The extra effort is worth it

Although it would be quick & easy to whip out the gasoline-powered weed eater, I prefer to take hand clippers, squat down, grab the tall grass, cut it off, put it in a bucket & carry it to the sheep & goats. It is a mindless task that allows for lots of thinking time as I listen to the animals around me, observe an occasional bug in the weeds & enjoy the smell of the fresh cut grass. These pictures are of the initial "mob scene" when I first dump the cuttings but it settles down quickly as each creature grabs a mouthful & runs to a quieter place to enjoy it.
