Product Summary:

Ships to Canada
Best Friend® Deluxe Grazing Muzzles are recommended by equine health professionals to prevent, as well as treat, laminitis, founder, obesity, colic and other diet-related diseases. 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.  A combination grazing muzzle and breakaway halter all in one, the design utilizes a plastic side-release buckles as it's breakaway feature.  Each Deluxe muzzle comes with a spare buckle that can be easily attached in the field.   
 
To use, adjust The Best Friend®  Deluxe Grazing 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 inside of the muzzle. The Deluxe muzzle has a roomy fit to allow for chewing. You should be able to fit two to three fingers sideways between your horse's face and the muzzle. This is our most popular design because it is so easy to use and costs less than purchasing a separate breakaway halter.
 
The rubber bottom in the grazing muzzle is approx. 1/4" thick. 
 
  • Your horse is happier as a result of not being kept away from both his grass and his outdoor buddies.
  • Your horse can get the required exercise. (The average horse covers one mile per hour while grazing.)
  • Disease prevention is easier and less expensive than a visit by the vet.
  • All synthetic materials make it lightweight, rot resistant and well-ventilated.
  • Padded noseband helps resist rubbing and chafing.
  • Most durable, comfortable and safest grazing muzzle available. 
  • Recommended by John Lyon’s Perfect Horse and The Horse Journal.
  • Reduces bedding bill and stall-cleaning time.
  • You have peace of mind knowing your horse is happier and healthier.

Haflinger needs this to keep from founder

How far from the horse 's nose do you place the muzzle?
First Name L on Jul 1, 2014
Best Answer: It fits my Haflinger gelding with about an inch between his nose and the grazing muzzle. He is a much happier guy, as now he can go out with the other horses. I do weave a small braid behind his poll and attach it to the top of the halter with string to prevent him from rubbing it off over his ears. So far it has stayed on. I do notice the hole at the bottom of the muzzle is getting a bit larger (lol).

Does this allow a good intake of air?
bob r on Dec 5, 2014
Best Answer: I have used this exact muzzle for my gelding in the summertime in Texas and he seemed to do fine and is also able to get water through it. We do not leave it on 24/7 though as it does rub hair off after a while. They work for limiting grass intake and in my opinion in the case of laminitis can be lifesavers!! Also have two similar ones in miniature horse size tgayvdo just fine on my fat little ones!

I was just recommended a muzzle for a mammoth donkey who is a big guy at 14 1/2 hands. We have too much grass in our pasture and locking him up for the entire season (due to his somewhat chronic tendency for laminitis) is difficult. Especially because our Jennae, is a regular sized donkey who has never had problems. Any ideas on what size muzzle I should get for him? Thank you

Best Answer: Here is the sizing information:
Cob: Large ponies or small horses, such as Morgans or Arabians, 500-800 lbs, 13-14 hands
24" circumference x 7" depth
Horse: Average Size horses, such as Quarter Horses, 800-1100 lbs, 15-16 hands
26" circumference x 7 1/2" depth
Large Horse: Warmbloods and large-faced horses, 1100-1600 lbs, 17 hands and over
28" circumference x 8" depth
The muzzle should be adjusted so you can fit a finger on each side, and the bottom should be about one inch from the lips. Please keep an eye on him when first worn, as many animals will either not drink or take a long time to figure out how to drink while wearing this muzzle.

I need a muzzle for a mini horse. Would the deluxe sheep one work? He likes to bite me when I pony him.
Lisa W on Sep 14, 2014
Best Answer: Best Friends make a stall muzzle, that is designed for what you want to do. "Best Friend Soft Stall Muzzle" costs about 16.00. I see that horse.com doesn't carry it. So you will might have to find a different location that does. Just Google "Best Friend Soft Stall Muzzle" or
call horse.com to see if they can get it for you. This one comes in different sizes, and
designed to keep horses from biting you and stallions in breeding to keep them from
biting the mares.

If the size is too big, would I be able to make it smaller by punching some holes on the halter pieces?
A shopper on Mar 28, 2014
Best Answer: We have a large Welsh pony and last year we borrowed a horse size muzzle from a friend. We were abl to make it fit him by sjortening the crown and cheek pieces. They do not have holes - just a buckle that the strap slides through (on the crown as well as the sides). The basket over his nose on the horse size ws a bit big butit stil did the job. This year we bought him the muzzle in the cob size and it fits perectly. Bottom line: the muzzle has a lot of room for adjustment, and even our larg pony could wear the horse size, though the cob fits him better.

Hope that helps!

How to keep this muzzle on a Houdini horse? He's an Appaloosa, so can't attach to his mane. Thanks for any ideas!
52TrailGal on Mar 30, 2014
Best Answer: You may want to try a tougher more heavy-duty type.

I hope this helps!
