    Hi All,
    Last fall we built a teeter totter, ramp and walkway in our ND pen. We covered everything with roofing shingles as a friend suggested. It seems they might be getting bored with them now and we are looking for new ideas. anything would help. our little buck Jack is getting pretty mischeivious lately.

    Thanks,
    Gina

    All I have is those big round spool. I have several of them and different sizes, and I have some big tires. Ok, I also have some HUGE boulders.

    Rocks are great fun! I got my boys a 68,000 pound boulder with lots of ledges and whatnot- perfect for playing and climbing and sleeping. They are on it most of the day, sleeping, and keeping lookout. They also play on it a lot too.

    Smaller rocks work too. They also keep their feet looking great!!! I never have to trim hooves in the spring and summer, when they are outside nearly all the time, and only once or twice in the winter.

    Re

    Thanks for your great ideas. Gosh I love this board, I'm learning so much. Where can I buy a boulder like that? If I can't get a boulder, then will defiantly get some spools. The kids toys are a great idea too.
    Thanks, Gina

    I have wooden spools and then I have a big blue plastic barrel that was a "toy" for the horses that were at the property before we got there. We also built a big wook box for them to jump up on in the covered area, and they like to get up on the hay feeder platform also (I don't use it for hay)

    I was thinking about a tether ball for mine on a post

    I actually bought our two dwarfs a picnic table. They love it and it sits right under the kitchen window where we can visit all the time. :)

    I'd like to try out the spools, where do y'all get them from?

    I was going to get a punching bag for the boys. Poor guys have resorted to beating up a pile of shavings today. Lol

    Ha! You can call the landfill. Usually they'll save them for you. Or the city?

    My Mother-in-law snagged 2 spools for free from the electric company here. She just asked and they put them in the car for her.
