6am- Up with the Sun! Time to come out from under the chicken coop to greet the day.
7am- Processional time. Hint, a lot of a goose day will consist of traveling in procession with great importance, to nowhere in particular.
8am- The farmer is out! Approach her when her back is turned to remind her that geese like a bit of sweet feed from the bucket she carries to the bottle lambs, but if she turns, RUN FOR NO REASON! Can’t be too careful when you are a goose!
9am- The farmer filled our bucket with fresh water and moved it to a fresh spot so we don’t have to stand on the manure-ring around yesterday’s bucket location. Time to fill this bucket with dirt, down and crud as fast as we can!
10am- Processional! Down to the lower pasture to find some tender grass shoots. Let’s not forget to defecate all along the road instead of fertilizing the grass for the farmer.
11-1pm – Lunch of fine grasses in a shady locale.
2pm – We’re running across the lawn, wings outstretched, imagining that we are capable of flight. If only our bums were a bit smaller…
3pm – One of us saw a lamb out and decided it needed pinching. Farmer told us not to. We resent her, but our water is cleaned and refilled again, so …
4pm – Standing in the driveway as a car pulls in. Don’t get confused about who rules this roost, car!
5pm -7pm More grazing. Be sure to mock the meat chickens in their chicken tractor. Suckers.
8pm – Let’s think about bedding down – Chicken coop again? Why not?
11pm – We are inexplicably out gabbling when the farmer does the night feeding of those cows she brought. Midnight snack.
