my horse was very polite and never said nothing
Our son bought my horse a Christmas present of a stall toy treat thing that hangs from a string and is apple flavored.
I hung the toy in a place where the mare could easily get to to play with yet it just hung there for six weeks, no sign of it even being touched.
Upon closer inspection last weekend I realized that it had a plastic cover over the treat, which I had failed to remove.... next day apple treat thing was eaten.
My mare never said a word.
