    I just spent $8,000.00 having this pond built for my two geese. It has fresh water flowing constantly from irrigation canal, is 10.5 feet deep, 40' x 60' with a beach entry for the geese. The bird you see in the picture is made of driftwood. Where are my "real" geese?

    Oh, here they are in a dirty pan of water.

    OMG you made my day! The picture of the goose in the little pot of water ignoring that beautiful pond, complete with beach entry, is hilarious...just too darned funny and goosey...

    A cup of poopy, muddy water is always much more appealing.

    Lacking in amenities.

    Needs a boardwalk, a dock, a cabana and a fish taco stand. [​IMG]

    Oh good heavens, I knew that was coming, but the pictures were better than I was imagining. I love it! Yep that is what mine use too unless I fill up the dirt hole with water-turn it to mud water---then they swim and swim and swim.

    Well Warden, just get some ducks! Then the geese will haunt the pond and not let the ducks swim. Goose mentality.
