Does your bun get a treat ball out of a corner ?

I've had 3 house rabbits, Robin a cocky little polish X, Flynn a sweet gentle lionhead & my current bun Toby, a nosy asbo lionhead.

Out of the three of them only Robin would get the treat ball ( ball with holes in so the food comes out when the bun nugges it around ) out of a corner by scrabbling at it with his front paws.

Two of the four buns we've had could do this, Molly would paw at it but Monty just picks it up and runs away with it! :lol:

Two of mine won't waste their time on a treat ball. :roll: It's not that they're not clever... well, Amber isn't the brightest button, but Barney is my little genius... They just get bored of it really quick and lose interest. My food motivated pair of girls use brute force with their treat balls and smash them about rather than roll. It's scary to watch the violence they'll use just to get three or four pellets...!

Ours can get balls out of corners, but we had to take away their treatball after they decided to go for the direct approach & knawed a large hole in the side to get the pellets out quicker!:roll:

Our Tilly picks it up with her teeth and throws it around.

This is what Radish does with hers too.

After reading about everyone elses buns I have decided that my lionheads were/are either a bit thick or lazy or too well mannered with their treat ball.
