When my previous horse was a foal, she never played with her Jolly Ball. She just pooped on it... Every time :/

Our Jolly ball sits in our ring, lonely and unloved. Every once and a while one of the mares will nose it around for a minute, but that's about it. Even our colt who loves to mouth everything has no interest in it.

It belongs on the Island of Misfit toys!!! NO toy should be lonely and unloved.

Same here, I was wondering what I could do to maybe teach them to play with it or make it interesting. Any tips??

Play with it with them. Make them kick it under saddle with their front legs, push it, roll it. They might not understand that they can interact with it.

I was thinking maybe smearing some molasses or something on it if they didn't seem interested... though they would probably just lick it all off and then ignore it again :P

Even if they only play with it while I'm interacting with them, it could still be fun - they thought eating the rubber grips off my wheelbarrow was awesome :P

BTW, if you want to amuse our mares, just take a bucket of brushes, combs, and hoof picks of different colors into the pasture. In less than 10 minutes they will carried and scattered all over everywhere. I haven't been able to get them to put their toys away when they're done, though.

C'Mon MY rubber grips were gone a LONG time ago!
I say pick it up and let her sniff it, then bounce it on the ground and work towards softly bouncing it off of her shoulder and legs, they roll it away from her and see if she follows it. Like I said, MY 2 geldings learned from the dogs!!

I had one given to me because a barn mate had one and her horse ignored it. Well my horses did nothing with it either, so now my dog enjoys playing fetch with it.
