The New Neighborhood Lawn Service

One thing about living in the country is that you'll never know what critter you'll find in your yard next. We're used to frogs, lizards, snakes, turtles, and deer, but the horses were a little surprising. They belong to our neighbor, but they like our grass better.
This one was taken at the beginning of June. I was going out for the evening and was a little surprised to see them in our side yard.
And these were taken just the other day, after I saw one of them walk right past the front door, practically on the sidewalk. We told our neighbor they were welcome to stay as long as they wanted...less mowing for us!

Yes they are great for that. We haven't mowed our yard since Spring of 2007. They don't give you that golf course look, but they keep the grass short! And, if you're really feeling green, you can collect their droppings and create some "natural" gas to offset your energy needs. :D

I was going to add, free fertilizer, if you like that kind. (I prefer cow poop to horse poop, though.)

Definitely not something you see everyday!

Excellent! Josh always talks about getting goats for just that purpose!

A healthy, growing lawn is actually most likely to develop a thatch problem that needs to be removed (dethatched) for the lawn to keep growing strong and healthy.
