Watching horses adjust to their GreenGuard Grazing Muzzle

Whenever we get the chance to try our muzzles on a new horse, it's interesting to see the different way they react to the experience.  Today, we were taking pictures of two horses in a GreenGuard Grazing Muzzle. These two horses reacted very differently, leading us to think about how individual each horse is, and how great it is that the GreenGuard Grazing Muzzle can be adjusted to accommodate each of them.  The first horse of the day was Chex, a 10-year old quarter horse gelding. Chex is an easy-going guy, out on pasture 24-7. We slipped a halter with...

The square design gives your horse room to breathe because it puts lots of open space in the corners...

Should I add fleece to prevent rubbing?

Should I add fleece to prevent rubbing?

We recommend holding off on using fleece when you are first trying your GreenGuard Grazing Muzzle. There are several reasons for this. First and foremost, if the GreenGuard muzzle is fitted correctly and the appropriate size, it should not rub. For more information on a proper fit, see our Fitting Guidelines, as a too-small muzzle with the straps adjusted too short is the most common cause of rubbing, which can be corrected without the use of fleece. Also see our Rubbing Issues: Most Common Culprits article for more on the most common problems.  Fleece can sometimes cause more problems than...
