Photo Friday…Geese at an All You Can Eat Buffet

25 Apr

I think it’s aboot time for these Canadian geese to head home!! After just a few grazing hours in our clover field this week they did a ton of damage!

20140425-103242.jpgOn the left is our beautiful tall green clover, on the right is where the grazing happened, leaves totally gone and lots of stems remain.

It still amazes me how fast they can eat through a crop. But when it’s you and 3000 of your closest friends, bulking up for a trip north, at an all you can eat buffet…let’s just say I don’t think they care that it’s our livelihood they are consuming!

I think they got to about 15 acres before we scared them off. So I guess here’s to hoping they leave soon aye?!

    What my wife wouldn’t give for me to eat that many “greens.” Let me know when the meat and potatoes buffet is happening!
