Yesterday Luk Chai enjoyed a massive iceblock in the barn with mum Thong Dee. The bucket-sized iceblock filled with treats was like a massive paddle pop with a bamboo stick poking out the end for Thong Dee to pick up with her trunk.
The iceblock was way too big for Luk Chai to play with and Thong Dee picked it up with her trunk and dropped it on the floor to break it in to little pieces. Luk Chai went over to investigate, examining the cold slippery chunks with his feet and trunk whilst mum quickly devoured the treats of apples, peanuts and cane sugar.
Luk Chai copied mum and used his trunk to pop a few pieces of ice in to his mouth.
