Horses are made to graze 20 hours a day, and rest only 4 hours. However, in our modern rich pastures, horses and ponies can easily become obese with only a few hours of grazing per day. This leads to serious health problems, including:
- Insulin Resistance (with much difficulty losing weight)
- Laminitis (or founder, where the feet become severely inflamed, often leading to permanent lameness or even death)
- Cushing’s Disease (with many health complications)
Muzzles are the best way to allow horses to continue to graze and be in pastures with their friends and herd mates. This is the most natural way for your horse to live; it reduces stress, and increases the amount of exercise your horse gets. The alternative is to lock your horse up in a dry lot, which is a lonely, stressful place to live.
Conventional grazing muzzles often do more harm than good: improper fit + poor ventilation + discomfort = an unhappy horse. The Harmany Muzzle solves these problems! Designed by leading holistic veterinarian Dr. Joyce Harman, the Harmany Muzzle molds to individual head shape and offers 25-50% more breathing room. Kevlar® construction insures lasting durability.
