Healing Hooves has worked on diverse range of projects over the last 14 years. We have worked for many different clients in urban and rural settings: a golf course within the city limits of Bellevue, WA, a business park in Hillsboro, OR, and park departments in Forest Park, WA, Fairview and Gladstone, OR as well as homeowner associations, private landowners and city, county, state and federal agencies.
Healing Hooves provides on site management of the goats to insure a successful project. The goats are contained within portable electric fencing. The fencing keeps the goats in the right locations and provides protection from predators as well as other potential dangers. The on site manager also interacts with the public to answer questions and to manage any situations that might arise during the project.
