Dirty Water

17 Apr

Is it any wonder I have a hard time keeping the water tubs clean for the goats?  So far, this is the only goose that’s figured out he can get in and out of the 50-gallon tub.

He really like it in March when he had a nice warm bath.

      Yeah. It’s hard to be too mad.

    That goose was having a wonderful time! Too bad a goat didn’t come and chase him away! 🙂

      The geese are way more in charge of the barnyard. The goats steer clear of the geese.

    Is he/she a Toulouse Goose? Pretty bird with blue eyes! Funny pic- but I know how aggravating it is. We had some ducks do that. They hit the water and poop!

    • Teresa April 18, 2015 at 8:55 pm #

      This is an Embden cross. Not sure if the other half is Toulouse or African.

    Goose spa day….

    • Teresa April 18, 2015 at 8:55 pm #

      He thinks everyday is goose spa day. I need to get their wading pool set up again.

    Bad for you and the goats, but a big fun and a very lovely photoseries!
    Have a nice weekend

    • Teresa April 18, 2015 at 8:55 pm #

      I need to get their pool set back up for the summer, even though they have some wading pools in pasture.

    What a perfect bathtub!! I hope the others don’t figure out how to get in and out too! 😉

    • Teresa April 18, 2015 at 8:56 pm #

      Me too! I kind of thought they should just go play in the water out in pasture and leave my water tub alone.

    I can’t help but chuckle. Sorry.

    • Teresa April 18, 2015 at 8:56 pm #

      I do too. Just don’t tell the goats.

    How funny!

    • Teresa April 18, 2015 at 8:57 pm #

      The goats aren’t amused, but it does make me smile.

  12. Pat April 18, 2015 at 9:32 pm #

    What a great time he has in the water!

    • Teresa April 18, 2015 at 9:41 pm #

      Those geese and their water. They do love it.

  13. Stephanie's Images April 18, 2015 at 9:56 pm #

    That was so sweet to see it bathing itself.

    • Teresa April 18, 2015 at 10:00 pm #

      They do like to keep themselves clean.

  14. Joyful April 19, 2015 at 12:15 am #

    Great shots! It’s clear this goose has made the goat water into it’s own personal spa.

    • Teresa April 19, 2015 at 10:53 am #

      He has claimed it! Nobody else is getting his tub.

  15. Anni @ I'd Rather B Birdin' April 19, 2015 at 5:10 am #

    Lovin’ this series of nature in top mode!!! And the goose, is a doll!!!

    I appreciate you sharing the link to this post for I’d Rather B Birdin’. Have a super week ahead!!

    • Teresa April 19, 2015 at 10:53 am #

      He is certainly king of the water tub.

  16. Marie-AZ April 19, 2015 at 10:40 am #

    Such a happy goose! he probably thinks the bath is there just for him. 🙂

    • Teresa April 19, 2015 at 10:54 am #

      He knows I put that there just for him. Obviously…

  17. Gunilla April 19, 2015 at 1:40 pm #

    Awesome shots! He’s really enjoying his bath. 🙂

    • Teresa April 19, 2015 at 8:38 pm #

      He does quite regularly.
