Recommended by Veterinarians to prevent problems associated with overeating. The muzzle is constructed of durable nylon webbing and has a flexible rubber bottom with a small opening. The small opening allows the pony to eat small amounts of grass while providing unrestricted drinking. Rather than being confined to a non-grass environment to control intake, ponies are free to exercise and socialize as part of the herd.
The grazing muzzle is designed for comfort and safety for your pony. The basket weave style construction resists rubbing and chafing so common with other muzzles. It's rot-resistant and easy to clean with soap and water. The muzzle is made of black Nylon and attaches easily onto any turnout halter using the velcro fasteners. The picture shows plastic clips but these have been replaced with velcro attachments. The velcro allows the muzzle to breakaway for safety. To determine which size is going to fit your pony the best follow the directions below:
Measure up the muzzle depth on your pony and check the circumference at that point. The muzzle should not fit tight but should have a few fingers space between the muzzle and pony.
