Raising sons on a farm solved a lot of problems in explaining answers to questions they did not yet have. Breeding horses is a violent and dangerous activity. Once, while taking a mare back home, my 12yo son asked, "Dad, do people scream & bite & kick when they breed?" I responded, "They really shouldn't if they do it right." After he thought about that a while, we were able to talk about love and caring being so important in human relationships of the "breeding" nature. Thanks for the post.
