    C. Corralled (in an enclosure with a shelter or stable)
    D. Out in the day, in a stable at night
    E. Out in the day, in a corral at night

    2. Do you have any methods that you use/have used to prevent boredom in your horse(s)? If so, How? Please choose the ways below...

    A. Likit licks or other mineral/salt licks
    B. Hiding treats in hay (such as apples or carrots etc.)
    C. Hanging things from the roof of the stable, if so, what? (state with answer)
    D. Putting apples etc. in the water troughs
    E. Jolly Ball
    F. Other balls such as footballs

    I would love to try a likit, but despite my pestering (emails etc to the company) they won't sell them in NZ yet. I just choose cheap, unflavoured licks from a local farming supply store.

    Good luck with your essay if you haven't already completed it!

    1. B for both of my horses (although my mare comes in at night in the winter sometimes due to the cold and her age)

    2. A & E: E only because it's out in the field so they might play with it and I not notice

    3. A & B: my horses like them and use them but more as a dietary supplement then as a boredom reliever.
