The weather has been gorgeous here in Montreal! I have been taking some lovely long walks. On one of these walks I visited a farm where there are many horses, a pig, some deer, an alpaca and some ducks and geese. Well, I came across a gaggle of 3 geese...I don't know their breed, but they were large and white with orange beaks. As soon as they saw me coming down the path they started their squawking. They made certain to "let me know" in no uncertain terms that this was their territory. They greeted me with their squawks, and myself, knowing and understanding their 'language', I knew that it was quite possible that they could attack me. LOL! So I just continued walking slowly and deliberately, gently, showing them that I posed no threat to them. They chased me down the path and kept squawking until they were satisfied that I was out of their 'jurisdiction.' None of them attacked me, but I knew the potential was there...however, the path that I was walking on was narrow and it was very difficult to avoid them. On the positive side, I got to pet one of the horses who seemed to enjoy my company as much as I enjoyed his/hers. I love horses, and living in a big city like Montreal I don't get to see them often, so this was such a joy and treat for me. The farm that I went to is about an hour away (bus ride). Just had to share this adventure with you all. :)
