These goats love Christmas trees
Your trash could become a holiday treat for some goats in western Colorado.
The Top of the Hill Ranch in Collbran, about 40 miles east of Grand Junction, is offering to pick up discarded Christmas trees from nearby homes to give their goats some extra roughage during the winter. Rancher Teresa Fletcher tells KKCO-TV that the goats can devour a tree in less than an hour.
Here is Fletcher's post from Facebook this morning, "Good morning everyone.....my hubs and I will be meeting up with Little Mooo Ranch and 5-R Livestock Company in Grand Junction at the Home Depot. Home Depot called us and are donating all of their leftover Christmas Trees....THANK YOU HOME DEPOT"
The Little Mooo Ranch in Fruita and the 5-R Livestock Company in Loma are also collecting trees for the goats.
For more information check out the Little Mooo Ranch's Facebook page.
