Rollers are good for 'something to do'. Lets them play with something else rather than your arm

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

I have a mini stud colt who does this same stuff and the only way to stop him completely is to give him a pacifier of sorts, which is also a lead rope. He has his own lead rope we use around the barn because if I am walking and have to stop for some reason or another he will trying to nip and chew on everything, and all the horses from his bloodline have done the same thing, there is no breaking some of them. The lead rope works wonders and I have not created any bad habits out of letting him chew on it, the only thing it did do was stop him from chewing on me!

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
