B- Hey Ranger! Come on over! TREAT!!!
R- Hello Beel.
B- Here you go buddy, have a carrot.
B- Now Ranger, you love carrots. Take this.
R- Nope. They bite.
B- Carrots do not bite. They are tasty vegetables. Not prone to attacking horses.
R- They bite you.
B- Ranger, our guest told me what happened. She said she was trying to give you a carrot and you were standing in the mud, leaning against the metal feeder. And she bumped the hot-wire. And you got a shock when you touched the carrot. It WASN'T the carrot biting you!
B- Juanita says you will take one from her sometimes, and then think better of it and back away and not take any more.
R- I forget. Then I remember. Not safe. They bite.
B- Juanita says you will take them from her if she goes into the pen with you.
R- They do not bite in here.
B- Okay, I'll climb in and give you a couple. Here you go. You are one odd duck, buddy.
R- Bite me.
