I ordered a 25" jolly ball!

So, I ordered a 25" jolly ball as I have two horses who have smaller ones in their stalls and they love them. I figured they would enjoy one in their pasture as well. Has anyone had problems with theses bursting easily or horses injuring themselves on them?

I bought one a few years ago the horse it was for had it destroyed in 24 hours time. Was out in his corral with him never bought another one.He is hard on stuff he plays with sticks and his rubber feed pan.

Our horses do love them but they do not last forever.

My 19 month old colt has 4 of them! (I bought him two and he inherited two from a friend after her horses quite playing with toys). He loves them! He's played with them since he was about 6 months old and his mother will pick them up and play with them too.

He is hard on his toys, he is always chewing and pawing on them and slinging them around and the jolly balls have help up no problem! Almost every day I have to go retrieve 3-4 jolly balls from outside his pen because he picks them up and swings them and then lets go- sending them sailing outside the fence.

They have a hole in them that lets the air go in and out, so you don't have to sorry about them deflating. They generally pop right back into the proper shape. I have occasionally had one get flattened and I've had to take my hands and get it popped back out, but that hasn't happened in months.

He has two like this:

And two like this (which I believe are marketed for large dogs):

He like the dog version the best! I even put ropes on the other two, but the ones with the ropes through the center are the ones I find outside the fence most often.

I thought he would out-grow them, and maybe he will, but right now he is 19 months and plays with them every day. And his 18 yr old mother will sometimes pick them up too.

If the photo shows up, here he is playing with one in the snow.

I should have gotten one years ago even for my older horses. I used to have an Arabian that liked to play with things. He would have loved a jolly ball.

I attempted to get my boy to play with it, failed so then I threw it in the pen for the other horses.

...they play horsey volleyball with the other horses in the paddock next to them lol

See this is not the normal jolly ball that is pretty indestructable, they have those in their stalls and every morning I have to find where in the barn they have ended up at to put them back in the stalls.
This is the same ones they have in their stalls, just the 4 or 6 inch version

This thing is 25" and a blow up rubber one. I know they will explode eventually but am hoping to have it last at least some time. I got it pretty cheap so as long as it doesn't cost more than what I paid to replace it I won't be two worried if it lasts a few months or longer.

Hey, I got a good Jollyball story. We had a small one and then the dogs got it and chewed the handle off. We left it outside. My wife and I took a hike off our property and found it about a 1/2 mile away surrounded by Coyote tracks!!! The **** coyotes grabbed it!
