Wildfire Control in Action

I decided on a late evening walk yesterday, arriving at my destination (Oak Canyon Nature Trail in Anaheim Hills, California) just before dusk. Getting out of the car I realized I’d gotten there too late; it gets dark very quickly. I therefore figured I’d wander just a wee bit up the trail and turn back. Well, I didn’t get very far before hearing what I thought was water running. It wasn’t water, it was goats! Chomping, rustling, chomping, pushing, shoving… it was a sight I’d never seen. Incredible, chaos, dust flying… one goat even got into the tree to reach a choice bite! I saw a sign explaining the goats were at work, doing a very helpful job eating dry brush, helping stave off wildfires.

I wandered up the trail as I’d originally intended, then turned around. As I approached the goat enclosure, a truck backed up to the fence. I realized it was feeding time. Wow, what a photo op that was! I hope you enjoy, and wish I could share the little video I shot with my iPhone. The noise was absolutely UNreal as my mom would say! ~SueBee

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
