    Just thought I would share a few cut photos. This is our yearling colt Pistol playing this his ball a couple of days ago. He tares that thing up, it full of holes. [​IMG]

    Well, I had no idea a horse would play with a ball! And he is a beauty too!

    I have had a horse that LOVED his Jolly Ball! He would carry that thing around and shake his head with it. They are so funny to watch!

    A friend had a stallion that would play basketball in his stall. He had a wall mounted manger and would roll the basket ball up the wall with his nose and put it in the hay manger. Then of course he would get it out and do it all again! Very funny to watch, but I think the poor guy was bored out of his mind.

    He has a green jolly ball in his stall, his favorite thing to do is take it and dump it in his water bucket and play with it in the water! He is such a goof ball.[​IMG]

    Great fun pics of a beautiful colt! Thanks, brightened my day to see Pistol being a pistol! [​IMG]

    I got a Jolly Ball for my Lab- he tore it up and had a grand time with it. It would sit out in the rain and fill with water - he'd grab it later and SPLOOSH a wet head. [​IMG] Only Lab I know with webbed toes that hates the water! [​IMG]

    My first stallion had a jolly ball, he loved it, I hated it at least after he learned to throw it and hit me in the back of the head with it anyway....... [​IMG]

    I thought about getting Bucket one, but I am afraid he would be deadly with a ball and then learn how to use a bucket as a weapon too.

    Cute pics (and cute colt!)

    My gelding loves his ball. [​IMG] One of these days I want to try him with one of those really large ones.

    That's just what happens too...either a flying bucket or one of my has gotten real good at tossing the large rubber floor feed pans. Gigantic frisbee! They do love their jolly balls, I have never gotten one to last more than a year though.
