Save Arlington's Goats


This was just too funny to pass up writing about ...


From the Sun Gazette ...



What's an environmentally conscious and easy way to cut grass? For Arlington residents Bryant Nichols and Matt Haggerty, the answer was a pair of goats they bought on Craigslist.


You can even view the goats and rally in their suport with their very own goat cam.

This is hilarious! Please comment.

Hmmm. Much as I love this idea, I'd want to know what their neighbors thought. As an environmentalist, I like the idea, but if the goats were making a racket every day at 6am, I wouldn't be so approving.

The website is www.saveourgoats.com. I know these guys, and their goats, and they are really quite. They just eat grass and leaves and sit around all day.

Most of the neighbors didn't even know about them. Check out WAMU 88.5 Monday morning - the reporter got comments from our neighbors. The goats rarely "bahaha", that's just a stereotype.

The Fox news special interviewed a neighbor with kids and he seemed to love having goats next door.

I used to live in the Dominican Republic, the noisiest animals at night are pigs, chickens and dogs. Goats are pretty quiet and docile.
