I love goats. My imaginary homestead has a small flock of various sorts. I look forward to posts filled with goat photos on the Juniper Moon (nee Martha’s Vineyard) Fiber Farm blog. I mean, who can resist that face? And now, Scientific American informs me that goats are highly effective at fire prevention. As they are voracious eaters, and fairly short, they eat out the underbrush, grasses, bushes, and small trees that keep forests burning.
