As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Uncle Jimmy recorded a song just for us about his unique product - Click here to take a listen.

You can imagine how hard it is to write copy for a product with a name like this!  We don't want to offend, but at the same time we think it's really funny.  So we'll stick to the facts. 

After winning an Innovation Award at a recent trade show, we knew that Uncle Jimmy was getting serious about selling treat balls. The design and concept of hanging balls is revolutionary. Horses love these, plain and simple.  They're made out of sweet feed specially processed to stick together and last a long time.

    Uncle Jimmy's Hangin' Balls is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 116.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from My horse finished it in one day! So Uncle Jimmy's Hangin Ball comes in a nice tub so you don't get sticky fingers pulling it out. The side of the container says it lasts one week to one month. My horse must be an over achiever.....ate it in one day. And no...he's not underfed. I like the ball, clearly Mo did (my horse). Just wished for the money it would last a little longer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My horse loves this! For a horse on stall rest, this is a nice treat! It only lasted her a couple of days but made her very happy!
    Date published: 2017-03-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Distraction! My horse is laid up and this kept him entertained for a week or so before he ate his way through it. Much better than the shape of a lick-it and probably would have been even more effective if I hadn't had it hung against the wall!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Irresistable!!! I first bought one of these when our horse was on stall rest and very bored. Even though he is a finicky eater, he loved it and the fact that it was a challenge to eat helped with the boredom. I now by them every winter to keep him busy and happy!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't stay on the string After hanging in a tree in the shade for 1 day...the next day i was out by it in the pasture and it just fell off the string. Im not sure if it was the heat or what but it did not stay on the string.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A hit, but messy! My girl LOVES these, but I spent about a half hour every morning with a rag and warm water trying to clean molasses off her entire face =P Glad she had so much fun, but it's a bit of a hassle. Switched over to the "Big Licky" and that solved the problem though! So A+ for the recipe, but the ball shape just isn't quite right for us.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My colt loves it! I bought this about 2 weeks ago because I have a paint colt who gets very bored. I opened the container and HE LOVES IT! His poor little mouth is trying to grab the whole thing ahaha. It smells very sweet. Be careful in hot weather, though. It gets sticky!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boredom breaker My mare was stuck on stall rest after we had to cut an abscess out of her flank and this kept her quiet in her stall, even with the other horses running around in fields. It was worth every penny!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horses love this! I bought this to try to keep my ottb entertained in her stall when she couldn't go out because of weather. She loves it and would not step away from it! I will definitely be buying more!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea! I bought this for my mare who doesn't really mess with the other Uncle Jimmy's lucky things (she needs it to be VERY obvious or she is uninterested...typical mare!). This is great for her because she will only nibble on it. But if you have a voracious eater, then it will not last long at all!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting, fun treat! Our picky TB loves these treats! Because of the way they hang, they are a challenge to eat and help with boredom during the winter months and last a long time!
    Date published: 2016-01-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They love 'em Got two miniature donkeys making it through the winter, for the most part confined to their stalls. For the last five years or so this has been their Christmas present. They wait right next to the their hanging ball until I drop them for fifteen minutes a day worth of enjoyment, which lasts until spring. Great treats!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves these! Maybe she loves them too much! She goes through them quickly :) I use this on my horse that is a little less interested in the more "gimmicky" treats. She loves it and it helps keep her intrigued in between turn out, rides and feeding. Love the auto-ship feature SmartPak offers with this product as well!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Idea, Needs Refining I thought this would be the perfect boredom-breaker for my horse, who lives outside in a pipe corral. At first she didn't know what to do with it--I had hung it from the top of a second gate we don't use. So I moved it. But I moved it too close, and she finished it off in less than a day. I hung another one by a shorter chain. She grabbed it in her teeth and pulled it completely off the string, as she did the second one. I'll try one more, and if the same thing happens, I'll experiment with something else. It might work with other horses but it didn't with mine. I would still recommend it, though.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Won't last long Asides from the sticky mess it creates, it won't last very long. It's very messy and I found myself scrubbing from his coat all that sticky mess. My horse will eat just about anything and loves all that's sweet. So he destroyed this ball in less than 2 hours. I was hoping it would last longer, but that was not the case. I'll have to buy another stall toys to keep him busy and away from destroying my water and grain buckets. For the price I think there's better options. It's a good reward treat though.
