    What's a grazing muzzle's purpose. I probably sound pretty foolish asking that, but I wouldn't know what to do with it. :P I'm planning on getting a vet to check him out anyways, so I may just add that on.
    Thanks for the advice. :)

    My horse was like she's in foal last year (in fact we thought she really way). She had very limited grazing but 24 hours access to the hay. And hay had lots of clover. She lost weight when I moved her and she can't chew hay all day long.

    Grazing muzzle is something looking like dogs muzzle. It has holes in it, so horse has just limited access to the grass and/or hay. So limits # of pounds he can eat. :)

    :roll: Grazing muzzels are pretty cruel though, the horse isn't EXTREMALLY overweight so I don't see what the problem is !!

    Grazing muzzles are not cruel at all. Just like Kitten said, they clip to the halter and limit the amount of grass the horse can eat. The horse can still be turned out with pasture buddies & graze like normal.

    I think a vet check is a very good idea.

    You look like you've got some nice "hills" there...use them to your advantage. It'll get him in shape in no time.
