It is not unusual to see a ball in a pen of horses. They like to play. But this horse has a strange favorite toy. What is even more curious is how he likes to play with it.
To be sure, many animals have favorite toys. Cats love rubber mice. Dogs often have a favorite stick or ball they love to chase. Many times they can be quite possessive, even to the point that they won’t let go of whatever it is. It can even be something like a scratching post that your cat just can’t seem to stop playing with. Even a bird can become enthralled with a mirror as if his image is his best friend. All of these are examples of the a phenomenon we see every day when it comes to a favorite toy.
It leads one to ask, just how much can an animal experience what we call fun, or perhaps joy, when ‘playing’ with a toy? Clearly there is something there. This experience is not for humans only. And, we too, have toys that aren’t easily parted with and when we find that perfect toy, it can be nearly impossible for us to let go. You might say it is hard wired into our brains. The enjoyment we derive from playing with objects returns something real but intangible.
The video below reveals a special kind of playful relationship between a horse called Kruzah and what one would think would be a rather unusual toy. Kruzah is a beautiful horse with a toy that makes noise. Not just any noise, but Kruzah illustrates that sound can be a very strong factor when it comes to picking a favorite or perfect toy. Can you guess what the toy really is? Kruzah will make you smile, laugh, and yes, capture your undivided attention.
