In horse training, horses DO follow carrots... only, there's people holding the carrots. ;)

I think duo prepares you for the situations you never thought you'd be prepared for. Next time we're in Italy and we see a horse following a carrot, I will remember my training

We say donkey in CR :))


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tony61164

Why would the horse follow the donkey???


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IanWitham1

When a horse loves a donkey very much, he follows her and she gives birth to a hinny.

Just me that is laughing imagining this situation?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Doctor_DraX

You hold a carrot on a string while riding the horse and it will follow.

This is a local saying , like "sleeps with the fishes"...?

Since I'm Also Learning Welsh, I Was Tempted To Say "The Horse Follows The Moron"! ("Moron" Is Welsh For "Carrots"!)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MattOrsie

Where is the carrot going, I wonder.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/UnicornFafa

The carrot master


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tuxfriend

Maybe ants move the carrot. Then Luis the spider arrives, eats the ants, hence saves the day and the horse a carrot. ;-)

That carrot knows that one should not follow, but be followed
