Grazing Restrictions

In order to stop Evas ever expanding belly – and as I am unable to move fields – I decided a grazing muzzle was necessary to bring about some control. You can read Eva’s thoughts on the situation here.

However she appears to of found away to get around this “confinement” of hers….










How has she done this !?! ๐Ÿ˜‚

I have to hold my hands up and say well its not what I wanted but its a pretty smart way around it! I have seen her walking around with her nose on the ground, actually dragging her nose on the ground. My only assumption is that this is how she has done it!

I am refraining from buying a new one just now as I am attempting to keep to a budget, therefore I would rather the funds go towards lessons e.c.t than a muzzle that I will probably stop using over winter as she will be stabled.

While it is not as effective as before it still has some restriction therefore I will be still putting it on, much to her displeasure.

  1. There is definitely such a thing as too easy keepers. My mini is pretty good for his breed, but he still needs a muzzle. Fortunately after I added a few extra attachments to the halter and cut some holes to make it into an easy breathe muzzle he has settle down. Maybe try cutting holes so she can breathe easier in it? I know that bothers a lot of horses.


    1. It has quite a lot of holes in it already I feel if I cut somemore she might be able to take it apart and I wouldnt out that past her. She generally seems fine in it – other than pissed off that I am stopping her from eating her body weight in grass everyday ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ
