The Miracle Food.
|Fun:|| (2.27) |
|Difficulty:|| (1.29) |
For centuries now, the English horse has had this as part of his feed.
The English say that this is why their horses are best of the breed.
The Scotsman, on the other hand, has eaten the stuff himself.
It often staved off starvation when there was nothing else on the shelf.
The English say this is the reason their horses are best, but then,
The Scots give the very same reason for breeding the best of men.
Tell me now, what is this stuff of various and mighty powers
That makes both sides declare that 'theirs' are inferior to 'ours'?
Answer:Oats. The mighty grain. It promotes stalwart hearts in men and horses.

|I figured it would be some kind of grain, but since I'm not english and have no clue what they say about their horses or the scots about their men, it was a little confusing.|
