Safe and comfortable, Best Friend™ Grazing Muzzles are recommended by equine health professionals to prevent, as well as treat Laminitis, founder, and obesity. 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. The lightweight muzzles resist rubbing and chafing and will not rot. Best Friend™ Grazing Muzzles can also be used as a training tool to discourage bad habits such as nipping and cribbing. The body of each muzzle is made of soft, comfortable webbing with neoprene padding on the noseband to help prevent rubbing. The bottom is made of flexible and durable reinforced rubber. Breakaway feature that will hold in place under normal circumstances, yet will break away if a horse panics and struggles to free itself. This feature greatly reduces the risk of injury to the horse. The muzzles are entirely synthetic, and therefore rot-free and easily cleaned. To clean, simply hose off the dirt or swish the muzzle in a bucket of water. Each muzzle is packaged in a vinyl bag that is reusable as a grooming tote.
