Her Goose Breaking up Fighting Roosters

I think I've mentioned before how my young gander, Junior, likes to break up fights between the roosters. Well, this morning I got to witness quite the display. Two of the roosters, Toby and Rascal, were facing off, ruffs up, in full "kick boxing" mode. Junior got right in the middle of them and they both stopped and pretended to peck around on the ground before they'd go at it again. Junior stayed right with them, right in the middle again every time a fight broke out. He reminded me of a boxing referee, having to pull one boxer off the other one in a clench. It was too cool! He kept at it, never becoming aggressive himself, and kept herding Rascal off to the side. Finally the roosters got tired of the event and went off to their separate "corners".
