Remember the 2 geese who came to stay over the winter? Well they are still here and the female goose just made herself a nest and has laid 6 eggs. Nick walked around to the side of the pond she is on and he could see from there. I was reading up on the gestation period for geese and it's 23-30 days so in a couple of weeks, hopefully if all goes well, we'll have babies!
When Nick walked over to that side of the pond, it's an area we don't use, he actually sank in mud up to his waist and was getting pulled in deeper. When I was telling my neighbor about it, she said that legend has it that a team of work horses sank in that mud and they never got them out. I wonder how many of these "legends" she knows?
