I bought one for my horses and they nosed it around for a bit and then never touched it again. My brother's black lab, on the other hand, loved it. She plays with that thing constantly. Oh well, at least something plays with it and it wasn't a waste of money. :)

I bought one for Woody, but he never uses it. My dog loves it, though.

I love my dirty, sweaty horse more then any boy!
He may knock a pole but he'll never break my heart.

My grandma's QH had a hard plastic apple shaped ball on a rope that he positively mangled (along with several buckets, a tube steel hayrack, and a few boards in his stall) over a couple of years. My sister's QH has a legit Jolly Ball hanging in his stall, mainly as a marker to keep him from pooping in his water (butt hits ball, doesn't come close enough for precision aim, lol), but he gives it a smack every now and again. My first horse was afraid of one, he just stood in his stall quivering. I might get one for Scout before winter. He's curious, playful, and absolutely fearless, I think he'll enjoy one, especially during the time he's "snowed in."

A stubborn horse walks behind you, an impatient one in front of you, but a noble companion walks beside you ~ Unknown

I have seen a few horses use them but not much. Dogs LOVE them though!

Our mares only nose it around a bit, too. They do, however, like it if you go out and play with them by kicking/throwing it around...then they'll run after it/kick it/etc. I guess it's a 'family game' to them.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
