Who Loves You, Baby?

Oct

SCIENCE PROJECT


Question: If I go into the goat yard without any cookies, which, if any, animal will continue to adore me despite my lack of treats?

Hypothesis: After they finish eating my hair, none of them.

Materials: Goats, donkeys, chickens, empty pockets.

Procedure: Enter the goat yard.

Walk back and forth repeatedly to see who, if anyone, continues to pay attention to me even though I have no cookies.










Data Analysis: No matter how many times I walked back and forth, yes, you know it! You see the proof! CLOVER!!!

Conclusion: She loves me. She really really loves me!

Clover and the Fair Weather Friends Gang (after I went back and got the cookies):



Clover: “Remember, I’m the best!”

    Clover is just more persistent and is willing to spend the time to lay on a guilt trip. That girl is messing with your mind. Or she likes you.

    That picture 3rd from the bottom, is the cutest thing ever, I can see that on some sort of greeting card–maybe that is an idea, a line of greeting cards featuring you animals.

    P.S. Think the photos of the “Fair Weather Friends Gang” would be a GREAT greeting card… so would the one with the tongue sticking out!!!

    I do think Clover loves you. However, I also think she’s very smart and knew you were conducting an experiment and you would eventually deliver the goods. She deduced that by showing her affection she’d get the BIGGEST cookie. And I’m wondering….did she? (Or maybe SHE was conducting her own human experiment at the same time!!! :bugeyed: )

    I thought this was going to be an attempt to bribe GB. Though she’s probably too young to be tempted by solid foods.

    LOL, love the funny goat faces! I know how you feel though. Chickens and horses are the same way. My dog always loves me though. Only a dog loves to be petted with your foot!

    Hey Suzanne, Im having a really hard time with your site this evening. It takes forever and a day to load, and then all of the images don’t show. I don’t think it’s my computer, because I’ve been to other sites, read my email, etc. and have had no problems. Just thought I’d let you know in case something is wrong.

    I’m sorry, Yvonne! I think it was just a server glitch. It seems like it’s better now.

    Thank you, Suzanne. I don’t have my own site or know much about how this stuff works, but I do know servers can be the problem….how it all works blows my mind! Thanks again, I visit this site multiple times when I come home from work in the evening and look forward to it..don’t ever stop what you do, you inspire many in so many ways!

    I just showed this to my husband and when he saw the first photo of the whole gang, he said “that’s a REALLY good picture of all the goats!” I agree – it’s definitely frame-worthy. :) (My husband really likes goats – he’s already made me promise to get goats when we have our little farm someday!)

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
