    What happens when a horse LOVES treats.....

    So I don't feed my horse treats to often and if I do she gets them in her feeder or she will be biting at your hand and pockets. My show group and I went to this huge tack store, and they bought those like-it balls. The kinds with grains and seeds...Well I had no money and couldnt buy one but knew my horse would love them.

    I went home and made my own,well two. I made them into cute lil heart and star. By the second day that I came out to the barn her whole head was sticky! Her forlock was so sticky I could make it stand up like a mo hawk. Ears and fur had seeds and stuff in it. Even under her girth area was sticking.

    It was so funny like seeing a kid just get done eating a huge melting ice cream. Both treats were gone. They were big too!

    LOL awww that's so cute! :P
    Lexi loves treats too...hehe sometimes it can get annoying if I feed her treats, 'cause afterwards she'll be really hyper & try to nibble anything that passes her by!

    Thats such a cool idea, so cute. And sounds like they didnt waste any time getting into them I can imaging my boy Banjo would be exactly the same....hes gobble it dow in 5mins flat, lol.

    What I want to get is a treat ball. One that the horse can push around the paddock and treats fall out. Banjo would LOVE it! But I can't find them....NZ its kinda limited for things like that....so I might have to try and make my own.

    They make those treat balls for horses? I know they do for dogs...Cant you just order them online?

    I've tried the treat ball...it didn't work out to great...but only because Dez is a bit of a goof.

    I can't feed Dez treats too often...he'll take it to the extreeme. If you drop a carrot in his bucket..he'll holler at you if you walk off...or constantly check you. He's the same with just about anything...you give him an inch and he'll take a mile. Lol

    Anyway, I got him one of those rolly balls and he FREAKED, guess he thought it was a monster. Lol I tried to show him it was a good thing, but he wasn't having it. But this is coming from a horse that used to spook at butterflies. He's silly. :roll:

    Thats funny I think they are worse then dogs when it comes to begging. I would like to get my horse those lick-it...stuff that hangs from the apple or whatever a lot of the horses in my barn have it. At least now I know any thing that taste good gypse will gobble it up in less then two days. The next time I make the treat balls im going to go out with a camera!

    How did you make it? I was wanting one to put at the head of our wash rack to keep them busy when getting a bath. I thought they were a little overpriced. Would love to be able to make one.
    I got a bag of cracked corn for my chickens and have been giving the girls a handful. They go nuts for it, more so then for any other treats.
