Los Dos Ganzos
This time of year, when Miss Goose is either soon to be laying her eggs or is currently sitting on the nest, the goose AND the gander get mean. And when I say mean, I truly and honestly mean mean. She will either be cheering on the dude and won't be quiet or biting him to get him out of the way so that she can get at the 'intruder' (aka - me) who dares approach within eyesight of her egg-less nest. I was on the other side of the barn for crying out loud! Not even intending to come near the nest, but no. The annoying couple would not hear of it. While she was going for my legs and feet, he went for my hand and got it. They go after my brother who conveniently had a stick, but that didn't deter them at all. You can stick your foot next to the fence, and they will bite your shoe through the wire mesh.
