Will a goat eat over-grown grass?

Ok so my back garden is it pretty bad shape, the grass is really overgrown and there are some weeds and nettles starting to come up. My friend has a saneen goat I could borrow for a week or two, will it mow it? I don't think a normal lawn mower would go through it..

Fence it in and he'll eventually get it down. Depends on how big though. He could just eat the good stuff and leave the rest growing taller. Probably out to just mow it. Just go slow. Or wait for winter.

My grass section of the back garden isn't very big at all, about 20mx20m if even that. I don't know much about goats to be honest, would it need any other feed?

Some people feed goats alittle amount of sweet feed and others feed them pellets. When I had goats I just gave them a couple of hand fulls of sweet feed just so they can get some grains in thier diet. They do good on grass and eat some weeds too.

I think it would love it. The goats we used to have wanted weeds...Turned their nose up at grass...And ate things I never would have dreamed they would....
