Watch Goats Eat Weeds In Bothell

Posted by on August 8 at 14:22 PM

I’ve recently whined about the shortage of fully captivating theater in Seattle. But that was before I got an email hyping tomorrow’s Goat Show in Bothell.

Goats are coming to Bothell to help control a thick mat of invasive weeds, such as morning glory and blackberry. A herd of goats from Healing Hooves in Edwall, Washington, will be chomping weeds under the control of Craig Madsen, co-owner of Healing Hooves, and his dogs. Come see the herd in action!

The show starts tomorrow morning at 11:00 am, at In Harmony Organic-Based Landscape Services, 23622 Bothell/Everett Hwy. I can’t promise a full-on crowdpleaser, but watching a herd of goats eat weeds is bound to be at least as interesting as, say, Defending the Caveman.
