Easy & Cheap Stall Toy!

I guarantee you have the supplies to make this in your house RIGHT NOW!! If you don't, it will cost you less than $5 and 5 minutes to make yourself!

What you will need:

Easy Peasy! You will need an apple, rope (you could even use an old lead rope you have lying around) and a knife.


Step 1:

Wash and cut the centre out of the apple (big enough to thread your rope through)

Step 2:

Thread the rope through the apple.

Step 3:

Tie a knot at the end to keep the apple from falling off.

Step 4:
Secure the rope to the ceiling or a bar in your horse's stall.

There you have it!! Cheap AND Easy! And guess what, it will cost you less than most marketed stall toys!

So simple... so fun. I'm thinking bailing twine. I've got lots of that

I know I'd be laughing so hard nothing would get done. I drilled half a dozen 1/2" holes in a food grade plastic gallon bottle. Half filled it with pellets, capped it tightly and tossed it into the snow. Hilarious, one even tried to kill it. Kept them amused for about 3 hrs. I like the apple idea.

I am a pretty creative person but something that simple never crossed my mind!!! My horse had an accident and has lost vision in her right eye , and has since been on stall rest.....so I've been doing everything to entertain her! And she looooves apples so this is perfect and outside of the vet bills theres not alot of $$$$ left over for toys Thanks so Much!!!!

Well does she bob? My QH gelding at shows and summer I put apples in his water and he's entertained for a while. I knew some people with a 18.3hh Clyd that had a dog squeaky toy. And loved it.

Oh I bet Comic would bob. He puts his whole muzzle in the water and blows bubbles. Strange but true. Another reason why the name Comic fits him.
