Should she wave a bottle of eucalyptus oil over it?


Tea tree oil. The expensive one not the 10% diluted one which doesnt

Goats will eat anything.
They wont eat Electric fenced plants. Mind you it will also surprise
your Mum at times and give her heart quite a Rev/start.
Lol!! I know.....she needs to do that. I think she thinks it's
charming the way they stare stupidly through her glass doors.....
Er is it the goats or is it her....staring stupidly (no offence,
electric or otherwise) I mean. Goats were designed to eat anything.
Anyone keeping goats that will not eat everything, has a defective
goat or mind. Goats go to great lengths to eat the uneatable. Your
mother will become quite smart after having been butted on the bbbut.
Goats are quite tricky. This is why the devil is sometimes seen in the
guise of a goat.
You cannot trust goats. (All this information was taken of the Net and
is ISO 9001 certified.) (Except the bit about) your mother who is
probably in the spell of "charming goats" Snap her out of it before
its too late... (GRIN!) Dont let her even think about donkeys.
She thinks donkeys are sweet...enough said. Dad has put his foot down
on that one fortunately. She's quite good at keeping them out of the
vegie garden....many years of trial and error....but she'd like a
'flower garden' out the front. Or any garden. Right now she has lots of
rocks, some dead leaves, sand, aloe vera and lavendar. Oh, and the
rosemary.I might just suggest she gets more of that. I'm going to have
a chat to her about natives too; I'm sure there are quite a few in the
bush around her house that they won't touch, so I think she should try
getting her hands on those.
Where/what place exactly is she?
SE Qld, Granite Belt area. So the soil is basically very fine granite.
I'm not sure about local native nurseries but last I recall there weren't
many for some reason, or they were miles out of town.

It seems the goats are in the wrong area. Theres nothing to eat except
you Mum's garden! (grin!) I reckon she may be in a sparsely populated and
vegetated area. Possibly alkaline soil. suggest getting onto this site for
help

As to whats goat resistant, what a question to ask.
Try tin cans? As suggested previously. electrify the garden. Which reminds
me
I once wired a tree with Christmas tree lights, full 240 volts to the
trunk one nice wet day, no trouble with goats, but the tree died.
Shocking.....


Lol you make me laugh.... yes, she is in an open woodland type area, so
not a lot of forage unless you're a roo. Only you can't milk roos. So the
goats get hay, grain etc...thanks for the link, I'll look it up and give her
some names...she seems to think the internet will burn or
something.....thanks for that


Whoops the pohlmans link died. Was OK last night...

I'ls see if I can find another....

Pub crawls are usually every friday night....just pick a pub and join in.
Drink until you get booted out then crawl to the next....that's the
traditional pub crawl......I agree about the garden sites. And it's
definitely the goats. Possibly camels as well. I'm suspecting an alliance...

Yep it was the goats again. Give up all hope for your mum....
Straight from Wikopedia this informing snippet.
This puts goats with animals such as rabbits and other vermin....


A goat is said to be truly useful both when alive and dead, ( I like
this bit, so it doesn't matter if you kill them(grin!)) providing meat
and milk while the skin provides hide. A charity is involved in
providing goats to impoverished people in Africa. The main reason cited
was that goats are easier to manage than cattle and have multiple uses.

Feeding goats

Goats are reputed to be willing to eat almost anything. Many farmers use
inexpensive (i.e. not purebred) goats for brush control, leading to the
use of the term "brush goats." (Brush goats are not a variety of goat,
but rather a function they perform.) Because they prefer weeds (e.g.
multiflora rose, thorns, small trees) to clover and grass, they are
often used to keep fields clear for other animals. The digestive systems
of a goat allow nearly any organic substance to be broken down and used
as nutrients.

Contrary to this reputation, they are quite fastidious in their habits,
preferring to browse on the tips of woody shrubs and trees, as well as
the occasional broad leaved plant. It can fairly be said that goats will
eat almost anything in the botanical world. Their plant diet is
extremely varied and includes some species which are toxic or
detrimental to cattle and sheep. This makes them valuable for
controlling noxious weeds and clearing brush and undergrowth. They will
seldom eat soiled food or water unless facing starvation.

Goats do not actually consume garbage, tin cans, or clothing, although
they will occasionally eat items made primarily of plant material, which
can include wood. Their reputation for doing so is most likely due to
their intensely inquisitive and intelligent natu they will explore
anything new or unfamiliar in their surroundings. They do so primarily
with their prehensile upper lip and tongue. This is why they investigate
clothes and sometimes washing powder boxes by nibbling at them.

Goats will consume, on average, 4.5 pounds of dry matter per 100 lbs of
body weight per day.

They'd rather not eat gorse and blackberry, if there's anything else
around!

Years ago I lived in Wellington (NZ) on a hillside section. The
landlord said I should borrow the neighbour's goat and tether it in the
garden above the house to graze down the gorse & blackberry. I can
attest that the goat didn't eat gorse and blackberry, though there
wasn't much else on offer.

gardening gurus for plants that will handle dry conditions that goats will
not eat...she will be very very grateful!! It's sort of dappled shade in
some parts and full sun in others; she likes cottage gardens and already has
lavendar and rosemary growing. Thanks


They'd rather not eat gorse and blackberry, if there's anything else
around!

It appears that goat was spoiled and educated.
