On a recent wintry day, I went down to see how the animals were doing. The geese are pretty territorial, and have no problem standing up to goats. A few times I’ve found them defending the goat hoophouse from its rightful occupants, and on this day wanted to make sure the goats weren’t out in the sleet because of some stubborn birds.
Not to fear; all were happily bedded down together. This photo doesn’t quite do it justice becasue they all jumped up as soon as they heard me and I only had time for a quick photo from the doorway. Still, a very cute scene and a good sign for future interspecies relations.
