The farmer will then refill the wagon with 500 carrots and deliver 200 to the market, as the horse will eat 200 on the way to the market and still need 100 to eat to get back to the original drop-off point. Then the original 300 carrots will be loaded on the wagon, the horse will eat 100 on the way to the market and deliver 200 in the second load for a total of 400 carrots delivered to the market.
