"Mom, how do you know if our horse is a boy or girl horse?"

Addy asked today. Her horse is the neighbor's horse and lives in the pasture behind her house. "Oh Boy," I thought to myself, "How in the world am I supposed to answer that question in a manner that is appropriate for this little 5 year-old girl of mine." Well, I didn't even have to come up with some fabulous mom answer to avoid the boy vs. girl anatomy comment.

After just a moment of reflection, she answered her question, "It's a she horse because it has brown eye lashes." I giggled. Perfect! Never thought of it this way but this will work for now. Oh, the innocence of youth.
