The mowers of Ham Lake Campground

There's an abundance of wildlife here at the campground, some wilder than others.  We have a horse, a llama, two emu's, several chickens, peacocks and various goats.

Some of the goats stay inside the fence while others choose to squeeze through the fence and wander about the grounds.

They do provide a fabulous job of mowing in some of the harder to reach spots and are just....well, they're just so cute.

We've been in campgrounds out west where the elk wander the campgrounds, as well as bison. 

These guys are smaller in stature but just as me anyway.

Goats have such interesting faces and I love the way they settle their disputes....with head butting. 

They remind me of my granddaughters when they get going at it.

So there you have the lawn maintenance crew here at the campgrounds.  Where else can you find something that will mow, weed whack those tough spots AND fertilize all at the same time?

It's not baaaaaaaaad work if you can get it.

Speaking of old goats....I have to go get Left Brain's supper ready.

Long Live the Queen


  1. Ooooh, you are so lucky to have such wonderful wildlife all around you. I just love your photos. In my yard, we have a fisher cat (trying to get rid of this one), a bunny and an assortment of birds, squirrels and chipmunks.
    Now I'm off to work. You have a great day, hugs, Edna B.

  2. Yea the only problem with this crew is that they love new growth and that could mean the end of some favorite plants! (Speaking from experience of course)

  3. Bring some critters with you on Saturday night! I will cut part of the yard today and save some for them!!!! we have lots of rabbits but they work pretty slowly. See you around 7.30-8.00???
