In past years I've noticed that at this time of year the goats start eating the bark on the branches previously left for them to eat the leaves. There are still lots of branches piled up waiting to be chopped up for firewood and the goats, especially the 2 kids, are feasting now on the bark. I'm quite happy to let them continue. My guess is that there is lots of nutrition in the bark, evne if it is harder to digest.
