Purchase: I purchased 2 Nose-It balls directly from the manufacturer's website www.nose-it.com for $75, including shipping. The videos on their website were very intriguing. I was looking for a toy to keep a cribber occupied and away from the fence.
Likes: Two of my 4 horse (the young ones, 4 and 6 yrs) absolutely LOVE these balls!! I fill them with cut carrots and apples (the hole is about 1" diameter), and some pellet horse treats. They will even leave their hay to come play with it when I bring it out refilled. They even keep rolling it around long after it is empty. The flat sides make it roll a little erratically, which keeps them interested. The older horses (14 and 24 yrs) roll it enough to get one or two treats out, but then lose interest.
Dislikes: Snow sticks to the outside, so it becomes a bigger and bigger snowball as they roll it around in the snow. I scrape off the snow when I refill it every day. Very minor dislike, overall I really love it.
Quality: Very durable, does not break or crack when kicked. I thought it was a little pricey, but now that I see how well made it is, I think it is fairly priced for what you get.
Summary: This is a terrific toy for playful and curious horses. It works in both stalls and pasture. I plan to bring one to shows to give my horse something to do in his stall in between events.
Usefulness Rating: 3 out of 5.
