They are also not allergic to poison ivy. The City of Boston employs them to keep conservation land and golf courses free from poison ivy. The goats have an all you can eat buffet! I love them.

Like Cheryl Strayed on the PCT, I did once see a llama on the Long Trail. He wandered away from his humans. So cute!

I don't see why dogs have to be banned if they are under control of their humans. As we have seen with all the partying going on at the top of Mt. Katahdin, humans can make more of a mess and be noisier than any of or four-footed friends. The only thing is, I would not want to subject my own pooch to a long (longer than a day) hike.
