Rated 4 out of 5 by gamingirl44 It Works Better Than I Thought!
My vet recommended the Best Friend Deluxe Grazing Muzzle because it was the best one on the market. We had to widen the hole more because my miniature wasn't getting any grass at all, but now she is getting some but not near as much as she would without the muzzle on. Some people say that the muzzle rubs the hair off on their horses, but our muzzle fits my miniature perfectly. She only wears it for about 4 hours in the morning every day and she never had any problems with it. She drinks out of it just fine, and it's a really great product. I just wish it was a little cheaper...

Rated 4 out of 5 by rowdygirl Best I've found
This muzzle is the best I have found to prevent overgrazing/founder during prime grass season. My horses have enlarged the hole at the bottom by season's end, however and I would like to find a way to pad the chin area to prevent abrasions. Small complaints compared to saving my horse and burro from founder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michele great product
Have used this product for about three years on my mare. Have had to buy a new one every year because they wear out and the hole gets bigger. She adjusted to it with no problems. It really serves the purpose! She can be outside and graze, but not overeat!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Doug Jimerson O.K., but could be better
Bought two of these last spring and they worked o.k. and one horse has actually lost about 100 pounds. But, the product itself could be made better. The plastic fittings have broken on my first set. Also, it would be nice if they came in colors other than black. When they get rubbed off the horse, which has happened with mine a lot, it's very difficult to find them again in a large pasture with tall grass. Overall, it's a necessary product for me and works, but could be improved in a number of ways. It also leaves black marks on the muzzles of both horses. So, right now, it's a necessary evil I'll have to pay for until a better grazing muzzle becomes available.

love the muzzle and it is working great but I've noticed it is rubbing the hair off my horse's nose and under his jaws. Any ideas on how to stop this

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rose Ann Sabaka Pretty neat!
I'm not sure how he gets any grass but he's had it on over a week when he goes out at night and it's still in one piece. My gelding has Cushing disease and if this keeps him from foundering...GREAT!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Liv Just OK - nothing more
My horse definately doesen´t like it - but that was also kind of the general idea.. It restricts his grazing, but I think the product could have been made better. It works, but It´s a compromise..

My mare developed a bad wood chewing habit and everything I tried wouldnt get her to stop. I decided to try the grazing muzzle and now she cannot chew the wood anymore. She has not been able to shake it off and the muzzle is still in tact. I would definitely recommend anyone who has wood chewers to try it. I am very pleased with the product. It was very well made as well.
