Kom heil og sael!

I have a client who desires to have an attacking goose on her device. For
those of you who have never seen a goose go after someone, the goose is
rather a savage beast. It raises it's wings and spreads them fully,
extends it's neck and hisses.

Below is the best blazon I've come up with for the desired device. I have
not conflict-checked it yet, besides noting that there are quite a lot of
argent birds on fieldless backgrounds, which means something will likely
need to be added to the device for appropriate CDs.

Azure, a goose argent, wings elevated and displayed, langued gules and
armed Or.

I am assuming default position of 'close' for the goose, meaning the goose
is in profile. The wings are raised, spread, and flattened on the surface
of the device. Blazoning the tongue implies that the beak is open.

Adding a bordure, chief, or base has been suggested to the client and they
are still considering it.

So would this look like a ticked off goose to you? Is it possible to
blazon the neck extended in some fashion?
