These mixed friends are clearly well-loved, hand fed, and expect all humans to deliver. I was quickly surrounded. Multiple goats and chickens, but only the one duck.
Interestingly, the duck is one of those European kinds that walks very upright. It was quite adorable.
They followed me down the driveway. I was getting a little worried- not wanting to lead them into mischief in the road. They followed me through the woods all the way to my car! Not good. I finally started throwing sticks at them to encourage them to go back to their own yard. I hate doing stuff like that, but talking to them in a friendly way only made them come closer. I would have been happy to be nice and make their acquaintance, but they needed to go home!
They seemed a bit like the musicians of Bremen.
My animal encounter today wasn't so good. I got nabbed by a little Jack Russell terrier. Ruined shirt and pants and a blood blister that smarts, but he didn't break the skin.
