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!

Jimmy Stone stops by on Father's Day to negotiate with workers



2016-06-19 - Dillon Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Melissa Stone.
Sunday afternoon, Father's Day followup. As you will recall, in the first photos, the goats were in the midst of one of their many breaks. However, as is so often the case, after the boss, Jimmy Stone, came around today to check on them, it was a completely different situation. He must have given them a good pep talk because they are working hard at the task at hand now! - Melissa Stone

Bobby Beard introduces new friends

Bobby Beard was also kind enough to drop by this afternoon to visit and perhaps brush up on his goat impressions for the next grandtwin visit. The grandtwins, also know as the Z's, also known as Zander and Zayne Knight, have a very busy social calendar and weren't able to come by to pose for pictures or practice their Baaaas today! - Melissa Stone
