hey im not an expert on geese but check out these pics...they look similar, the slight diference could just be a slight breed variation...

Its a farmyard goose. They are a crossbreed, I have 3 of them and if you just want a couple fo geese around the place, they are perfect.

Seven years on - I wonder if the subject goose is still with us? Also wonder whether Tribe of Honk is still on the forum or not (mentioned in the thread).

I don't think TOH has been on the forum for a few years, but he is still alive and kicking!
