Privet on the menu

goats eating privet Dec 16 1

The only greenery available to feed to the goats at the moment are ivy, bamboo, brambles and privet. All are available on the Whinnies site where are livestock allotment is. We've been feeding the goats mainly bamboo recently (and apples) but this week we've turned our attention to one of the hedges on the site which contains a good quantity of privet. As I tend to look after that hedge, I had deliberately allowed the privet to grow rather than be trimmed. I now have a modest feed crop for the goats. They love privet and thrive on it.
