Branching out a bit from my little patch of paradise to about a mile away. Here, under the high voltage transmission towers of our local utility, Southern California Edison, a tree nursery has some fallow land.
Being hot and dry summer conditions here in Southern California, the brush builds up only to dry out and cause a high fire danger.
The nursery hires a local goatherd for about $3,000. He brings his flock in and dozens of hungry lawnmowers get to work.
While dry grass and brush might not be a complete, nutritional meal for the goats, they have a feeding pen (at the top of their range in the above picture) that has supplemental feed and water
It also makes quite an attraction in our neighborhood.
