Fun morning at the farm.

I hadn’t been to Horsepower For Kids (sanctuary/farm) in a long time so I stopped by for a visit at the end of December. All of the baby geese that had grown up in early 2020 were still there making the duck pond a busy place.

They had 2 new canadian geese at the pond. They swam close to the dock and I noticed they both had angel wings. Angel wings is a nutritional deficiency caused by improper diet. It means someone was feeding these geese too much bread when they were young and their wings didn’t grow properly. It can keep them from flying well and that’s probably why they are living here now. At least they have a great home to live in now. That’s why it’s so important not to feed the wildlife bread.

It’s fun seeing all of the different crazy “fowl” running around here.

Some of the other residents.

I was admiring this salad. These guys eat better than I do.

Butterflies are seen all year long here.

  2. Oh I would love going to this place! I know we have something like that around here, I’ll have to do some research and find out where it is. The weather is so nice right now. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Hello, : =) What a lovely creature filled park. Many parks I know only have a few farm animals. Love your shot of the cockerel and butterfly. I didn’t know about the Angel wings, thanks for sharing that information. There really aught to be signs reading DO NOT FEED THE GEESE. or ducks or swans for that matter.
