My horses didn't want to play
I was disappointed at how uninterested my horses were in the ball. They seem to like the binder twine toy I made them better. The ball is nice, seems to be of good quality and apprears durable.

Cow loves it
I actually bought this ball for my jersey cow and not my horses. I got it as a stress reliever for when she was in heat. I actually didn't get this ball until after she'd been bred, but she had a deflated (thanks to my old dog) jolly ball she'd push all over the pen with her head and would get down on her knees and roll her chin all over it. While not currently in any heats she still pushes both balls around the pen at night and likes to stand over them or put her front foot on them. They seem to keep her occupied part of the time anyhow. If the time came I needed another ball for cow or horse I would get this. Plus, I think it was made in the USA.

Soccer ball horse toy
Between my horses and my dog this ball was torn up within 48 hrs. Of receiving it. Bummer.

They changed the ball!! Not for the good.
This may be ok for a horse. I bought one for my horse and he couldn't care less so I gave it to my 100 lb German Shepherd. He LOVED IT. It took about 3 months before he had actually tore it and his teeth were getting stuck. I ordered a NEW ONE. The packaging said for horses and dogs. Well..... It was an inch smaller in circumference, so it was quite a bit smaller. Making it easier for my dog to put his whole mouth across and then get stuck!! There are already holes in it after just a few minutes. They checked stock and ALL of the new ones are the same. New one seems to be a different formula, not as rubbery, more plastic, making it not as durable or strong. I would recommend it for a much smaller dog,, but not for a large dog or a strong biter. :(. Smart Pak was great, and took care of me right away!!

I bought this as the Jolly ball seem to get torn up pretty quick. Haven't seen my horse play with this as much as she did with the Jolly Ball....and time will tell how it will hold up. Can't really evaluate the durability and thus quality & value. It does seem to be a bit thicker so maybe it will last longer....once she starts chewing and playing with it.

Durable and entertaining!
I purchased this for my Arabian gelding. He is 3 years old, still a bit mouthy, and he gets bored in his stall very easily. He enjoys this so far, and it has held up well to him biting and stepping on it. I also bought it for my senior pony who seems to like it until he realizes it isn't something he can eat. Regardless, it has been a great toy for my Arabian, and I am glad it has held up so well. The barn dog also attempted to steal the ball, and I had a fun time trying to get it back from him too!
