    Unhappy Heading of a FCE lesson

    Hi, The title of a lesson in a FCE book I am using is "Hold the Front Hoof" and it refers to how the experience of a young journalist at a French local newspaper turned into a crash course in farming (due to a university mistake). I would like to know if this expression is an idiom (I haven`t found it in dictionaries) or just literal (farming). Thanks!

    There is a newspaper idiom "Hold the front page". I think the writer of this text book is being too clever by half by adapting the phrase to "Hold the front hoof" [ combining both the journalism aspect and the livestock aspect]
