I don't think Diamond is SO fat that he needs a grazing muzzle, I don't think he's THAT out of shape either. Not anymore then a couple of mine. I think you should talk to that girl though and tell her that you really would rather just ride your own horse for the road rides. Does she have an issue w/ not trusting Diamond? He's the one you said is bombproof isn't he? The bay? He's fat, but not obese. I wouldnt take his grass away, although... How tall and how lush is that grass? I think he's just an easy keeper...

I like mine on the plump side but I guess I just look at that photo and see a really big belly...... but in person I might think differently

Some horses just have bigger barrels too, like from the base of the neck to their butt. I think a grazing nuzzle would help though. But that's just me.

Anf plus I think being fat is better than being skinny. He used to be skin and bones!
