I had to get the big lenses out for these buggers yesterday at Caerphilly Castle as I had a couple minute chase from a nasty white one because it didn't like my dogs. I didn't realise geese had tiny little teeth:rolleyes:

The 2nd one isn't quite in focus on the goose I wanted, he put his head down. I was getting ambushed from the rear and I wasn't hanging around to have my arse bitten trying to get another picture:p They were eating out my wifes hands but they hated me with the dogs. Hissing and wings up was what I got...

A friend of my dads used to have a few geese in the farm yard, way better than a guard dog!!

I always give the little bugger a wide berth!

Next time I go to the castle to get some pictures at sunset I will not be taking the dogs:rolleyes: With having two farm bred bc's they love the geese as they are both from a long line of working collies. They listen to me but I don't fancy the chance of having another chase on the go:rolleyes: I actually want to get some pictures this time of what I went there for:p

One of the neighbours had geese and they decided the road was part of their territory and they used to chase us up the road pretty much everyday, I am far more scared of geese than I am of dogs.

Mum bought a gosling years ago for Christmas dinner. Needless to say he survived, my dad made a fool of him and used to feed him malteezers from his hand, he to was a brilliant watchdog and made friends with an old white hen we had and followed her everywhere. He lived to be 31 years old and died of old age.
