"Horses from all backgrounds are having a ball with  Equi-Spirit toys", says co-creator Lisa Ross-Williams.  "From Andalusian and Friesian stallions, cutting and  reining horses, dressage competitors and beloved  backyard horses, all are benefiting from this unique,  extra durable 40" horse play ball".  Lisa continues, "Even Kentucky Derby winner 2009, Mine That Bird is an Equi-Spirit ball supporter."

Now, Equi-Spirit can add another equine celebrity to their long list of satisfied horse customers--Einstein, the world's smallest stallion and international media phenomenon.  Charlie Cantrell, Einstein's owner stated via email, "We want to let you know we received the Equi-Spirit ball, and our little stud  Einstein had a grand time playing with it.  It is now his favorite toy!  We are beginning our national book tour and will be appearing on many major talk shows and in print media."

When born, Einstein weighed only 6 pounds and stood 14 inches tall.  The book about his life, A Friend For Einstein-The Smallest Stallion was just released and is on the New York Times Best Seller list.  For  more information about Einstein, visit his website at  www.smalleststallion.com

His co-owner, Dr. Leonard Blach contacted the Equi- Spirit office to order another Equi-Spirit ball.  He stated via email, “Mine That Bird has so much fun with his ball. He always had something to play with, but this is his favorite toy.  He has it in his sand paddock in the daytime, then at night he wants it in his stall with him; it’s his security blanket. I love watching them play with it. Thanks so much for this idea.”
