"My horse loves this toy!"
Bought this to combat boredom for my senior horse while he's stalled overnight. He loves it! Might I add while he was figuring out how to dispense the treats, he was biting it HARD trying to get through. I thought the toy would be a goner by morning but it has held up nicely to the abuse! I put a mix of grass pellets and small hay cubes in it and that keeps him entertained all night. I have found it works best when loaded up with treats, other wise they are quite difficult to get out (even for a human!)
"Perfect for Pigs too!!"
I'm the pet specialist here at Jeffers and just purchased the Ball Feeder for Winston, my Pot Belly Pig. What an awesome toy this is for pigs!! The "treats" come out slow enough to be challenging, but fast enough to keep him engaged! It is extremely sturdy, even when Winston rolled around on top of it, the toy suffered no damage! If you have a pet pig, you NEED this toy!
"Great slow feeder"
Bought these for our sanctuary ponies who are in group situations. We also use 1" slow feed hay nets. Between the two they keep the ponies continuously feeding, slowly. (Just hay stretcher for us) They thwart the bullies from getting most of the feed, and they help prevent blood sugar peaks and valleys for our insulin resistant ones. The ponies look fantastic! FYI the max holding capacity is about 3 quarts. You put in what and how much you wish. (We use a funnel to easily fill them.) Jeffers was exceptional in getting these to us too! Great customer service!
"Best stall toy EVER (well created so far)!!"
I came across the Shires treat ball actually at a store. I immediately bought every one that they had. My horses range in age from young to ancient and I wanted to try these with all but especially my seniors and ancient ones. I've had boarders who have purchased and used successfully the other great dispensing toys. I didn't like them because of their size.
It's quite difficult to get treats out of this contraption. My horse wasn't nearly motivated enough to bother. It's also annoying to clean.
"Back for more"
Bought one for my horse who is on stall rest. He loves it and the flat sides keep it from rolling out of the pipe stall (most of the time). My other horse has a treat ball made for dogs, and his keeps rolling away, so I'm buying him one of these. I fill the ball with hay pellets and it acts like a slow feeder. So far it has held up well.
Bought several toys to keep my youngster busy, but this is the only one he will play with. Put some hay pellets in and within a few minutes he was going to town. Soon my mare started to chase him away so she could play with it. I'm going to buy another one so they both have one.
"Perfect horse toy"
I bought this for my inquisitive little pony figuring it would help keep him busy. Well within 5 minutes of deploying the toy, both him and my mare (unexpected) were rolling this around and squabbling over who got to play with it. I put about 1 C of grain in it again this morning and pony has been rolling it around for about an hour. May need a second one for the other horse. Love this.
"My horse loves this"
I've had this for four months. I bought it after my horse died and my other was bored. She loves this ball she has played with it every night.
