The order arrived quickly and was as described. I love it but the intended recipient, our only pony, was not as enthused. Are was much more excited about finding ways to get past the fences. The horses seemed to react the same...IN all fairness to the p product, our. herd has several beautiful pastures and each other to keep them occupied. Toys are not as big of a deal. Maybe some day..not sure about recommending it...would really depend on the horse/pony.
This is my pony’s absolute favorite thing ever. The first time I gave it to him he couldn’t figure out that he was supposed to roll it and kept trying to break into it with his teeth, so I had to show him a bit before he got the hang of it. Now every time I fill it with treats he has a blast kicking it around and rolling it with his nose and it seems to last a good while without being too difficult that it’d frustrate him. I’ve been told my other boarders at my barn that they’ve seen him playing with it at all hours of the day. I even bring it to shows so he has something fun to do in his stall. It seems to hold up well- I had one for a year or so and only replaced it because it disappeared. They fade in the sun but that’s about it. Plastic is pretty tough.
My mom stupidly got this for my dog… he got his mouth stuck in it and it’s SHARP plastic and it ripped his gums and chin. I know it’s not for dogs but still… make a toy that won’t HURT an animal… very very disappointed in this. My poor boys thankfully okay but he was hurt pretty badly from this
This treat ball is ideal for my playful horse who now is alone after losing his pasture buddy. It takes him time to push it around but he always gets every last treat out! I recommend not leaving it outside if it's going to rain,just so it'll stay dry inside of it
My horse played with this for hours and would even roll it out of her pasture. The problem is that it’s impossible to clean. If it ends up getting water in it, then the ball has to sit out in the sun for hours for it to dry. The hole is not big enough to reach inside the ball and thoroughly clean it. I reached out to the company about cleaning instructions but they didn’t have any. I recommended a products adaption for cleaning. If this product was able to be cleaned I would give it 5 stars but unfortunately in hot humid weather it easily molds.
My gelding loved this treat ball - whilst it lasted. After a week in his stall, it got dented and now has dangerous, sharp edges around the opening, making it unsuitable for use. I don't recommend this product as it is too expensive to be disposable.
I got this for my goats, but I ended wasting food. There is a lip around the inside of the whole where the food comes out, which makes it extremely difficult to get food out at all. Even I could not get it out easily for them. It is also pretty much impossible to clean out.
My guys are on a dry lot. Its built lighter than it looks. I figured this would entertain them and act as a slow feeder. They figured out how to work the ball fairly quickly. Only thing is that I hoped it would have a way to slow the flow.
My boy, Thor, loves this. It stimulates his foraging instinct as well as gives him an extra toy to occupy his time while I'm away. Every day I go out there and I have to fish it out of a hole or from being wedged under a fence. I have not seen him but I know he's rolling it all over the place. Sometimes I go out there and there are still treats in it so I know it is challenging for him. Good purchase!
Ordered as a toy for our horses to entertain them out in their pasture. After adding few treats and a couple handfuls, they were absolutely obsessed. Watching them play and figure out how to get the treats out is so much fun! I'll most likely have to order a second one, so each horse could have their own.
