Default How to pack a spade bit?

I have been having an interesting discussion with a local horseman recently. What does it take for a horse to properly "pack" a spade bit? Does it mean he leaves it in hanging balance? Or does he pick it up and carry it? Does he primarily use his tongue to do this? If he picks up the bit doesn't this change the angle at which the mouth piece will be hanging? Wondering your thoughts on the discussion, how do you know when your horse is "packing" the bit well?
