Tell me what to buy! I have no idea what kind of stall toys Eli might be interested in. I have been looking at online and brick & mortar places and I wonder if I should buy everything and throw it all at Eli to see what sticks? That seems rather uneconomical.
I am pretty sure I’ll get him an Uncle Jimmy’s Hanging Treat Ball.
Do I get a Jolly Ball?
What about the the rolling treat dispenser thingy? I am less sure about that because Eli is on shavings and dumping treats into shavings just encourages his already-annoying behavior of dumping his grain into his shavings. How many shavings does he actually consume? I have no idea. But maybe I could use it in the barn aisles at the end of hand walking …
Another great idea a friend suggested was to get a giant stuffed animal and hang it. But how gross would that get? I guess Conrad’s stuffingless toys are pretty nasty but I let him keep those. And then Stacie mentioned yesterday that a giant rope toy for dogs could work, so that’s a good possibility.
I also remember a long time ago someone hanging giant wood block bird toys in a horse’s stall when that horse was on stall rest.
Maybe I could make something?
The small upside to this confinement is that Eli will not be able to play bitey-face with anyone, so all of those bites on his face will heal.
