One of my blogger friends, posted about giving treats to her horses, and how much they enjoy them. She talked about the way they crunched them down, and the wonderful sound of happy horses eating something they love. Well, that isn't the case when it comes to Tonka.... he never crunches anything... Tonka is a "sucker". Give him almost anything, and instead of chewing it, his will tuck it up in his cheek and suck on it for "hours". Often times, he half closes his eyes, and almost rocks in position as he happily sucks on his treat. Often times, big drips of drool hang for his mouth (I know... kind of yucky!!)... and he can make almost anything last!!! I don't know why he does this, I wonder if he was not properly weaned, or weaned too young... or maybe he just enjoys special things and has decided that when they come his way.... make the most of it.. either way... he is a very happy boy when treats are handed out, and certainly has a "reputation" in the barn of being the "sucky boy!!!"
