I got Berdi a grazing muzzle about a month ago as she is very chubby. She is a very easy keeper and can get fat on air. LOL! Problem is she can't figure it out! She just stands around looking depressed half the time or walks around not trying to eat. I've poked grass through the hole, cut the hole bigger, put her head down on the ground and she still can't figure it out. I've left it on for between 8-10 hours a day too. And this has been going on for over a week that I've tried it steady.
I'm not worried that she's not getting enough to eat, however I've heard it isn't good for horses to go too long without something in their stomach. 8-10 hours is long and I would not want her to colic or something. Is there a danger of that?
Maybe I'll just have to give up the idea and try stalling her with her slow-feeder at night. Any ideas?
