Live and let live people!
If your neighbor wants to have goats, let them! for goodness sake!
The experience we are having on our little backyard farm, right in the middle of 80920 is fantastic!!!
You should see our kids bringing their friends over to see goats in their playground; pet the bunnies; learn about honey bees; or chase the chickens! It's a real hoot!
People are always looking over our fence and checking things out ---- and never, not one single complaint! People are usually curious and amused, and often go home with some very freshly laid eggs!
Our goats are the sweetest animals! Their precious little goat berries go straight into our gardens for the best fertilizer ever! (can't say that about our dog's poop, can you?)
If you ever happen to pass by, you may even hear them - but, they are nothing like a barking dog - it's a sweet gentle "call", not a loud obnoxious "bark"....
Goats may not be for everyone (ahem),,,,,but that's okay - we are not talking about mandatory caprine ownership here. People are still free to buy their doctored up milks in the supermarkets. Some of us would just simply like the freedom to provide fresh, wholesome food to our families.
So give the goat people a break! Stop judging! Be nice!
Peace out folks!
