Default Need a Mascot

So instead of just having BREEZE in blue, with a touch of gradients. I want to add a mascot to my logo.

I was thinking of animals... Animals that survive off grass... All I could think of was a darn goat.

If I focused on hedge trimming & branch cutting, I'd put that long necked freak of a dinosaur... (can't spell it for beans)

If I chose an insect, it would be kinda disturbing to look at... like I'm a exterminator.

So what animal deals with grass, one that has a stronger bond with grass over others?

Hay doesn't count!

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
How about a velociraptor? Is there anything wrong with using something that might be considered 'a little scary' to small children as a mascot?

How about a Red-Nose Pit Bull. I have one that eats grass all the time. That would look cool.

Did you ever see the movie Napolean Dynamite? When he talks about the coolest animal ever is the Liger? Then he draws it with pencil. Maybe you could use a liger too!



Or maybe have two mascots that are in mid battle. The velociraptor vs the liger and then when your customers see the logo they will always want to ask you which one was stronger and which one would win the battle and that could be a great ice breaker for you. Then after explaining which was stronger, you could go into your sales pitch.

Memorable quotes for Napoleon Dynamite

Deb: What are you drawing?
Napoleon Dynamite: A liger.
Deb: What's a liger?
Napoleon Dynamite: It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed... bred for its skills in magic.
