Hungry goat

Noisette

Noisette has been a boon.

Normally, at this time of year, Max performs dangerous acrobatics with a strimmer on the side of the moat.

Noisette has changed this totally and as a result my heart beats at a much more regular pace.

We move her approximately every two or three days, and this gives her a chance to cut everything within reach (boy, are we careful where we put her!).

Now that the field at the back of the house has been cut, we can put her at the top of the bank.

Being a mountain goat she thinks nothing of the steepness of the bank, and just makes her way down eating everything on the way.

The brambles at the bottom are next, I hope.

The photo is a bit dark, so you can’t seem them, but they are thick and grow at the rate of knots!

Yes, she’s earning her keep!
