    One of ours - don't know which one - likes to turn our mounting block upside down. The jolly ball remains pretty much in place. So, perhaps mounting blocks do make good toys!

    My horse completely agrees. He loves turning the mounting block upside down, picking it up, then running around the arena. (Hope the link works).

    I have a video somewhere of him running with it. It would scare the horses in the corrals along the arena.

    Hmm, looks like the link can only be accessed if I'm logged into Facebook. Anyone know how to link it when I'm not logged in?

    I'm logged in and didn't work, prob settings are set to private .

    Rory licks the mounting block and gets a dreamy look on his face. I need to try to capture this. But I think he has something wrong with him, upstairs . I put my hands in my pockets once, so he licked my jeans over my hands.

    This surprised me! I thought my Paint was the only horse who loved to play with the mounting block. I'm always having to hunt it down and put it back before rides. But, it's heavy plastic, no sharp edges, totally harmless. Funny how he has zero interest in any other item left out.

    Okay, let's see if this works. Now I'm just seeing if I can figure out how to link a picture.

    LOL! But see, Tiki once thought that the same kind of mounting block, turned over, was an instrument of Instant and Painful Horse Death-- so it literally all depends on how you look at it!

    That's a GREAT picture! Thanks for posting it!!!!
