This muzzle has really been great for my Arabian gelding. With all of the rain we have had this spring, my Arab was having laminitis issues. This muzzle fits him well and once he got used to it, he wears it all of the time that he is out in the pasture. Finally he can join the other horses without laminitis pain. This is the second one of this particular muzzle that I have bought. I wanted an extra to use when one is wet or dirty.

Pretty well made. Like the double Velcro fastener. My chubby little mare picked up the eating technique quickly, so little effort to scrape it off. I've got a gelding though, that I know would do whatever it took to get it off. So know your horse's temperament. Also, when putting the muzzle on, I stuck a piece of carrot up the hole in the center. She brought her head down to get it and that kept her occupied while the muzzle was fastened.

This product has great features.
The cob sizing is accurate & I like the fleece feature making the muzzle more comfortable for my horse.

Within two days my horse has rub sores in four different places on his face. I thought I made the right decision with all of the padding but it obviously did not help! I'm now looking for a grazing muzzle that will attach to his halter.

Well not the best
Okay after making a couple of alterations to these muzzles they work fine. But they are buggers to adjust to fit a normal horse size horse or smaller.

great product
This muzzle is easy to put on & easy to adjust the size to fit different horses. I have a TWH with a large head & another with more of an Arabian head & the muzzle adjusts easily to fit either one of them. They have been wearing them for a couple of weeks now & are unable to get them off.

Great little Muzzle
Great product - padding works well - just be aware of the COB size only. Fits Arabians, small quarter horses too.Easy to fit
September 12, 2015
very nice product
First time using this product. It was easy to fit and my horse did not seem to mind it. I can't leave it on for long because it holds the heat. In SC where there is high humidity and temperatures, it becomes uncomfortable for my horse.

Works Great!
My horse has metabolic syndrome and can no longer eat grass in spring and fall. However I don't want to keep her from the freedom of the pasture. This muzzle is working great to limit her intake of that sweet grass. It hasn't left any rub marks and she can't get it off.

Will it make my pony's nose sore to wear this grazing muzzle?
A shopper on Aug 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I bought the Shires Muzzle because of the padding around it and if I remember correctly it was a few dollars less that the Best Friend Muzzle. I have to use muzzles on all five of you horses. Of the five muzzles, four Best Friend and the one Shires, the Shires broke first. It didn't last two weeks. Now that's not to say the others haven't broken, but not as quickly. It just didn't seam as sturdy. As far as making your pony's nose sore, if you don't have it too tight it shouldn't rub it too badly. The instructions advise to gradually build up the length of wear time, which I do. I eventually leave it on them 24/7, especially in the spring and early summer or if you get lots of rain and the grass stays plush. Buy the end of the summer they are all pretty much worn out though. The quarter size hole in the bottom becomes half dollar size! Hope this helps!
Will the small pony size fit a miniature donkey?
Ashley S on Jul 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure about the pony size for this muzzle as I bought the horse size. I was not pleased with the Shires Duluxe as it broke in about two weeks. I liked the white padding on it as with had to be more comfortable for my horse but it would not stay on. It came off the second day I had it on her so I tightened it extremely tight and it stayed as I said for about two weeks. I have used Best Friend muzzles exclusively and have been pleased. I only tried the Shires because it was cheaper and had the padding. I ordered another Best Friend for her and she has worn it for 2 months now. I have them on four of my horses because of the large pasture with abundant grass.
For our small POA I order the cob size. I am not sure about the pony sizes. Sorry I could be anymore help.
Will this fit my Belgian draft?
Natasha B on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It will not. This is a draft size.
The Best Friend Deluxe Grazing Muzzle with Halter may fit him. It is for warmbloods and large-faced horses, 1100-1600 lbs, 17 hands and over. It is 28" circumference x 8" depth:

is there a video which shows how to adjust and fit muzzle ?
A shopper on Dec 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We purchased 2 of them. There was no instructional video that we were aware of but adjusting them was not overly complicated. They have the plastic sliding adjustment buckles to adjust length. We left about an inch and a half of room between the horse's lips and the hole. The basket is roomy and soft, but the rubber part with the hole wears out pretty quickly. The Velcro closures also get clogged with dirt and grass . This product did not rub and was comfortable, but it is hot in summer.
Would this work to stop a horse from eating acorns? My horse gets toxicity from eating acorns so I am going to cut all the trees out of my pasture if I can not fine another solution
lee b on Jan 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The hole is small. I don't see how a horse could eat too many acorns with it on. It would definitely be worth a try.
Is this a breakaway halter?
jc l on Apr 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The closures are all velcro instead of snaps and buckles, which is a pain because they get dirt and grass stuck in them. I'm sure the velcro would probably come loose if they got caught and pulled hard enough. It does not rub, though, which is why I bought it.
