HOUSTON – What’s better than having a high priced, heavy lawn mower cut your grass? Have GOATS do it for you!
The Houston Arboretum & Nature Center has brought in more than 120 goats to assist with “mowing” slopes with overgrown vegetation around their two Woodway ponds.
The goats from, Rent-A-Ruminant Texas, will focus on 1.5 acres of land around the North and South Woodway ponds this week, now through Saturday. (10/10)
The goats are literally onsite to do what comes naturally – grazing – and working on one pond area at a time. The public is welcome to view the goats “at work” on any day while they’re here.
The goats are contained in designated areas, and they are managed by a goat wrangler.
The Houston Arboretum welcomes visitors from 7 a.m. to dusk every day. Admission is free; there is a small parking fee daily, except on Thursdays, when it’s free.
Watch as Lauren Kelly chats with Christine Mansfield from the Houston Arboretum, and Kyle Carr, Rent-A-Ruminant Owner.
