    We have a paddle boat on our pond. My goose loves to follow us out on the pond when we paddle out there. She'll also always hang out near the paddle boat when it's on the shore.

    I think she thinks the paddle boat is a giant goose. Is this typical?

    Quote:well i have a goose but no paddle boat so can't help ya there, but i have a 11 week old duckling who is in the house, he loves to lay next to my husbands shoes. I think maybe it's like a security blanket. But i don't know for sure. Maybe she sees your boat and thinks about you being in it thats why she likes to hang out by it. [​IMG]

    I don't even have a pond, but all my geese follow me all around. They are curious and can't stand not knowing what is going on, so they have to see everything.

    They are also eternally optimistic that I might whip out a treat, even though they only get treats once a day. Because you never know, today might be the day.

    Oh she follows us around too. It does take a little bit to get her away from the boat somethings.
