My son and I recently drove through Buckhead and saw an unusual site – a small herd of sheep and goats grazing along in a private yard on Ridgewood. We were both enthralled and pulled over to see what was going on!
This yard had about two acres of overgrowth to clear, and the folks at EWE-niversally Greeen were called in rather than using harsh chemicals. The flock of sheep and goats, along with a couple of very proective sheep dogs spent a couple of weeks at the Ridgwood home. Protected by the temporary fencing and daily visits from the herder himself, the sheep and goats were left to do what they do best – eat!
Dogs come with the sheep to protect them from coyotes. The dogs are NOT friendly they are there to protect the sheep, so beware. Also I found out that coyotes have a hard time seeing black sheep and goats.
EWE-niversally Green was featured in an article in the AJC – read it by clicking here.
Also, their website posts some pretty dramatic before and after photos like these:
