Jolly Ball Fun

Jolly balls are awesome equine enrichment toys. They really are. My Girls have 2…well 3 if you include the big one that we haven’t blown up and tossed at them yet…as you can see by the following pictures, jolly balls are fun, interactive, and they make horses think.

Note** I haven’t been paid or given any products by the makers of Jolly Balls to endorse their products, but y’know, should they want to give us a few to test out, my Girls would be more than happy to give ’em a go! 😉

Bella and the Ball5First day we tossed them out, Sable got bored…this time, she really enjoyed exploring the fun of the ball. She figured out the handle pretty quick, and loved chewing it!

Bella and the Ball6Nosing it around in the snow was fun too.

Bella and the Ball7Haha! Then she chewed the whole thing. She was a happy Girl, playing with this. 🙂

Astrid and the BallAstrid kept pawing it, moving it back towards herself. She get it right underneath her belly, then hop back and paw it again.

Cookie found Astrid’s antics interesting…

Cookie and the Ball3She was so curious, watching Astrid chew and lick that ball.

Cookie and the BallShe circled around Astrid, and came at it from the other side…brave Girl tried to figure out how to play with it, but when the ball moved she jumped straight backwards. I laughed so hard that she flounced off in a huff. 😉

Astrid came back to the ball, but in short order, Ruby decided to take it over.
