    I have a sweet boy named Yeezma (he is half Sebastopol, half Toulouse) and in the fall, his mate Kronk was mauled and killed by a dog. He has my two drakes for company, but they're a bit rude to him now that they're adults. He also hangs around the goats, but... well, they're goats, y'know? I worry he might be lonely :(
    He has been a lot quieter since Kronk died, less apt to honk at me when I call to him. He still eats as normal and bathes, but just seems a little off these days.
    Should I try to find him a buddy or two?

    Absolutely. Even a young gander is better than a goat if you can't find him a woman.
