Some horses play with things, others don't. I bought my gelding a Likit and a Jolly Ball, and he didn't really give a second look to either... haha. Some horses love playing with them though.
If your horse will play with things like that, great! The milk jug is a good idea, I've seen a lot of horses enjoy that.
If your horse doesn't play with its toys, I would suggest keeping her happy with some grass hay, or hay that is not very rich, 24/7 to keep her doing something.
I'm sorry to hear about the injury... I just went through that with my gelding - 3 months' stall rest.. yay.
If your horse starts getting antsy, I found an oral calmer that really did work wonders with Denny, it's called Equine Chill, and it's made by Omega Alpha. It helped take the edge off. (Denny's an OTTB)
Best of luck.
