A farmer had two children, a son and a daughter. The daughter wanted to learn to grow hay, and the son wanted to learn to raise horses.
At a certain time, the daughter asked the farmer, “Will you show me how to plant and grow and harvest hay?” The farmer quickly agreed.
A little later, the son asked the farmer, “Will you show me how to raise horses?”
“Why do you want to raise horses?” the farmer asked.
“To ride them like the wind,” the son answered.
“There is nothing about raising horses that I can add to what you know already,” the farmer said.
A year later, the son came to the farmer and said, “My horses are dying from hunger. How can I feed them?’
“Ask your sister,” the farmer said.
