There is a war being waged in the Back Forty. (nobody was injured in the war) It’s not what I was expecting when I went for a walk with the goats this evening. I saw the pair of Canada geese hanging out again. I was surprised that they were brave enough to let me get close to them.
It wasn’t long before the goats began browsing by them. My goats are used to geese, so they really didn’t even pay any attention to them, but the geese were getting a bit peeved that the goats had entered their territory.
Without warning, they launched an attack on poor, unsuspecting Joani. She fled in fear. Geese 1. Goats 0.
Joe, being the wise goat she is, decided she was not about to engage in battle; she merely gave them the goat stare of death, and they gave up. Geese 1. Goats 1.
Soon, they found their next victim, Muffin.
Muffin quit browsing and prepared to engage the enemy.
And this melee goes to the goats as well! Geese 1. Goats 2.
The geese were not about to give up though, and they flanked Muffin on both sides.
Suddenly, it was a surprise attack!
Casey stood watching behind the battle lines, grateful he was not about to receive the wrath of the goose, but who was she after? Was it Muffin again?
No! It was a surprise attack on Blaze!
Poor girl didn’t see it coming. She took off, startling the rest of the goats.
The Canada geese took their place of victory on the old log. Today, they had won the battle, but they haven’t won the war.
