I'm sure the horse that lives in the field behind out garden has been helping himself over the fence...

hehe no, I'm not in the habit of stealing runner beans but it sounds perfectly feasible to me that dobbins would! wink

I wouldn't like to ride it afterwards that's all. Where do you think the phrase 'full of beans' comes from? grin

I don't know about runner beans, but my TB likes bananas and pineapples (I have to walk through their yard to reach compost heap in field and get mugged). Funnily enough sturdy Welshie doesn't like exotic stuff like that although he is a bit like a locust in that he can strip a field bare in seconds!

Our sturdy welshie didn't like bananas until he saw dhorse and the shetland tucking in and all of a sudden he wants them too. Odd that!
Haven't tried pineapple but they all love nectarines (I take the stone out) and dshetland does sweet little whickers and holds up her hoof for more.
