Mr Spaghetti Legs enjoys trying to eat a hoof. I say ‘trying’, because he has so few teeth left, that it is really hard work.
He gnawed away at this hoof for about half an hour. Then, exhausted by his efforts, he fell asleep with it between his paws!
Little Monkey has no such problem, having a full set of strong teeth.
She’s also very good at holding the hoof between her paws for extra grip. No way she was going to fall asleep any time soon!
Because she is such a Little Monkey, I have to sit there and watch them the whole time with their hooves. LM will ‘assimilate’ all the hooves if I’m not around. Once SL had had enough, I removed both hooves, till the next supervised chewing session.
