A couple of weeks ago I noticed something had clipped off some cattails in about 6" of water. I assumed it was my geese. Yesterday I saw one of my wethers stand in the water and eat cattails. Later I saw 2 others do the same thing. That is really strange considering the goats normally treat water like something disqusting if they accidently step in it. I remember reading once that cattail leaves have insecticidal properties.
