Best Friend™ Grazing Muzzles are recommended by equine health professionals to prevent Laminitis, as well as treat Laminitis, founder, and obesity.
The small opening in the bottom allows horses a limited amount of grass, yet unlimited water. Rather than being restricted to a non-grass environment to control intake, horses are free to exercise and socialize as part of the herd. The Best Friend grazing muzzles are lightweight, resist rubbing and chafing and will not rot.
The body of the Best Friend grazing muzzle is made of soft, comfortable webbing with neoprene padding on the noseband to help prevent rubbing. The bottom is made of flexible and durable reinforced rubber. Both designs have a breakaway feature that will hold in place under normal circumstances, yet will break away if a horse panics and struggles to free itself. This feature greatly reduces the risk of injury to the horse.
