Data approximation

								
/*  This program demonstrates data approximation upon data
 of the use of Frisian stallions in 1952 - 1982, taken from
 "Het Friese hengstenboek" (E. Dijkstra, Kollum).
 remaining data from Auke Meetsma ...

 The graph shows the decline of the Frisian working-horse
 and the resurrection as a coach-horse.
