Goats in the City

Hundreds of goats are down the street from us, on the hillside below Laguna Honda Hospital. I'm guessing they are the Goats-R-Us goats employed around the Bay Area to clear noxious weeds.

This is their 3rd year at this site, eating their way through 22 acres of thistle, brush and poison oak.

I got quite close to them. Unlike sheep, each goat is different in size and markings. They're also much smarter than sheep, and interesting to watch. To see them, drive around the back of the hospital, through the parking lot, and down in to the lower parking lot.
