Flowers that goats won't eat

by PainterNoni
I have an old pedistal sink I would like to plant flowers in. The problem is that I have a free range goat herd. Are there any flowers/foliage that goats don't like the taste of?

    I have goats, as well, and I don't think there is ANYTHING they won't eat.

    Goats will eat anything that blooms. They also eat poison oak and ivy

    I hate to say it but the other posters are right. I think if you put fake flowers in there they would it them to!

    I'm beginning to think plastic is cool...or maybe a fountain?

    If you make the sink a terrarium and keep desert plants and iguanas in it - the goats will sniff around at first; then stay away. Goats do have an unspoken respect for animals like iguanas.

    Sounds like you would have to give up one or the other. Goats eat everything...even things they shouldn't. Only thing to protect your flowers would be a high chain link fence....then goats might find a way to get on back of another goat and hop over. ha My neighbors have goats. I was working in flower bed and felt like I was being watched...I turned around and a whole herd was standing behind me watching. They were so quiet didnt hear them come up behind me.

    I decided to use some kind of non edible items as decoration.....I love my goats....and don't really like gardening......

      There are some very cute dwarf holly. Of course I can not find it in my plant catalogs right now, but maybe an Internet search..

    gravailia. It's kind of spiky but pretty and my goats and cow won't touch it! Lavender seems to be safe too...
