Back when I still had the farm,I was doing a lot of rescue work through the Humane society.
Just after Easter every year,there were always baby chicks and the like turned in there.The tradition around here was to give baby chicks as an Easter gift,a practice now largely stopped!
But since I had a farm,I'm the one they called about these chicks,ducklings and gosling's! It wasn't long before I had a large gaggle of geese,about forty to say the least.The gander there was really quite possessive and decided I was a threat...I ended up naming him Sid as in Sid Vicious(it was the '80's)I couldn't walk outside without Sid tracking me down! The minute I pulled in the drive,there he was,lurking,waiting
for me to open the door! This gander was nuts and he had it in for me,every where I went on that farm,I had to watch out for ol'Sid!Finally after a lot of pain and suffering,I decided enough already
time to either put his ass in the stew pot or replace him! I ended up doing the replacement thing,I went to the hatchery and got a hybrid that would grow to be twice the size of Sid!
In no time at all the new gander was twice Sid's size,and still growing,he took over Sid's place.
Ol' Sid just mellowed out after that,he'd been put in his place.I never had a problem with him again,he actually started to follow me around just for the company.He'd became a pet,one that we spoiled.He lived out his last years as just that,Sid died fat,happy and at peace with me and his world~

Sid sounds like an unforgettable pet. We had ducks on our farm. That is until a snake got them all..

Being horny always seems to get guys in trouble.
When there's no "chicks" around, we just seem to get along better.

Aint that just the truth! Thanx Man! I agree

Oh Spunky - I ADORE your farm tales. They're always kept to a readable length and are so emotive. I can almost see Sid chasing you round the yard - you conjure up such images.

Please keep blogging about The Farmyard Years - they're wonderful tales from what sound like such relaxed times.

Way to go Spunky and Sid !

I took pictures of some geese up in Austin and my friend thought I was weird. LOL But they really are wonderful birds to watch.
Glad Syd died happy.

Hey Nic~ They gave me many hours of pleasure just watching them do their thing on the farm! Thank You for this~

Never had geese here. They are great foragers and weeders of the garden, but they want to get in the tobacco and flap there wings around, breaking off leaves. The leaves are what we sell, so that settles the goose issue right there. lol Later

I here that Kpb, We had to fence off the truck patch to keep'em from eating all the plants! I can see the hazard there with tobacco

I've heard that geese can be viscious! lol Guess he decided since he was no longer the Alpha Male in the barnyard he would behave himself....glad you chose the replacement route (even though I've heard goose is very good...I've never tried it though!).

Thanx Sexyaries, Yes They can be very aggresive,But Sid learned his place once he wasn't the "alpha! anymore,He really made a great pet after that

So happy to hear Sid didn't end up as stew!

Sounds like Sid was just "testing you", to see how much you would put up with! When he saw you were fed up, guess he thought he better make a friend!

Loved the story!

spunky11961 replies on 8/27/2006 11:48 pm:
Thanx Silver, I'm glad there too! He was a much better pet than a greasy meal

Sounds like Sid had a very happy life there on the farm. He definitely made it an interesting life there for you.

All geese have attitude and ganders have the most - when they are 'top gander' that is. Nice, Spunky!


spunky11961 replies on 8/27/2006 11:16 pm:
Thanx *EG* you're right there, Geese are born with attitude, and the head gander can be full of attitude,Sid was like that first

Thats a nice story, we had a mean goose "george" who was alot like that, I guess they all have a bit of an attitude.

Thanx Cozy! That was really nice, thanx for sharin' that! One of mine was named George,how ood is that! But he was really tame compared to Sid~

There's a moral to this story: be a feisty strop-ass and you'll be a pampered pet. Don't and it's the pot-boiler for you!

Good ol' Sid. I'm glad he had a better ending than his namesake.

There ya go Man~ Who says being a pain in the ass doesn't pay off in the end I've never looked at it this way,but you're right here

Hey Spunky, I heard that Geese's are good watch dogs...They patrol and make such a rackus when strangers enter a yard. In fact when I stayed at a cousin's home they had a couple of them guarding the home to warn them of intruders.
Cute story about Sid...am glad you never stewed him!

spunky11961 replies on 8/27/2006 10:19 pm:
Hi Flo! That they are,Many of my friends wouldn't get out of their cars, They drove up and honked so I could shoo the geese away! And I'm glad too,he became a member of the family almost,besides Goose is greasy and tastes like crap! I never killed any of mine,they all were like pets~

Good you didn't stew ol' Sid. Well actually, he may have made quite a good stew! Just kidding. He just needed to know what side his bread was buttered on.


spunky11961 replies on 8/27/2006 10:14 pm:
Thanx KarmoHunny! That just about sums the whole story up here! And Lucky for him,He wasn't served up with a side of Bread and butter
Seriously though yes he did need to see that,and he became quite a friendly pet after that!~
