Description:
Safe and comfortable, Best Friend Grazing Muzzles are recommended by equine health professionals to prevent, as well as treat, laminitis, founder, and obesity. The small opening in the bottom allows horses a limited amount of grass, yet unlimited water. Rather than being restricted to a non-grass environment to control intake, horses are free to exercise and socialize as part of the herd. The lightweight muzzles resist rubbing and chafing and will not rot. Best Friend Grazing Muzzles can also be used as a training tool to discourage bad habits such as nipping and cribbing . The muzzle is packaged in a free grooming bag.


Fitting Instructions:
Adjust the muzzle to the horse using the same principles as the fit of a comfortable halter. Leave approximately one-inch between the horse's mouth and the bottom of the muzzle. The "basket" of the muzzle should fit loosely for comfort and to allow the horse room to chew. You should be able to fit approximately two to three fingers sideways between the horse's face and the inside of the muzzle.


Breakaway Feature:
The plastic buckle on the headstall will hold in place under normal circumstances, yet will break away should your horse become entangled and struggle to get free. To replace, simply remove the old buckle and loop on the new buckle.

    Excellent product

    Comments about Best Friend™ Grazing Muzzle Complete with Adjustable Halter:

    Ordered this for a gelding that can be quirky about new things. We put this on him ( with the sheepskin liner) and he had no reaction at all. He can drink water perfectly fine and still gets a tiny amount of grass through the end. We have 2 geldings now using these just fine. A great alternative to them having a chance of colic due to gaining too much weight from constant grazing! They get regular exercise but that wasn't enough to keep weight off. I definitely recommend these.

      Comments about Best Friend™ Grazing Muzzle Complete with Adjustable Halter:

      The product looked great to me. My pony however was scared to death when I put it on her and after several attempts I decided it wasn't worth her getting upset over. I sent it back, sadly because it did appear well made and durable and certainly would limit her grass intake.

          Nice quality

          Comments about Best Friend™ Grazing Muzzle Complete with Adjustable Halter:

          I have a hard-to-fit horse and tried several different brands of muzzles. This one fits a bit better than the others and seems of better quality. I actually like the design of Smartpak's hard use (and quite inexpensive!) muzzle but it gapped too much at the top of the basket and I was afraid this horse would get his foot through it.

          • Q:

            What is the size of the grazing hole on the mini muzzle? My mini currently has a muzzle but the grazing hole is about 1 inch in diameter and she still gets too much grass.

              The mini muzzle has a 1" opening for grazing.
