Well on Sunday morning I was leisurely tacking Mudpie up, and I started drinking my Snapple Lemon Tea that I'd brought with me. Mudpie's usually an inquisitive guy, so I wasn't surprised when he was sniffing the bottle. But then Mudpie was trying to grab it with his lips. I thought maybe he was just being "mouthy" or whatever, so I held it up under his nose and he grabbed it! He held it in his mouth like a little pro, and looked like he was trying to concentrate, with his ears all sideways. :3 Anywho, I took it out of his mouth because I was afraid he'd break it (it was in a glass bottle), and he didn't want to let it go. I put some in my hand and he licked it up, so (much to her delight) a little girl that keeps her pony at the barn did the same. :) It was all good and fun.
It made me think, though, that he may have been bottle fed as a foal? He's an extremely friendly, confident guy, and he's very comfortable around people. He's pretty charismatic with other horses, too, though, so it's not like he's socially inapt or anything. :)
Has anyone had a bottle-fed baby that's grown up and still "gone" for bottles?
