This Saturday we brought home two new additions to our 'family'...little male and female goslings. Unfortunately they were 'straight run' which for those who don't know means that you don't know if they are male or female. The fellow at the store and I figured that the larger ones might be males and the smaller ones the females so with that idea I picked out two that I liked. We've never had geese before so this will be a learning experience and hopefully a good one. We have a little female Shih Tzu that thinks she's a lion (if you've read my earlier post on her you'll know what I'm talking about!). She loves to chase the chickens so we thought getting a rooster would put her in her place. Nope...she had the rooster on the run in no time! So...I had heard that ganders will protect their mates...plus they're pretty big(eventually) so now I'm hoping that one day down the road if the two shall meet...that Chelsea will be put in her place once and for all!
In the meantime...we are trying to pick the perfect names for these two little 'fluff balls'. I've been racking my brain trying to come up with a good old English name for each of them but I'm at a loss! The best names I could come up with have been Simone and Garfunkle (Note to self-change to Simon if she turns out to be a male!). If they were ducks I'd name one of them Mrs Puddleduck...I think that's such a cute name. If you think you have a name we might like please send it along...we'd love to see it!
Aren't they just the cutest little fluff balls!
