Goose Girl and Mothers Day 2013,

One of my mothers' day gifts was a present of two chinese geese(I think.)
 Well they are birds no doubt, swans? white ducks? turkeys?-these are big mammas-think 14 lb Christmas turkeys and you get the idea!

They are also beautiful, white feathered with yellow beaks and feet.The females is docile, blue eyed,benign. He the cob (according to google!) has a big yellow ornate beak and is slightly wary.

Anyhow here's to a new adventure!Any suggestions for names?

I don't feel anything like the confidence or assurance of the goose girl below.

I wonder why she has that switch.........?

The Goose Girl is an 1891 painting by Adolphe William Bouguereau, a French academic painter. The Goose Girl is one of many examples that Bouguereau specialized in paintings of beautiful women, and innocent, barefoot, young peasant girls.
It is part of the permanent collection of the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University.
