    Five things you didn’t know…

    2 He’s so laid-back that he’s been known to have a rest and fall asleep on the dummy mare on occasion.

    3 He’s a typical teenager. He loves his bed and would happily sleep forever. He needs rocket fuel feed to liven him up.

    5 He gurns when you scratch him.
