"1.In this experiment I will see if sheep can identify and remember human faces from photographic portraits. 2. I became interested in this project because I show sheep in 4-H (it is one of my favorite things to do), and I also love animals. 3. The results for this experiment showed that sheep are able to recognize and also remember human faces from photographs. 4. This experiment will help people see if their sheep actually recognize them. Another reason my project is important is it may help with the research of Alzheimer Disease. "
