Snowball, originally uploaded by mhall209.

I did some yard work today that resulted in some blackberry bush trimmings. Most all of our yard waste goes to our goats, and blackberry trimmings are their favorites- thorns and all! Snowball (the angora goat pictured here) managed to get berry branches wrapped around her neck and body. The berry thorns act like magnets to her long mohair coat. She seemed hopelessly tangled, but she had no interest in having me help her out. If I approached she would run away. So I watched as she ate her way out of her entangelment. She was quite resourceful, she used her horns and hoofs, and can stick her tongue out like nobodies business!
