Questions & Answers

6 Customer Questions

is this a soft or hard "ball" for dogs to play with or can they pop this with their teeth?
Answer by ChewySep 28, 2020
This ball feeder for horses is designed to dispense treats, pellets or grain as it is rolled around.

How much, in cups, does this feeder hold?
Answer by ChewyDec 12, 2022
The manufacturer does not have a cup capacity for this ball feeder but this is a 9 inch ball feeder, designed for horses so it will hold a good amount.

Anyone use this in a stall? If so, does it get filled up with shavings as the horse pushes it around?
Answer by ChewyJan 21, 2022
We have not had anyone complain about these filling with shavings!

Does this come with a funnel or anything to help fill it?
Answer by ChewyDec 24, 2021
This feeder doesn't include a funnel.

too hard to clean

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.

Too difficult

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.

Definitely worth the investment

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.

Hours of enjoyment

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!

PERFECT toy for our horses!

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.

Equine fun!

This was a gift to help relieve boredom. It took our mule about a day to figure out what it was all about. She now nudges the ball around with her nose and eats the trail of treats that fall out

My horses absolutely love it and it’s great for the paddock with some pellets in it ;)

A toy to add interest to my horses' afternoons

I put a scoop of pellets in this ball, then toss it in where my four minis are wandering around. Even the senior knows what it it. The funny thing is now one of them pushes it out under the gate when it is empty. Love the choice of colors.

noisy ball

I love this and my horses love it. I put saddle snacks in it and some that are larges to make it harder for the treats to fall out. It is easy to put the treats in and unfortunately the treats come out easy as well, hence the reason I put larger ones and different shape ones in it to make it harder. The horses love it but it is pretty loud when they are rolling it around rattling the treats in it.

Wouldn't buy again, but it's ok.

Easy to fill. Seems to be well constructed, but; rather light weight, so he tosses it out of the tub that contains his treat ball so the pellets aren't scattered all over the ground. i prefer he keep it in the tub, so the pellets aren't on the ground, reducing the risk of dirt intake if he has to pick the pellets off the ground. his older, different brand, treat ball stays in the tub.
