How to get horse used to stocking over muzzle?
My mare is a headshaker and I am working on ruling out possible causes. I think she may be having some allergy problems and have heard that putting pantyhose over their muzzle can help tremendously. I made an nose net out of pantyhose, however, my mare is NOT having it! She tries to blow it off with her nostrils or chomp at it.
Any ideas on how to get my mare used to this? Really, I just want to see if the stocking helps. If I could get her to tolerate it long enough for me to lounge her and see if it stops the shaking, I would take it off and immediately purchase a more expensive nose net. I just need this as a diagnostic tool.
