Goslings

Since we picked up the goslings it has been raining.  Hey, at least the snow is gone now (other than the odd patch) and we have some green grass!

Sunday afternoon was a beautiful 22c and Son and I took the goslings outside on the lawn to get some fresh air and stretching...







...and the odd nibble of grass.  I'm surprised at how fast they can run... only a few weeks old and they can out run me (though most things probably could)  They like to follow and we have to watch our step lest we squash them.


At this stage the goslings are so adorable, but we have to remember eventually they will be Christmas dinner.... hard not to get attached though.

Aren't geese fun? They grow REALLY fast! Our 4 (1 african, 3 toulouse) are pets, though we may be willing to eat future offspring. Just found your blog, and I'm really enjoying reading your posts. Good luck with the goslings!
