    Well after a weeks wait, I finally got my breeding pair of Buff Saddleback Pomeranian geese this afternoon.[​IMG]

    After seeing those steely blue eyes and watching the goose give me the stare of death on the ride home, I just had to name her after my mother (same blue eyes and stare of death...lol). Since I named the girl Jean, the boy got my dad's name. So, for your approval....here are my goose and gander...... Jean and John.

    So far I love them: They are so beautiful. The most fun I've had in a week was watching the horse and cow check out the newcomers today...what a riot when the geese hissed at them. [​IMG]
    John and Jean aren't too crazy about being here just yet though. I think I'd be more than a bit freaked out if I were goose-napped from my huge flock and locked up next to a bunch of strange ducks [​IMG]
    with two huge peeping toms gawking at me all the time. I'm sure they'll be fine once they settle in though. [​IMG]

    Hi

    They are lovely looking geese, you must be thrilled [​IMG]

    Look very striking and you dont often see the Buff Saddlebacks here in the UK.

    Quote:I am very thrilled; they are such beautiful and interesting birds. The seller also had a young Grey Saddleback available and I was sorely tempted. However, I had promised the DH that we would just get these two and see how it went: For once, I decided to actually not bring home more than I went to buy. [​IMG]

    Besides, the man I purchased these from has a HUGE flock (he has guineas, ducks, geese, turkeys, and chickens on this particular 3 acre part of his farm) and isn't that far from me. So, their is always next year to add to my collection. [​IMG] He also has the cutest little pigs called KuneKune's that were very tempting. [​IMG]
