Can You Believe Goats Eat This Stuff?

Thistle’s got beautiful flowers and deadly thorns.  This one is about 4.5 feet tall.  We don’t have a lot of it, thankfully, and recently bought a sprayer to treat it.  Our goats actually ignored it until it started flowering, now it’s apparently a tasty treat.  It reminds me of the movie Braveheart.  🙂

    I don’t care for the thistle plant itself but I’ve always kind of liked the flowers. 🙂
