Since my son is in the “why?” stage, we’ve trying to give him honest answers. We explain why we clean the floors, why we don’t eat off them and where food comes from.
Today, he asked me if milk and cheese comes from cows. I said yes.
Then he asked what food we get from horses.
Not really wanting to discuss that other cultures might eat horses, I said, we really don’t eat anything from horses.
So he said, they just make poop then.
Thankfully, and for once, he let the conversation drop after that.
