Ah, your horse obviously doesn't have the "rubber lips" that can stretch past the shank of his bit to the yummy leather below.
Leo (my horse I mentioned) could reach just about anything and then will snatch his face away and blink at you-it was a game to him. He loved to suck as much rein or lead rope in and gum it all up and spit it back out. Very clever horse. He also loved to drink coke and would purposly knock over any can to see if it has some of that sugar water in it...he was even courteous enough to set upright again when he was done. Leaving us to wonder "who drank my pop, and why is the trailer fender so sticky?" LOL
Another fav. Trick was to sidle up next to my mom (he only did this to her) and if she had a hooded jacket with strings..he would quickly snatch the string and zip it out of the hood and run a few feet, stop and swing it in circles. :roll: He never did it with the rest of the family, so something about HER strings were fun. That horse was (still is-Mom still has him) a hoot.
