My 26 year old 13 hand pony moved into a big grass field for her retirement in November. She has never been on all grass before (she was on the side of a mountain for most of her life except when stalled) so I want to make sure she doesn't founder.
I have bought a grazing muzzle but I don't know how long it should stay on. I have never used one so if anyone has experience please share.
Unfortunately, even after 6 months, she doesn't truly trust the workers at the barn and I am the only one who can catch her easily (she was abused for 16 years) so I can't depend on someone being able to take it off for short amounts of time.
Please help, I'd rather her not have horrible rubs on her face, but if the alternative is foundering, that's not good either :(
Thanks in advance
