    Horse Ball

    By cowboy on May 4, 2021

    It's exactly like it looks in the picture, but I didn't feel the quality was as good as it could be. I fear that if it would dent in easily if they pawed at it or tired to bite it. . The hole is pretty good size and the treats fall out very easily when I rolled it around the lot trying to get my horses attention. It takes no effort to get the apple treats to fall out. I would never put feed or anything smaller in it. Just me but I feel like it would all pour out at one time once your horse figures out how to tilt it. However My horse who is always curious about everything has no interest at all in it. I have left it in his lot for days and it just lays in the same spot. I gave it a three because It's exactly like it looks in the picture, but I didn't feel the quality was as good as it could be.

    Rubick cube for a horse

    By Girl123 on Apr 15, 2021

    This is the second one I have purchased .. the previous pink cube is for my mare and the blue is for my gelding depending on the treats placed in each cube determines how much they play with it! During the long days inside has really been good for them. For the cost .. ( which is reasonable)

    Great enrichment toy for horses

    By Stacey on Feb 11, 2021

    Our two horses loved these treat balls. There is enough of a lip at the hole that keeps the sugar free treats from falling right out, so they really had to roll them pretty hard at times to get the treats to pop out. A few times they'd walk away but then would come back and work on them some more because they knew there were still cookies inside. Future plans include some carrot pieces and a handful of timothy pellets. A nice, engaging, and fun treat. Our horses are pasture ponies, but I think these would also work great for a horse that was stuck on stall rest for an injury- would help cut down on boredom for an animal used to walking around all day long in a pasture.

    Horse loved this

    By Giddyap on Mar 12, 2021

    We have a very busy 5-year-old performance AQHA mare. When rain limits her work out she becomes 'busy' in her stall, usually re-arranging her stall mats or chewing on wood. This device had her interested within a minute of filling it with treats and putting in her stall.

    Great toy for my horse

    By vt40racer on Mar 2, 2021

    He figured this out quickly and it kept him occupied while I did some chores. It had hay pellets and a couple of peppermint treats inside. He had to put some effort in but kept at it and the treats spilled out a few at a time. He loved this toy.

    Quarter Horse, TWH and my Pony LOVE it!

    By roksfarm on Jan 24, 2021

    Got this as a Christmas gift for my daughter for her horse. She loved it and couldn’t wait to try it with our horses. We have a 17 yr old Quarter horse mare and a 17 yr old pony and a 11 yr TWH. They all loves it and played with it. We used grain and to watch them take turns kicking it around the field was entertaining for us! Going to buy another as my Quarter horse mare doesn’t like to share.

    Great for Geldings

    By Missy on Mar 23, 2021

    This toy is a hit at the barn. The horses AND the goats play with it non stop. They hold up pretty well my purple one lasted 3 years and now the newer version is even stronger.

    Not a great design

    By Lexi on Jan 8, 2021

    I like the concept, but it does not have the best design. My horse figured out how to roll it around and it kept her busy, but the treats would not fall out. Even I had a hard time removing them. I tried a few different sized and shaped treats, but it didn't make a difference. I ended up cutting the inner lip out of the hole and now it works perfectly. The lip that keeps the treats in the ball was ultimately too effective and the treats wouldn't fall out at all. Unless you're willing to put some work into modifying this toy, don't buy it.

    Great for easy keeper!!!

    By Empathy on Dec 21, 2020

    I have 2 of these and rotate them so one is always clean, full and ready to use. I have 2 geldings. Magic is 30 years old and requires lots of feed to keep his weight. He also takes a long time to eat his meals. My other gelding Antonio stays fat on air. I have to seperate my boys for meals. Magic is fed in my backyard when it's not raining and Antonio will stand and paw at the fence. Tony only gets a balance ration which he inhales. Enter the feeder ball. I fill the ball with his 1 1/2 lbs of ration pellets, toss in a handful of beetpulp pellets and break up a few alfalfa/Timothy cubes and place the ball in the pasture. The cube pieces help to slow the release of the pellets and Antonio will I have 2 of these and rotate them so one is always clean, full and ready to use. I have 2 geldings.

I tried putting some hay inside to slow the release but then I had to remove it with tongs. I would not recommend filling the ball with anything soft or that would attract ants or bugs. Also never leave the ball out in the rain. It could be designed a bit better but as is it works great for my needs. Get 2 so you always have a clean one and pick bright colours if you will be using the ball in a pasture. … more

    Our horses love this

    By Mike99 on Mar 3, 2021

    In the summer, our horses are kept in a dry lot, and this treat ball keeps both our horses busy and involved for many hours. This is our second one and our first one lasted for about 4 years.
