The retired girls and wethers have moved to a location South of Staunton. They are working on an area that was planted in pine seedlings that got overtaken by Autumn Olive. You can see how thick the Autumn Olive is.
While we were there today checking on the goats we met the competition! It is a giant saw hanging from a helicopter. This picture does not do it justice. Check out the video of this thing at work. We told the guys working on the ground that we would take care of the low growth and they can take care of the high growth. :) Click on this link for Video and this link for Photos of this new site.
