Sweet Deer, a Daddy Goose, & a Cock-a-Doodle-Doo

Mom saw these new animal friends of mine at the village of Laren in Holland. Laren has a large park with lots of animals in it, like Deer and Geese!

There was a daddy Goose that was so fat, he looked even bigger than the deer! It looks like he is a Grey Pomeranian Goose, which is common in Europe.

The Deer were super friendly and tame because they were used to lots of people visiting them.

These deer has such sweet faces!

And they loved to get fed by the park visitors. I think this little guy must have still been hungry with his tongue out!

There was one big Daddy Reindeer, with extra-large antlers on his head! He must have been the big daddy of all the other deer.

Then what did my mom see running around the park? A White Leghorn Rooster! He had something on his head too! It was bright red, and mom told me it is called a "comb". Now why would a rooster need a comb when he has no hair??

Last, but not least......I pondered this thought......

The Deer and I have similar fur colors, and dark tails, so is there a chance I am related to them in some way? Ok, that is probably a silly thought to ponder, but it sure would be nice to have relatives who were this sweet and friendly! I am glad they are my friends!






















Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

What wonderful pictures! You have so many new friends. I do think you might be related. Maybe even a long lost twin?

They are such lovely photos. I think maybe you resemble a fluffy lamb more ;O)

MB was going to a BIG wildlife zoo last week and was so excited about taking lots of photos. It rained so much that she couldn't go. She was very upset, and doesn't have any nice photos to post now.

Mitzi sure did eat one. MB & MM are not happy about it. She usually brings them in, unharmed, and gives them up like a good girl. MM & MB were out and the temptation was too much.

JB,
That goose is amazing. We have never seen such a huge goose.
The deer are beautiful too! We would love to be able to get so close to the deer to be able to feed them.
And, yes, you do have some of the same color fur as the deer and you are definitely sweet and friendly so just maybe you are related in some way!

Hana said...

Hi JB! The deer are beautiful! You must be related to them, I think! Did your reporter Mom take home a deer for you to play zoomies with?

As for the big grey goose, wow, he sure looks big! It looks like he is friends with the deer.
