Hello, Tonka, what’s on your mind?
Nope. Just peppermints.
There’s still grass in the paddock. Why don’t you go graze?
Nope. I’d rather have peppermints.
You got your peppermints during a riding workout. How about a hug instead?
note: that thing on the side of my head is a cochlear implant. You can read more about that here.
Tonka says that I should add this note, too: Although he loves all peppermints, he has just discovered the very, very best. LifeSavers. He says that they’re done in one satisfying crunch, even when he has a bit in his mouth. I like them too. No individual plastic wrappers, so it’s easy to deliver treats from the saddle, and they’re white, so his slobber doesn’t turn a scary pink!
