UGH! My last goose is gone. Every morning I let her out of her custom little goose hut to wander an enclosed yard with 5 foot rolled wire (nothing can get in) with freshly planted rye and her own swimming pool and every night at sunset she goes back into her little house and I lock her in with a snap lock that coons can't figure out. I used to have a pair, but lost the gander awhile back.

But I guess even our best intentions don't always come thru - last night at sunset I found her crouched down by her house - her head was chewed on with punctures through her neck, the big black knob on her nose was torn off and hanging and her upper bill was broken almost in half. She comes hobbling over tome and sits at my feet all cold and in shock and breathing irregularly. I took her into the garage (it was dark already outside) and looked her over - her wounds were beyond repair and even if I did patch her up, the risk of sepsis was too great - I think a vertebrae was broken in her neck as well. I just couldn't fix it this time.

I HATE HATE HATE having to put animals down that have been chewed up and are still walking around suffering and I hate it when they are pets and not just a Jane Doe. UGH. Hubby is great with a gun and quick. Usually coons cause these kinds of messes, but usually after dark during the wee hours of the morning. This poor gal had gotten attacked sometime around 5 -7pm yesterday eve. I'm thinking bob cat or some sort of large feline type that can climb a fence and hunts during the day. She lasted the longest - never been able to keep waterfowl around (even protected) for more than two years. **** varmits.

Ive been splendid :) Riding has been exceptional! At the shows we have done since i left ive been champion of all of the divisions i enter in. So im soooo proud of Romeo hahaha and well as far as horse shopping goes, we are not having much luck. And health wise, i was bitten by a Brown Recluse and wwweeeeelllllllll I may or may not have just let it sit there for 3 weeks thinking it was just a mild infection... Went to the hospital and im healing now :) Rode yesterday, jumped Romeo after him having a week off and he was flawless. So in general, im a happy camper. :) Thanks for asking!!

So sorry cc. My daughter had a pet goose that followed her through the house like a dog:) when it got too big for the house we built a pen for it outside and the neighbors dog got ahold of it. She was sooooo upse and wanted to kill the dog but I wouldn't let her. I felt so bad because I wouldn't let her keep it in the house anymore.

Yeah i know -_- my friend (fellow rider) Kelsey was sending me OH SO HELPFUL pictures of the inside of what the bites look like, as well as risks, what happens inside, and what my leg will be like... -_- she was more freaked out than my parents! lol. BUT!!!! The infection didnt eat my tissue because before i got bitten i was taking medicine for a Central Nervous System issue (i am paralyzed at random times for like 2min) and that medicine was going down to my leg instead holding off the infection from the bite. so yay for medication not working! hahhaha

Congrats Nuisance! Funny how all of a sudden they decide it's best to cooperate!
CClop so sorry, it's awful to see animals in pain. Good that your husband was able to take care of things.
TBJ nice to hear from you again! Ugh glad you survived the bite. Quite an impressive record you have with your shows! Congrats to you and Romeo!
