I have this horrific Bradford Pear tree in my front yard. The lower limbs are like shark’s teeth. Every year I trim them, then new ones follow gravity down into their place. It’s impossible to mow under the stupid tree. Honestly, it’s way past its normal life span. I keep waiting for a big wind to split it in two. I would like to have the space for more actual fruit trees.
Anyhow … I cut some limbs today and my goats were just across the fence. A captivated audience. So I had an idea. I thought that I might toss the limbs into the goat lot and let them snack a bit. When they’re done, I’ll just drag them to the burn pile in the back of the lot.
Well … let’s just say that the pear leaves and little tiny pear nuggets were a big hit. They’ve been feasting all day!
