I have never given my horses stall toys. I have seen them around but sort of categorized them as frufru things. I saw myself spending lots of money for this toy to have my horse ignore it. In part because most of my horses are in a run in shed situations within small groups. They can spend their days and night wondering around socializing, eating grass and hay.
Now, my horse Harry is staying in a stall at night. He is spending the night in the stall because if out with his group he will chase the mares around and keep them away from the hay. This has lead to him stall walking at night. Harry's personality is this unique combination of equine ADHD and incredible insecurity. He spends a section of his day chasing the mares around just because he can. The mares range in age from 28 to 4 and all are wimps. He is just a bad leader. I think at night he just gets bored and paces around. I can't leave them him out a night because if left to his own devices he will chase them around all night. The mares will all sit nicely around, eat their hay and share grain. Its easier to stall one then to stall three.
I am just wondering if people have stall toys? If so which ones? What are your opinions on toys?
