Ducky and Goose in October

Just look at how big Goose is getting.  He's now three and a half months old.  His owner figures that Ducky is producing 30 quarts of milk a day, just to feed him.  Plus, of course, all the grain and hay that he is now eating.  He'll probably be weaned at about six months.  I have a funny feeling that Ducky won't mind a bit.
His owner, by the way, is head over heels in love with him.  She already has a show name for him -- Wingman (remember Top Gun?).  I think it's perfect.

Goose is impressive. It's hard to believe he had such a rough start.

Ducky and Goose...MOL what a surprise we didn't expect to see a beautiful mare and foal.
Gorgeous animals.
Mom said she was glad she didn't have to produce that much milk when my human sis was a wee one! LOL

Ah, what a handsome little guy! It's amazing how they grow, isn't it? Wingman is a good name. So hard to come up with that perfect moniker.
