I've really gotten attached to my little geese friends. They are so graceful when they float around the pond and they look so cute strutting around the pasture. If they get too close to Bucky, he'll chase them, but really they have been co-existing nicely. The dogs have even gotten used to them.
Yesterday I saw them wandering around the pasture so I grabbed a loaf of bread (we used to feed the ducks/geese at a pond when I was small with bread and they'd become your best friend!) hoping they'd come a little closer to me. Well as I was tossing torn bread towards them, silly Bucky kept taking it all. I'd through a piece and he'd run after it and eat it. I finally had to give up because I didn't want Bucky getting sick and plus there was no way to get the bread past him. What a funny horse.
Today is a snow day, no school for the kids. There's not any snow on the ground, nor is is snowing right now but it's supposed to ice this morning and then snow after 9:00 a.m. but no accumulation was in the forecast. The kids are sound asleep and they will be so happy when they wake up on their own and realize there's no school! All except Ashlyn that is. I woke her up ealier to tell her to turn her alarm off that there was no school, she was actually upset, she loves school. She's a freshman this year and is so happy at her new school.
