I have been walking the six ?african? goslings and three Harlequin ducklings down to our pond-probably three times now. Tickled pink with the stram but not so eager to go into the deep pond. Well today was the first day the goslings went in=at least two of them and they dove under water and swam around like otters? Then seemingly invigorated burst from the pond at a run and scared the other goslings on the edge-and thus themselves. Both did it, not just one, and the ducklings do it too. Is this just water play? At first I thought I would have to perform a water rescue but I think they were doing it on purpose and not sinking. Anyone else see this? Honestly we were holding on to each other laughing. Once we realized they were not drowning. They were so tired afterwards I swear I am not making this up=one of the ducks was SNORING.