    Date published: 2015-06-11
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Idea I bought this for my young green mouthy horse to have something to do in the stall. She was interested in it for a few minutes then went back to just enjoying a basic salt block. She is not a picky eater at all. I even put it right next to a wall so it would be easier for her but she was not in to it. I wish she would have liked it! Side note: Do not leave it in the sun or it will get all gross..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty diversion Positive peer pressure pushed me into purchasing this product for my pony (how’s that for alliteration?). Many owners in my barn had either purchased or received these sweet-feed packed horse treats as holiday gifts and extolled their virtues and their caveats; I’ll do the same, as being forewarned is forearmed! As far as taste, my TB seemed to have quite an appetite for the treat, but not distractingly so. He would leave it to eat his meals, nap, etc., so I would not be the reviewer to say he “was obsessed” with the product, but he did undoubtedly enjoy it! It took him just over a fortnight to consume the entire product BUT I did hang it in his stall AS INSTRUCTED by the manufacturer. I not only followed Uncle Jimmy’s directions but learned from my barn mates the pitfalls of allowing your horse to pin the product against a wall or other surface which allows the horses’ teeth to find steady purchase, thus allowing him/her to consume the entire product in one standing. As other reviewers have stated, I did find bits of grain stuck in odd places on my horses’ face (and ears and throatlatch and crest and poll- you get the idea), but nothing a damp, hot towel couldn’t remove. I would purchase this product again, and recommend you give it a try. Buy a screw-eye with it (, find some baling twine and hang it from the ceiling but at your horses’ eye-height, keep it away from the stall walls and let your horse give it a go. And try not to get it stuck to your own head when you're mucking out!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Uncle Jimmy's Hangin Balls This is great for my horse on days when the weather is too bad to go out. However, I have to say he is not crazy about this. I used to get a product called The Bizzy Ball. He LOVED this. However, they discontinued making this. He will nibble away at Uncle Jimmy's eventually. It still serves the purpose of keeping him engaged and I will continue to get them.
    Date published: 2015-02-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horses Love! My horses just love their Uncle Jimmy's Hangin' Balls. It helps to relieve boredom from the stall when kept in during bad weather.
    Date published: 2014-09-16
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can't afford Way too expensive to last for only for 4-7 days for a horse stall bound for months. Wow. Horse liked it, my pocketbook didn't. I don't understand why these are so expensive.
    Date published: 2014-09-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves it This was my 6th purchase of this treat and my horse still loves it. I initially hung it in the middle of the stall, but my mare got bored because it was too much effort for her to keep licking on it. So I moved it to against the wall (but not in the corner). Now it gives her just enough challenge to entertain her for hours. Each ball lasts about 10 days for us this way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this ball!! I've bought at least a dozen of these and I don't feel bad about buying another dozen more :) My horse absolutely loves these! They're gone in about two weeks with my horse, he is constantly attacking it :) I love buying these for my horse. I don't recommend putting one in a stall at a show or you'll wish you hadn't. They are very sticky and very messy. They get all over your horses face because it spins around and rubs against them, naturally they don't care. Usually a wet wash cloth can clean them up but some (mine) needs a good bathing. They are the perfect think for a horse on stall rest though or for a horse that is in more than out. Actually any horse would love this sweet treat. I've never met a horse that doesn't like this product. I recommend hanging it where the horse cannot pin it or else it will be gone in T-no time. Gone! But it's fun to watch them play with the ball and try and take chunks out of it. I recommend this product!!
    Date published: 2014-08-04
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Epic fail - consider buying another product I bought this a month ago and I wish I hadn't. It "hanged" for two days and then the string came out. It went from a hanging ball to a rolling ball. VERY sticky so you can imagine the mess. Now I have a big stick ball that I can't really do anything with. I threw away my return label so I guess I'm "stuck" on this one... I encourage other buyers to look for a better product than this. I am 100% dissatisfied with this product.
    Date published: 2014-07-27
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like the title We bought this last month with our smart paks The horse liked it at first but since it is getting kind of dusty at the barn and the ball is sticky after she licks it picked up all the dust and is not good now. I guess it does not work for our barn.
    Date published: 2014-05-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Treat My horse will devour the LikIts in a matter of two hours but this held up for almost two weeks. The only complaint that I have is my horse managed to get residue all over his nose and you literally have to scrub it off. It's quiet a formidable size but I wish it was a tad bit larger.
    Date published: 2014-02-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mare loved it I bought this for my thoroughbred mare since she's been in her stall a lot due to weather. She loved it. She was trying to eat it while I was hanging it. I just wish it had lasted a little longer.
