Grazing Muzzle?

The grass is getting green and lush again and wonder if because my horse Blaze has foundered before if I should put his grazing muzzle on him. What do you guys think?

Yes you should if he's Ok with it. Mine are sent crazy by them and spend the whole time trying to rub them off then get sore faces so I tend to restrict grazing by stabling for part of the day/night

Thanks for reply! I've thinking a lot lately about putting him on just so I don't have to worried since he's older. He's a pretty laid back guy so I don't think he'll flip out. I'll just put it on him before I ride my other gelding and see how he does.

I'm not being a smart alec but I am being hard core when I say, I should post the video of my horse when he first foundered.

It's a good reminder of why the grazing muzzles need to on horses that have foundered in the past or are easy keepers and will probably founder at some point in the near future.

Anytime I start arguing with myself about not putting the muzzle on, I pull up the video

And then there's all the extraneous work and money that goes into rehabbing that horse from founder.

So, don't even ask By the time the OP reads this, that muzzle had better be on the horse, unless it's pouring rain and 50 degrees

I just ordered one for Sky. He's not an easy keeper but he's been an entire year without good grass... and I don't want him to slurp it all down and get really sick.

Luckily they have dry lots where hay can be provided if needed.. but we'll see how the muzzle goes..
