Chubby ponies are always cute, but, believe it or not, sometimes they can be too fat. When horses and ponies spend all day outside in a pasture, sometimes they can consume too much grass. A common solution for this is using a grazing muzzle.

— Equine companies have come to understand the problems with traditional grazing muzzles, and they have created products that combat them. One of the best grazing muzzles on the market right now is the GreenGuard grazing muzzle.
If you know your horse hasn’t had issues with traditional grazing muzzles in the past, they can also be used to reduce grass consumption during pasture time. Some of these can be purchased from the following brands:
— Shires Deluxe Comfort Grazing Muzzle
— Tough 1 Easy Breathe Grazing Muzzle
— Weaver Leather Grazing Muzzle
Grazing muzzles can be a great tool to help horses reduce their intake of grass while in the pasture. Some horses and ponies get too round or are more likely to develop conditions like laminitis. These equines need a solution to limit their intake of grass, while still receiving adequate turnout.
