Ashes to ashes
My goats' favourite food is ash leaves. There are lots of ash trees around, often next to public paths on housing estates. The council no longer prunes them due to lack of money so I have been giving a helping hand and have chopped off low branches so they don't whack people in the face when walking past. The branches do, of course, make excellent free food for Pinkie, Georgina, Spot and Spotless.
