July poll results

Here are the results of the July poll, which asked the question, "Which is your favorite animal from Diana Gabaldon's books?"
  • 55.25% - Rollo
  • 11.62% - Adso
  • 11.62% - Clarence, the mule
  • 7.17% - The White Sow
  • 7.17% - Bouton
  • 3.58% - Donas
  • 0.72% - Lucas, the Friesian stallion
  • 0.56% - Gideon
  • 0.56% - Ping An, the pelican
  • 0.40% - Hiram, the goat
  • 0.16% - I'm new to OUTLANDER and haven't encountered any of these animals yet.
  • 1.19% - Other
There were 1256 responses to this month's poll. I've been featuring these monthly polls on Outlandish Observations since 2008, and I have to say, this has been one of the most competitive and most entertaining polls I've ever done.

True, the first-place winner was never in doubt (Rollo has a LOT of fans!), but what surprised me was how close the race for second place turned out to be. Clarence and Adso were only a couple of votes apart the entire time the poll was running, and I think it's fitting that the wee cheetie and the gregarious mule ended up tied for second place.

Thanks very much to everyone who participated!

Please take a moment to vote in the August poll, which asks the question, "Which NEW character are you most looking forward to seeing in OUTLANDER Season 3?" Thanks!
