Covered in geese

Elise is responsible for the goslings. She walks with them to good vegetation spots and guards their safety.
Every week, we have the goslings graze on three different vegetation types. We collect droppings to study parasite load, diet choice and digestion.
The goslings have to graze for three hours on a given vegetation type becfore we can start collecting the shit.
The work is very prominent visible in town and Elise got an article in a Norwegian newspaper: Aftenposten. You can read the text here.
|Taking care of the goslings means being outside long days. Elise is doing this from 10 to 22 hour, Maarten walks with the goslings at 4 o'clock and allows them to take a bath.|
