Goat Power

I`ve seen the goat rental directory before, but only in the context of individuals using “grazing service providers” to deal with their overgrown backyards. Now renting goats has gone mainstream. According to the Official Google Blog, Google has hired goats to landscape their headquarters yard.

“It costs us about the same as mowing, and goats are a lot cuter to watch than lawn mowers,” they say.

I haven’t seen any goat rental listings for Canada yet, probably because they’re primarily employed to reduce fire hazards in hot, dry states. But the idea is both brilliant and entertaining. Plus touring goats don’t need as much dedicated space, so everybody wins. Except the people losing their jobs to goats. oh. How do you feel about google’s goats?

    You asked me, on my blog, about using cans to cook in-I left you a reply to your comment. You can find it here.

    I like the concept of your blog and the idea to Living Lime rather than Living Green. Great Idea!
