also horses actually do that, they eat dirt! yup!
btw anyone else had the urge to drink a beer after watching this episode??? please tell me that I wasn't the only one...
I thought everyone did that
I was worried about little girls suddenly wanting booze, but it turns out anypony could be affected like that!
It's one of those things that we don't do in the US (or most other first world countries), but it's got lots of nutrients. And, since horses aren't bound by social norms (like us in first world countries), it's not surprising that they'd eat dirt.
Of course, if we're talking about the magical, colorful ponies as equivalen to real life horses, I'd like to point out that real life horses actually do eat meat sometimes.
But you might want to avoid Lauren Faust if you have her ponies doing something like that. ...I kid, of course.
No, I mean that there are parts of the world where humans eat dirt as we would eat, say, a potato. It's not that they've got specks of dirt in the food they eat that they don't ever notice unless a relatively large clump gets through.
Nonono. They grab some dirt and they eat it.
Cider is only alcoholic when foaming, like in the show.
