Why did you choose this?
A gentleman said it runs a bit large. I assume he is talking about the horse, not the cob. I ordered four of another brand from another company and they are too small for one of my QH geldings who has, unfortunately, a rather large head. I can get the two inches below the chin but it is too confining around the muzzle for him to grasp and chew properly therefore he will not attemp to eat with it on! I need about two inches extra around the muzzle. Can someone give me a circumference on both muzzles? Thanks so much for anyone's help.
Best Answer: Cob
Crown strap: 21"-27" Throat strap: 14"-16" Cheek strap: 3 1/2"-6 1/2" Muzzle circumference: 26" Full Crown strap: 21"-30" Throat strap: 15"-20" Cheek strap: 5"-8" Muzzle circumference: 28"
Can a horse use this muzzle when eating hay, and still be able to actually get some hay through the muzzle? Or does it only work for gazing on grass?
Best Answer: Only works for grazing grass, and then not real long grass. Must be standing up to work.
Just limit the amount of hay given. Even if it is on a round bale, you can fence around and make it harder to get to the bale.
Is the fleece removable for washing or replacement?
Best Answer: No, it's attached to the basket and can not be removed. That would be a neat feature, but mine has held up find this summer with only quick rinsing.
Does muzzle come with halter?
Best Answer: Yes, the muzzle comes with an integrated nylon web halter. The closures are double velcro with "keepers" and there are fittings to allow adjustments for indivdual sizing. (I did reinforce the closure at the crownpeice with tape, not a problem with the halter just a clever Halflinger! I use the throat latch for on and off) The crown piece and throat latch have comfort pads and the fleece feature extends deeper into the muzzle to protect the horse's muzzle better than other brands I have used. Also, the design is contoured under the chin preventing rubbing. My horse lives at turnout wearing the muzzle, and has not experienced any irritation.
I am very happy with this product.
Does this have a breakaway feature in case of entanglement?
Best Answer: This is a great muzzle. Well made, comfortable & stays on. It has a very heavy duty velcro break away. Only issue I have with this in the summer - is with a fly mask- I feel like it must get too hot. I'll bring him in on a hot day rather than have him wear all that. But, that has nothing to do with the quality of the muzzle !
