More bold pursuit of the obvious

More clever than who previously thought?  (Evidently not someone who has spent time with goats!)


http://phys.org/news/2014-03-goats-clever-previously-thought.html

I am sure the goats had a great time retrieving the food. I wonder what they gave them? My goats liked:
bread,
breakfast cereal,
molasses,
fresh new maple leaves,
poison ivy, (cleared our land of it and excreted something in the milk which has given me immunity.)
the bark off of fruit trees which my aunt had bought at great expense,
camera lens covers,
and the pages of library books.

Of course we mostly fed them goat chow.

They may 'prefer to learn on their own' but they do not like to be on their own. They are much more comfortable with a friend/accomplice.

Goats are so much more clever than sheep. They - along with the rats and the nematodes - will inherit the earth.

I have never had the pleasure of making the acquaintance of a goat!

A goat would simply love you!

Do you think so? How nice :) I did fall in love with a cashmere goat at a farm park once. I couldn't stop stroking it, partner had to drag me away :}
