The pasture she is in has tons of lush spring grass and she is out there 24/7. Perfect recipe for founder - right?! I have no place to make a dry lot for her. It isn't my field - a neighbor lets me keep her there. I really don't want to stall her so I got her a grazing muzzle.
She was fine when I put it on. She is an easy going, very sweet mare and didn't fight at all. I pushed grass up through the hole to give her the idea and left in on for about half an hour. Next time I left it on one hour. I've put it on 3 times so far and she really isn't getting the idea too well. She slides it along the ground a few times and then walks to her shelter and mopes. I feel so sorry for her.
Any suggestions please?
