Goat Update, People!

I wrote recently to let y'all know about the Flavor that is Goat.

In that post, I praised goats for their taste & texture as well as for the attention showered on them in the Bible, and mentioned their abilities to help wean farmers off tobacco production, ease the transition of Somali refugees, remove weeds in place of pesticides, and range free in varied terrain.

Now we learn that they also prevent forest fires.

It seems our noble caprine brothers graze upon the brush that gives "brush fire" its undeniably apt name.

What can't goats do? They fight toll trolls, they give us wonderful cheese, they make fancy sweaters, and they have those weird horizontal-slit pupils.
Goat, I salute you.
