Jimmy Stone Goat Spa goats clearing weeds on Dillon Street
The goats are proving far more entertaining than a weed eater, though maybe not as efficient. Ambassadors for their kind, they've already progressing on the diplomatic front, with talks underway across Eastside of Dillon Street head man Bobby Beard. Start of a new epoch in vegetation control? One would hope so.

By Melissa Stone
The two goats in the accompanying picture are resting after a long day of hard work eating weeds. They have been commissioned from the Jimmy Stone Goat Spa in Clay Ridge to help clear vines on Dillon Street.
Pa Stone has been working on this project for a while Ė the goats were convinced to tolerate a collar and chain and have grudgingly agreed to leave the spa for a brief visit to the big city.
So far, they seem less effective than a weed eater, but considerably more entertaining.
It has been decided that the experiment was worth the effort even if they donít do a decent job of vine clearing because the grandtwins love them; and in MeMelís book, that is always a success story!
As a side note, the grandtwins have learned that a goat says "Baaaa" and they were excited to demonstrate that to everyone they saw today.
Watching them and their buddy, Bobby Beard, shout goat impressions back and forth across the yard was an added bonus!
