Hello there! Can you help out with this "conundrum"? Which option is the right one? There are fewer / less than 50 horses left on the farm. Less is used for uncountable nouns and adjectives and adverbs. Fewer is used for countable nouns. For me, fewer would be the right answer. However, "less" doesn´t sound so badly here because I´ve heard "less people". I googled it to obtain some insight and the result was surprising!
