These two playful horses may not agree on who gets the Jolly Ball, but it sure makes for some fun entertainment.
When we were kids, one of the first lessons our parents tried to teach us was how to share. There’s a balance to playing with others, and sharing toys wasn’t always the greatest thing in the world.
Clearly, it’s a lesson that these two playful horses haven’t quite mastered. With one Jolly Ball and two of them, playtime turns into a bit of a fight.
These playful horses think their toy is great. In fact, the only thing that could make this situation better was if there were two Jolly Balls. Still, the horses are having a pretty good time with their one Jolly Ball, even if they don’t care much about that sharing thing.

This is one example of how stall toys can provide horses with entertainment. Many horses are easily bored and can take up negative behaviors, like weaving or wood chewing when they can’t find anything better to do. While it’s always best to try to maximize a horse’s turnout to combat boredom, sometimes you don’t have any choice but to keep a horse in a stall. And that’s where stall toys come in.
Stall toys, like the Jolly Ball here, can be very useful for playful horses. They give horses something in their stall that they can engage with. It’s a good way for them to get rid of some excess energy in a positive way. If you need a stall toy for your horse, you’ll find that there are many options on the market. Some are fairly basic, like Jolly Balls, while others have ways to incorporate treats to further entice your horse. You may need to try a few different options before you find a toy that truly catches your horse’s attention.
