Grazing muzzle rubbing help
My Haflinger mare is being a challenge when it comes to wearing her grazing muzzle and not getting sores.
Any ideas are great appreciated.
I started with a Weaver brand size medium grazing muzzle. The muzzle bowl part was a little smaller around than I thought it should be but the halter part fit well.
She wore it one day and ended up with a round raw spot on the point of 'chin' (lower lip, underneath) the size of a quarter.
I decided the muzzle bowl was just too small and it had rubbed her.
I bought her a Best Friends cob size grazing muzzle. Muzzle bowl is much larger. I had a hard time making the halter part fit her right but added an extra clip and it worked fine.
With this muzzle she came in with two rub spots near her jaw bone from the top of the muzzle bowl rubbing as she grazed.
I can not see an easy way to cover the edge of the muzzle bowl with something so it does not rub.
Again, any ideas appreciated.
