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.

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

      This item works perfectly if you put a fly mask over it fairly tightly. Otherwise, it's too easy to just rub it off. It took my mare about two minutes to figure out how to use it, and would have taken probably only 30 seconds if she hadn't been distracted by nearby horses. It also fits in the automatic waterers we have in the field, although just barely (my mare wears a size medium--or "horse" size). A larger horse might need a trough if they can't get their nose in the waterer with the muzzle on.

          I got this in a large horse size and it looked enormous but it is very adjustable and fits my horse great. He rubbed it off a few times but after readjusting it he has kept it on. Does not rub his cheeks too much which is a major plus.

              We buy these so we don't have to worry about our horses getting obese and foundering. We have found these to be the best fit and last.

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

              I needed this ASAP after a laminitis attack.
              Schnieders overnighted it to me and that was a great help. My horse tried to shake it off the first couple of times he wore it but resigned himself to it fairly quickly.
              This product is very durable and of good quality. The halter portion however, has rubbed hair off my horse on the side of his face. I purchased moleskin from the shoe department of a drugstore and wrapped it around any spots that could rub. I think next spring I will purchase just the muzzle portion that attaches to a halter and also purchase a padded safety halter for peace of mind. Also, watch for pasturemates, my horse has one that grabs the muzzle and tries to drag him around by it. It can be pulled off by another horse. I only turn out when I am home to keep an eye on things. All in all, a great product that is now a staple at my house.

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

                    I purchased this product for my Shetland pony. I ordered the pony size which I had to make as small as possible to fit his face. He is very crafty, however he has not managed to figure out how to get it off. I appreciate the thickness of the materials used to make the grazing muzzle - I am hopeful it will survive a year or more. The hole through which grass can fit is larger than I expected, but the grass is short enough right now that he can't get any through it. He actually isn't allowed to graze at all anymore, I purchased this so that he can still be turned out with his buddies, but not be able to graze. I will have to re-evaluate the situation when the grass gets longer. He doesn't like wearing it because he cannot graze with it on, but he is discovering that wearing means he gets to be with his buddies. He is up to wearing it about two hours a day right now. If your horse is allowed to graze and you only need to limit grass intake and/or have longer grass in your pasture your horse or pony may not find it as frustrating. Overall it is a good product and I am happy I bought it.

                      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.
