a lawn mower

I got me a new lawn mower. I went all out, and got one of the fancy self-powered, fully automated models. Have a look:

Unfortunately, the “lawn mower” is constantly trying to get onto the back deck and into the house, and not taking care of the weeds in the back yard.

So I went down to the local hardware store to price out a chain around his neck (a dog collar is too short), and a 50ft. of steel cable (yes, the coated kind), and some connectors to hook everything up. Bottom line: that setup costs more than the goat, and a low-end BBQ is cheaper.

So I still have some decisions to be made… 😛

  1. After a week of taking apart my back yard, and then setting his sights on the rest of the house, I had to return Billy back to his original owner today. He demolished one side of the pen that he was locked up in, JUMPED over the the fence and got lose, and broke through a leash meant to hold a 150lb dog.
