The animal sanctuary/petting zoo near my house, Horsepower for Kids, has a small pond with a handful of geese (somehow “gaggle” of geese just sounds silly). The one above thought he was “King of the pond” standing on the overturned rowboat.
He (or she) seemed to be very popular. Late October isn’t really nesting season but here in central Florida when it’s 85 degrees I guess all year round is nesting season. It was interesting to watch them interact. A third one was trying to get in on the act.
They were eating mangrove leaves that were growing through the fence.
I’m having fun hanging out with the farm animals. Having not grown up around them, I find them interesting. With that said, it’s fun to watch them for a while and then go home to my house near the city in Tampa. I’m not sure if I would love them if I had to do the chores that go with keeping them. These were all from my trip to Sweetfields Farm north of Tampa one Sunday morning in late May.
While Mom was being fed by the tourist, one of the babies decides to get a meal as well.
At Sweetfields Farms, where we walked through the sunflower maze, everyone was going crazy over the baby goats. You can feed the goats so the babies were getting close to the fence. It makes you think “I want a baby goat!”. Then reality hits and you don’t want grown goats living in your tiny backyard in the city. But it was fun watching them play that morning.
