Highly reliable too (nothing the local vet won’t sort out)

• Affectionate & lovable animals- Environmentally friendly to boot.

• Free goat droppings for the compost pile.

This was an ad on a gardening page I came across.
It was meant as a joke.
But as much as I hate mowing my acres of weeds  lawn.
I thinking it doesn't sound too bad.

Been there, done that and I'm going to do it again this summer!

They will also trim your trees, your shrubs, your roses .....

At least you can pass your goat off as a 4-H project .... Mardell doesn't buy that excuse.
