Mine has teeth marks on the handle from when the neighbor dog stole it! I was like, who the heck would come way out here and steal a friggin Jolly ball. A few months later my neighbor was at the door apologizing, lol.

Have had some that like them, but I have bought 3 now...and the hooha they tell you about how it "keeps shape" is a lie, they get squashed and you can't get them back to shape.

My horse loves his Jolly ball. He plays with it frequently in his stall. One of his favorite games is trying to throw it to his friends and is successful more often than I like to admit. My husband and I make friendly bets on whether it will be in his stall or not. I think a lot depends on your horse's personality.

That reminds of early this year! He threw his ball out and it went MIA for months. One day, the BM laughingly told me her husband fished it out of the pond out front! I guess one of the boarder's dogs likes them, too. I almost bought a new one at Equine Affaire that very next weekend.

I had a few for my horses. My dogs played with them...that's about it.

But I have cones I use for training, and they are ALWAYS moved. My moms gelding is the culperate. I catch them in his mouth all the time. Same with my poles I made. They are always knocked over. Or 55 gallon barrels, always rolled out of the pasture.

Didn't read all the posts....
We have a jolly ball from when my mare was on stall/pen rest.
We have it out now with 2 or 3 horses, no one messes with it at all. The only fun I have seen it have is when the coyotes stole it. I found it a few hundred yards up the hill with bite marks in the grippy part.
A toy my mare seems to enjoy is a milk jug without the lid with a bit of grain in it. When I gave her those in the evening, they were smashed and empty by morning. I assume one could fashion something to hang from the ceiling of a stall as well with a gallon jug with holes in the bottom.

I put one on with my yearling filly a few years ago and I never saw her play with. I came in one day and her foot was stuck in the handle! Not sure how she manage that but we had to cut the handle off to get her free from it.

After 4 months of seeing it, my 2 year old is still terrified of the jolly ball in his neighbor's paddock. Occasionally it'll roll into my horse's paddock and he'll then stay at the opposite side until someone retrieves it.

Lol! Poor boy, hopefully that nasty horse-eating jolly ball will stay in the right paddock.

All three of mine are extremely curious and mischievous (especially the minis!!) so we'll see what happens. As I've mentioned before even if they only play with it when I'm out there with them, that's fine.

I got a giant one(like a yoga ball) for the boys. They did not like it! They'd snort at it, sniff it a little bit, then accidentally knock it and flip their lid. I maaay have kicked it at them a couple times. Then I got a normal one for Henny and he never touched it. I will tell you who does like jolly balls though. PIGS. I got a small dog one for my show pigs and they'd sit there and chew and throw them for hours. That, and shoes, and a bowling ball. Whatever they could get their little snouts on.
