Question

Foal weight at birth is an indicator of health, so it is of interest to breeders of thoroughbred horses. Is foal weight related to the weight of the mare (mother)? The accompanying data are from the paper “Suckling Behaviour Does Not Measure Milk Intake in Horses” (Animal Behaviour [1999]: 673–678):
The correlation coefficient for these data is 0.001. Construct a scatterplot of these data and then write a few sentences describing the relationship between mare weight and foal weight that refer both to the value of the correlation coefficient and the scatterplot.
