It’s all Clover

The chance of finding a four leaf clover are slim.  Supposedly, the statistics show about 1 in 10,000 which is, relatively, better than winning most lotteries.  We thought we’d even up the odds to find our own four leaf clover.

Between 1913 and 1917, Edmund S. Conklin handed out a questionnaire asking if people believed 4 leaf clover is lucky.  A little over ¼ of college students believed Four Leaf Clovers are lucky which makes this superstition among the top two superstitions.

In 2008, a Korean team developed Jeju Lucky-1; a strain of clover that produces 4 leaves 60 percent of the time.  Our lucky has improved.  We can now have four leaf clover 60 percent of the time.  Our cow was pleased as well.

A Horse of a Feeling

An old wives tale expresses that horses can feel human emotion even before the human recognizes the emotion they are feeling.  As “horse people”, we tend to agree.  Horses can be very in tune with our body language although we aren’t convinced about the “before the human recognizes the emotion they are feeling” part.
