Why should it be nonsense? Doubtlessly, there are many fine horses who work as artists and architects in Russia.

It's not a nonsense! In spain, we have what we call Beat the Turtle tournaments and only ducks are allowed!

No just kidding. Of course those weird surrealistic sentences are there on purpose. It's, like I call it in Belgium, un "moyen mnemotechnique" to remember the words, a sort of "way to remember words" (here, by having a strange sentence that you will definitely not forget so fast).

Well it made me laugh. I have been practicing my listening by translating with eyes closed and not using the given words (it gives you a clue when you see them) and I played this three or four times before I finally accepted there was nothing else the woman could possibly have been saying. Horse architecture at its very best. And it's given me a pun. Whose house did the female horse design? Your neighbour's ... Whohahaha. Hopefully I won't be banned from Duolingo for such a terrible joke... :-)

So the Russian horse designs houses, where the Portuguese horse drinks juice and the German horse eats 'holy potatoes'. Makes me wonder what the horses in other Duolingo languages can do! I like this amazing Duolingo world, in which I learn to say I am a blue apple!

Making and understanding jokes is a very important part of interacting with people. There's nothing more useful in getting strangers to warm up to you than to make them laugh. So, this sentence is actually more useful and important than many of the other exercises. I wish there were more of them.
