We’ve seen hedgehogs cuddle up with kitties, turtles hang out with a capybara, and even cats (cheetahs) and dogs get along. But this horse and goose duo just might take the cake. Six-year-old Waffles is actually a miniature horse, which explains why he’s barely taller than Hemingway the goose. Hemingway helped calm Waffles when he was sick, and now the two never want to be apart.

*Wee ones: *If Waffles the mini-horse has 4 legs and Hemingway the goose has 2, who has more?

*Little kids: *Mini-horses are normally 3 feet tall at their shoulder. Are you taller or shorter than that? Grab a measuring tape and find out! *Bonus: *If Hemingway stands on Waffles’ head and each friend is 3 feet tall, will that whole stack stand taller than you? By how much?

*Big kids: *If Waffles eats 8 waffles for breakfast and Hemingway has 1/4 of that amount for himself, how many waffles does Hemingway have? *Bonus: *If Hemingway honks 3 times every 15 minutes and Waffles whinnies 6 times every 24 minutes, how many more whinnies than honks will you hear in 4 hours?

Answers:

*Wee ones: *Waffles has more legs.

*Little kids: *Different for everyone…subtract 36 inches from your height, or your height from 36 inches. *Bonus: *Different for everyone again, but that goose’s head is probably higher up than yours! Subtract your height in feet from 6 feet, or for big kids and grownups, take 6 feet from your height.

*Big kids: *2 waffles, because 8 / 4 = 2. *Bonus: *12 more whinnies than honks. Hemingway honks once every 5 minutes, while Waffles whinnies once every 4 minutes. That makes 15 whinnies to 12 honks in each hour, and 3 more whinnies x 4 hours = 12 more whinnies.
