White Pine Needles, Yummmmy!
Well, the goats think the white pine needles are a delicious snack. If I hadn't watched them choose twigs, thorny raspberries and tree bark at points this summer, when they had access to tasty grasses, I might think it was just out of winter desperation. Of course, that is probably also true. When the meals every day are hay, hay, hay..and more hay, some pine needles start looking good. I think they would irritate or tickle my throat if I ate them. But the goats were thrilled to have some fresh greenery. (Josephine on the left and Molly on the right)
