Jollyball!!

I just purchased a jollyball today and I was wondering if I could keep it out in the snow.. or if that would be a bad idea and it would crack/shatter. Do you think it could withstand North Dakota weather???

The jolly ball my horses have stayed outside last winter during 3 blizzards... buried in up to 4' of snow at times. The only thing that has ever damaged it is my Jack Russell Terrier ;)

Haha, so I'm guessing I could leave it out there :)
But do they actually play with it?? I'm going to test it out tomorrow.. but I've seen youtube videos where the horses go crazy with them, lol.
Thanks for the help

My 5 month old foal loves his. His mom has picked it up once or twice, but the baby is the only one that really plays with it. It hasn't been through a snowy winter yet.

Do you just leave it out there, and eventually they will pick it up and play with it, or did you hold it up to him because I tried with my horses and the one kinda got freaked out about it and backed away while the other one kinda nibbled on the handle but she wouldn't take it. What did yours do with it?

One of my horses just started backing away from it while the other kinda nibbled on the handle, so we'll see what they do with it :)

My horses could care less about it - it's definitely just a dog toy now ;)

I just set it out there and let them investigate it themselves. Baby is fearless! Mom isn't afraid of it either though, and now when I am cleaning the pen, I can toss it from one side to the other to get it out of the way and the horses don't flinch anymore when it hits and bounces. I have an old cotton lead rope (minus the snap) on mine because I used to have it tied up to the fence. But they use it more I think laying around on the ground. Or at least I throw it to one side and and the next morning find it at the other end of the pen, so they must be playing with it at night. You could try tying a length of old lead rope to the handle. My guys pick it up by the rope and swing it around.

i guess it could also be a good thing for them to get used to stuff coming towards them/past them so they won't be so spooky..
I'll set it out there tomorrow and hope for the best :)
Thanks for the help/advice!!
