Default Lists for vegetation dos and don'ts for goats.

I hate starting new threads for something I am sure has been posted but I suck at finding things on my phone. We have a pasture full of kids that are not quite weaned yet so I want to see the list again before throwing clippings over the fence to the adults.

Thank you. Of course I see neither of the things I need to trim.... sweet olive shrubs and crape myrtles. Guess I will play it safe and put them on the burn pile. There's going to be A LOT of both of them and they've never eaten either.

I feed mine crape myrtle clippings all the time with no ill effects.

Good. Because I have 2 that are about 20 feet tall that are about to come down. It would be a shame to waste all those leaves.

Black Eyed Susans? I see them on all the lists, but my goats eat them whenever they get their hands (hooves?) on them. I am keeping them out of a browse area right now because it's covered in them!
