You can lead a horse to water

You Can Lead a Horse to Water

‘You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink.’

I tried this out on Wednesday when I led one to the sink.

My dad went really crazy, lassoed it with a rope.

It’s true about the horse though for it only ate the soap.


This is a very silly proverb!🐎.

Can you guess what it means?
