    Goat Fund Me

    I drove through Nevada City on Friday where they are having a fund drive to enact some proscribed grazing. Nice proven strategy for that overgrown area of high wildfire risk. They have some $25,000 donated so far.
    I would like some goats here for fire prevention but fear the cougars would like goats for snacks.

    I also drove down to the raging Yuba River. There they could use a Go Fund Me drive to get rid of sunken dams.
    I hate submerged dams.

    I have a bunch of goats. They are really amazing animals. Great for clearing brush, nuisance plants, etc. Recommended.

    These fainting goats are getting popular out here as pets. Doesn't sound like a good survival strategy in the wild but gets them lots of sympathy as back yard curios.

    I have been offered goats which I would truly enjoy. However they would need to be penned at night as I get too many nightime visitors looking for an easy meal. 1:21:19 puma.jpg040mYl5DQ8a5NDtXw%ET7w_thumb_a6.jpgUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_2cc.jpgUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_aa.jpgX5lhPfCeSJOJZ8KWnxQ1SA_thumb_6cc.jpg

    I am going to build a "ridge" in my back acre to climb on my TW. I have seen many piles of dirt in peoples yards overgrown with weeds. I guess because they can't mow them. The goats would be great to "mow" these hills, I think. I guess I'm assuming they like climbing as much as I've heard they do.

    Fred, don't think a "pen" is going to keep any goats you would get safe..... Don't you have a spare bedroom?. That submerged dam sigh looks like the one I've seen near sycamore ranch campground. I think the creek by campground feeds into the Yuba river.
