Well, I've decided Rusty needs a Jolly ball since he wants to put everything he sees in his mouth. The other day, I left a hammer on top of the stall wall and he picked it up and started swinging it back and forth. Not kidding. With my luck, he won't care about the Jolly ball...

Was thinking I might get Harley a pair of Whinny Warmers (https://soxforhorses.com/) for Harley since his Silver Whinnys really help his dermititis and it's so cold here.

Maybe some new halters too. My Christmas photo shoot was done with some old, dusty halters on. I wish I had some for special occasions that I would keep clean.

Other than that - bags of treats? There are some neat balls that hold treats too - they're supposed to roll the balls around and shake out the treats. I think Rusty would like one like that too. What about a quarter sheet to keep his back and bum warm on cold rides?

Thank you so much!! It sounds like a really good idea

My girlfriend's horse is getting a nice comfy easy to put on horse blanket for Christmas just in time for those really chilly nights here in Texas.

Lots of DIY horse cookie recipes out there. Or just get a bag of unsalted peanuts in the shell (a feed store item, I think people feed them to birds). My horse will do anything for a peanut.

Last year I got Nav a giant peppermint stick (like half inch thick and about 7 inches long) from the dollar store for 89 cents. He LOVED it, and it was a treat that lasted because I didn't give it to him all at once. :)





Nice thing about horses are that they are pretty easy to please and don't *need* anything extravagant as a gift. Nav will probably get another peppermint stick this year, but also a new salt block for his stall.

Great idea! I am totally doing this for all three of mine.

Funny you said this... we had a question on the trail the other day. I had a bag of peanuts in the shell, but salted. We didn't know if horses could have them, shell and all. Can they???
