Those Goats Are Kicking It Montecito Style

Brush Goats 4 Hire have been all over the place the last 6 months. They were up near Rattlesnake then Tunnel then TV Hill, and now on Romero Canyon for the next few weeks. I was coming down the fire road and glanced off the edge and saw what I thought was new fencing. I stopped to check it out because why in the world would someone put fencing along a near vertical hillside? As I got closer the "baaaas" of goats answered that question.

The location is nearly impossible to see from the trail and hidden by steep terrain. The fence line is located on a ridge which was once a trail someone in the neighborhood must have created. Pretty funny I have been using Romero for years and never new this trail existed. The trail is all beat up but seems to run from the Romero fire road down to the road below? The goats have been hired by a concerned neighbor who wanted to create a defensible space between their property and the sea of brush behind their property. Aren't these goats getting full?
