“Hi, I’m called Goosey and I now live at Andrew and Jacqui’s place with their 21 ducks, 2 pigs and a whole lot of deer. I like the ducks best as they come and sit with me, but when it comes to feeding they are a bit quick, so I now am fed separately.
I used to be a wild goose and I would fly into this horse paddock around their feeding time. One day, I got in the way and ended up getting kicked. The kind people picked me up and took me to The Vet Centre. I was Xrayed and they found I had a broken leg.
Things did not look too good for me! I am only a goose and I don’t really belong to anyone. SO .. was anyone going to fix me? Fortunately, The Vet Centre in Richmond has this Wild Life Fund which is gratefully donated into by their great clients.
The end result is I have a metal plate in my leg. I still hobble a bit, and I only fly very short distances now, but life is pretty good. I am safe, fed twice aday and have nice straw bedding to keep warm on in the winter.”
