I purchased pastor toys many years ago and I ended up being the only one to play with them.

10/24/2011 3:20:54 PM

I give him a milk jug and hang it by bailing twine. He destroys it once a week

The only thing that interested him was the Lik-it but only until the treat was gone.

10/21/2011 1:05:17 AM

Jolly ball

10/20/2011 10:57:36 PM

If they did not have toys they would be into mischief.

10/20/2011 6:56:34 PM

Only our orphan heifer has played with toys--not the horses

10/20/2011 6:51:26 PM

Of the two stallions, one LOVES his toys, the other one ignores them, although he can see the other.

10/20/2011 6:26:33 PM

They're just not interested

10/20/2011 5:57:16 PM

Tried a jolly ball but not interested. Much rather play with other horses in pasture.

10/20/2011 4:32:03 PM

Lots of toys ,the fence the feeder the gate lock and the waterer but not the expensive horse toys

10/20/2011 4:26:46 PM

but only if they include food.

10/20/2011 3:43:51 PM

I would have some if he was in a stall.

10/20/2011 3:26:47 PM

Pasture toys only, horses not confined in stalls

10/20/2011 2:57:22 PM

My Mare is in aherd with 100 others, they keep each other busy

10/20/2011 2:52:47 PM

The jolly-balls, & handled milk bottles are always in different locations.

10/20/2011 2:50:21 PM

Even if toys were available, the 7 horses would not play with them

10/20/2011 11:42:39 AM

I will give him cardboard boxes-no staples in them and let him find the goodies I hide in there. le

10/20/2011 11:04:14 AM

he only uses them when we travel to shows, otherwise they're pretty much ignored.

10/20/2011 8:03:35 AM

My mare ignores anything put in the stall to play with -unless it is food!!!!

10/20/2011 1:58:14 AM

But they would probably enjoy pasture toys, so I'm considering buying some.

10/19/2011 11:32:14 PM

I wish there was something that would keep his attention.

10/19/2011 11:15:57 PM

Our guys are in pasture 24/7. We tried some stuff, but they ignored them all.

10/19/2011 5:45:06 PM

they never played with them so i gave them to the dog!

10/19/2011 5:29:01 PM

A plastic barrel toy that treats come out of when he rolls it--when the food's gone, he's gone!

10/19/2011 5:04:47 PM

lives outside, boredom not a problem

10/19/2011 4:18:42 PM

My horses are not in stalls and in the pasture grass is more interesting than toys.

10/19/2011 3:35:14 PM

Favorite toy is his neighbor's rubber feed pan.

10/19/2011 3:32:52 PM

He played more when my other horse was alive and they used the toys together

10/19/2011 12:20:39 PM

Mare easily bored, we spread hay feedings throughout day, add many toys on rotation, esp. winter.

10/19/2011 10:51:14 AM

10/18/2011 10:49:14 PM

He's more scared of the toys than he is enamored by them!

10/18/2011 10:08:59 PM

One horse plays, the other doesn't

10/18/2011 7:04:01 PM

He's a clown, anything is considered a toy if it's not edible.
