One of my geldings wears one when he's getting too plump from the pasture.
I have one that has the halter built in. He's never gotten it off before but it took me some time to get the correct fit. I leave it on while he's in the pasture (at night in the summer) and take it off while he's in the stall. (During the day due to bugs and hot weather)
He pouts most of the time while it's on, he can still eat and drink with it. No problems. It takes a few weeks to notice results. Mostly I see lack of weight gain as opposed to dropping weight. We stay at a steadier pace with maintaining weight. If he was worked more, it'd melt off. But he's only ridden once every 2-3 weeks, if that.
