    Maura, yes. I thought I'd put that in my original post, but I'm on my phone so it's a pain to check... Where she is kept at, all the field-kept horses get tied to a post to eat their breakfast in the morning. It isn't fair to make her stand and watch all the other horses eat when she gets nothing; I wouldn't want her to have to, and my BO won't let her get nothing. Last year she was on about 5 handfuls of sweet feed, and was still fat as anything. This year she's on a supplement to help prevent ulcers (she's extremely prone to stomach issues, and gets diharrhea rather often year round) so she needs to recieve a small amount of grain in order to eat her supplement. When I say small, I mean she is on the least amount of grain of the 45 horses there. I'm not sure of exact weight, but its still only a few handfuls worth.

    What I'm saying, is she does need to eat grain. I absolutely do not agree with a lot of thing that occur where I board, and if it was up to me she would be on grass only a few hours a day, and in a "pony field" the rest. However I'm 14- what I say clearly doesn't matter to the adults who work there. The people who feed can't be bothered with taking off a muzzle and putting it back on, so unless I can be there every morning at whatever time they decide to feed, I don't think it's going to be possible for her to have a muzzle...
