    Talking For the bored horse!

    HaHaHa
    Just saw this while shopping for something else:

    Neigh Station

    One of my horses might actually like this but I'm not willing to spend $90 to find out.

    I think I need this. During the last four days my mare has: somehow grabbed a bag of shavings that was outside her corral, dragged it over the fence, tore it apart and spread shavings all over the corral; pulled her blanket up over her head, getting it stuck there; undone one of the two front straps of her blanket; dug a hole about 10 inches deep, which I then filled, and she then dug again; and grabbed a bag of hay that was WELL out of the way and behind a tree, pulled it into her corral and dumpled all the hay out, leaving the bag in a small crumpled heap. She has a jolly ball, but that I guess is not enough!

    I seriously think my horse would love this. The need that prompted its invention is definitely a first world problem.

    Now, what would make this really appealing would be if it dispensed a single treat at very random intervals while the horse was playing with it.

    My horse once responded to the intercom, someone called out to the groom and my guy neighed back. I'm thinking if you put those press-to-talk intercoms in with separate buttons for different stalls they'd spend the whole day on the "phone"

    I can't get past that it looks like a parakeet toy.

    I'd think that the mirror might be a little dangerous. I've been told that sometimes horses will strike out at the "mirror image"?

    The baby* has one, and he loves it. His mom could care less. He pulls at the guy (the head is detachable on purpose) and flings it all around, he rubbed his nose all over the mirror, it's scratched up. He doesn't do a lot with the latch, or maybe I just didn't notice.
