Geese & Goslings

Can you tell which ones are the young ones? They are almost as big as their parents! Did you know that geese graze on grass, just like horses? They keep our lawn mowed, although this isn't the lawn, this is the horse pasture. The horses ignore them, for the most part. Occasionally they will get too close and receive bites from the angry adult geese. Why they don't kick them is beyond me, but they never do. Attitude is everything in the animal world and other animals will give you space, regardless of how much smaller you are, if you are meaner than they are themselves. It's very interesting!

The problem with these honkin' lawnmowers is the mess they leave (ahem) behind... ;-)
