I muzzle my mare just to be safe. She's a pony (14h) so I worry. She's not obese but a smidge overweight. When I muzzle her she doesn't gain or loose any weight so that's all that matters. I mean she plumps up a bit more cause of the grass but aslong as she ain't obese or foundering I'm okay. Lol

My gelding did get it off of her 2 or 3 times but nothing ever happend. Not to say something wouldn't happen to your horse but nothing ever happend to her. The grass also isn't very tall either but it does grow nicely!

My pig won't eat ANY hay if there is enough grass. The second there isn't "enough" grass to satisfy him, he'll eat whatever grass he can find and then plow through the hay. Doofus won't even touch Alfalfa if he has grass! It's not the quality of the hay either because when you go to take him out of the pasture he will grab as much of the hay as he possibly can on his way out the gate. Literally, he'll grab like 2 flakes worth and carry it to his stall, drop the pile and then start eating it.
