    HA!!! Ditto to the first four posts.

    Not only is he a handsome goose and bovine-wannabe, but he is a HAM BONE!

    They’ll think I’m nuts @ work today when I start chuckling just thinking of these pics.

    That Ricardo!! What a gorgeous guy….I’m in love.
    Forget about the cowboys.

    My special wish for today: that I could see the whole farmily in person.
    [Not Charlie, I understand about our lovely coyote.]
    Well, off to work. See ya later.

    He is the most handsome govine I’ve ever seen. But perhaps he’s the only govine as well…

    You have a family of “posers”!! I wonder if they think that lens is your third eye and so they just accept it. (Trying to get into their head)

    We know that Ricardo thinks he is govine, but how does he get along with the rest of the farmily?

    Great post and I also would like to know how he joined the Farmily.

    Monsieur Ricardo is a Star. He is the handsomest guy in the West. Look at that neck, those eyes, those lips ! He works so hard as well, keeping all the cows in line, counting them following them and as Daisy gets pregnant every five minutes, it’s a lot of responsibilities….
    I am glad you did a tribute to him today , he deserves it.

    He certainly is.

    How does he stay so clean and white?

    Ricardo….you are handsome!!! I love geese and even chickens. This year, my husband and I finally got our first batch of chickens. I never realized what a personality a chicken has!!! The more critters I get, the more I don’t like eating meat!!!

    June 4th, 2011 @ 5:29 am

    Awesome! Can we hear what he sounds like someday too? I would love to just hear the sounds of your farmily. Hope I’m not being too pushy Shreve. Ya gotta understand that here in the Chicago burbs the dominant sound is road noise. :(

    Like all birds, Ricardo is convinced he is Ruler of All He Surveys. In this case, he is correct.

    <3 Ricardo. Perfect name. VERY handsome. Perhaps he was a matador in a former life.

    That’s a good-looking gander (not goose, I surmise)– like how he “takes a gander” himself at the camera! LOL.

    Proud and faithful guard of your bovine flock, you will long reign in the hearts of many. I pray something good comes from your unjust and untimely passing. Goose kisses…

    You should write a children’s book about Ricardo and his friends. It would be a great story about acceptance.
