    I woudn't waste the money. But I have never desensitized to traffic noises. I have to flags and bells and other flying and noisy objects but never to traffic.

    I wouldn't waste money either. You could probably download some noises online, or just play c(rap).

    nope, if you want your horse truly desensitized to traffic expose them to the real thing, hearing an engine and hearing a real one attatched to a giant thing coming at you will be 2 different things IMO ;)

    Just slowly introduce it to them like anything else is probably better than a cd.

    No its a waste of money. Though I do have radios on and tapes of loud music and bands and bagpipes.

    If a horse could stand the sound of pipes..

    Traffic would be a cake walk :wink:
