Andy, The Goose Who Wore Sneakers

In 1988, Gene Fleming, a farmer and livestock equipment manufacturer from Hastings, Nebraska, was visiting his sister-in-law’s farm in Harvard, Nebraska, when he noticed a two-year-old goose with no feet, stumbling around on stumps trying to keep up with his fellow geese. Fleming took pity on him, took the goose home and named him Andy.

Fleming was an inventor who made a fortune manufacturing odd solutions to animal needs. Back in 1959, when he learned that cows had a habit of scratching themselves on any rough surface until their skins ripped open, Fleming invented a cow scratcher, which not only relieved itches but also sprayed them with bug repellent. It worked great, and he made hundreds of thousands of them.
