Come and see moms taxi.
I think that she was taking her children to pre-school :)
Not really hahaha, as the goslings were tired from all of the swimming and they were resting on her back. With the dad in close attendance at the back.
They did however have a problem as the sides of the water channels were too high and although the goslings had no trouble jumping in, they could not get out and back onto land. So what to do?
I first took some photos of them and then as you will see in here, we made a plan to try and help.
So come and see.
The mom swam a few times to the sides of the pool, as her thought was to jump up onto the side with the goslings on her back in order to get them out of the pool. It was a great idea, except for one thing. The goslings could not hold on to her back.
She would jump up and goslings would simply fall back into the water.
Here you can see that her idea didn't work.
Then she found an edge in the pool for the goslings to sit on.
The little ones tried to get the water off so that they could dry.
Then the mom saw that all of the goslings could not sit on the ledge and she collected them all again. This time she took them to a water plant, but it was still too small for all of the goslings to fit.
There was this little cutie that the dad collected in the photo above.
So what was the solution? A ramp of course, but there were no wooden planks around, so we nicked a cautionary sign for wet floors and anchored it into a submerged water flowerpot.
Would the ramp work? I don't know as we had to leave, but yes, I think that it will work to get the goslings out. We dare not to have tried to catch and take the goslings out by hand, as the male goose is furious in his attacks. He wouldn't understand that we were only trying to help.
So in the morning we will pop in there to see if they are all okay. Just another unexpected adventure today and I have told a few of you before that the spring season is a season of surprises.
I hope that you have enjoyed the story and the pictures.
And That's All Friends.
