It is really looking like a farm yard around here these days: we added a pair of geese!
This pair will hopefully raise a few clutches of eggs to expand our goose population to 5 or so permanent residents and perhaps a roast goose feast for 5 or 6 special occasions throughout the year. In the meantime, i’m excited to see how well they help with the grazing/mowing and am enjoying watching an entirely new species of livestock move about out my studio window. They move so gracefully, make lovely, gentle, brushing honks, and make Pocket seriously nervous. 😉
Welcome to the farm, Honk Williams and your lovely bride.
The goose doesn’t yet have a name, though i’m thinking something old fashioned is most suited to her… Abigail, perhaps?
