Feeding the Goat
In this picture Mabel is demonstrating to her two grandmothers how to feed the goat at The Little Farm, in Berkley's Tilden Regional Park, a stalk of celery. This was during a visit from her paternal grandmother--whom she calls her Nooe, or more often, Noh-Noh--from North Carolina. The Little Farm is one of toddler Mabel's favorite places and so of course she had to show it to her Noh-Noh. You can feed the goats and cows and sheep and pigs and poultry the two healthful and virtually calorie-free foods: celery and lettuce. Considering how many little kids are plying these creatures to eat all day long, and considering that as far as we can tell farm animals have no appetite control whatsoever, this seems to be an excellent ruling on the part of the powers that be.
