Four Legged Mower

Grassclippings - 4 Legged MowerIf the thought of mowing the lawn each week brings you out in a sweat, then why not consider getting yourself a Goat? 

You will not need to feed it but you may need to protect the other shrubs and plants in the garden, oh and the washing line too!

It will not be too selective at eating in lines, nor will it leave stripes in your lawn only a fair amount of 'natural fertiliser' but it will eat the weeds and moss and turf grass plants.

The other thing about being a Goat is your Birthday will be close to Christmas and New Year and a Christmas and Birthday present will always magically turn into just one present and a birthday cake can sometimes be non existent!  I am talking about those born under the star sign of Capricorn (December 22nd - January 20th) of which I am one.  There are many personal frustrations of being a Capricorn Goat and visiting a restaurant inbetween Christmas and New Year or after New Year.  The main Chefs are off and you get the part time Chef preparing your dinner for you and your guests and often have to pour your own wine because the Wine Waiters cannot be bothered!   Your friends are hard up for spare cash or on a diet because of their New Year resolutions, yet it's your Birthday and this these kind of problems do not exist in June!  To be honest, this year was the first year for ages that I received a Birthday Cake and how nice it was too.  I also had a fabulous and unexpected present and celebrated my Birthday with 82,000 people so I cannot complain, also wading through a case of Ale.

The sign Capricorn is one of the most stable and (mostly) serious of the zodiacal types. These independent, rocklike characters have many sterling qualities. They are normally confident, strong willed and calm. These hardworking, unemotional, shrewd, practical, responsible, persevering, and cautious to the extreme persons, are capable of persisting for as long as is necessary to accomplish a goal they have set for themselves. Capricorn are reliable workers in almost any profession they undertake. They are the major finishers of most projects started by the 'pioneering' signs; with firm stick-to-it-ness they quickly become the backbone of any company they work for.

Their intellects are sometimes very subtle. They think profoundly and deeply, throughly exploring all possibilities before deciding on a 'safe' alternative. They have good memories and an insatiable yet methodical desire for knowledge. They are rational, logical and clearheaded, have good concentration, delight in debate in which they can show off their cleverness by luring their adversaries into traps and confounding them with logic.

They are also great at eating grass.  Worth considering. 

**Happy Birthay to Fellow Capricorn Goats**
