PHOTOS: Weed-Eating Sheep Munch Their Way Through Half Moon Bay

Imagine 200 sheep in your front yard! Sheep hired by the Coastside Land Trust mow down thistle in front of homes along Railroad Avenue on Saturday.

On Saturday Half Moon Bay Patch caught up with Coastside Land Trust's sheep, who were eating up invasive plants on the Railroad-Right-of-Way (RRoW) conservation easement between Poplar and Granelli Avenue in Half Moon Bay

The man pictured in the photos is herder/rancher Ronald with his sheep dogs, who are very friendly with visitors, too. Ronald calls the sheep "borregas," Spanish for sheep, and are believed to be Loaghtan Sheep with their four-prong horns.

Coastsiders are welcome to visit the fluffy little workers as they slowly move north along the RRoW over the next couple of weeks.
