    Default Grazing Muzzles

    I have searched here about them but would like to know if there is a consensus about which one is the best.

    I see the Best Friend and Easy Breathe both mentioned. The latter looks like it has a bigger hole in the bottom.

    I like the Easy Breathe one better for Willie for the summer - not as hot, and he certainly has an easier time breathing in it than the Best Friend model. The hole in the bottom is definitely bigger. My farrier cut a clear plastic sole pad to the right shape, cut an inch diameter circle in the bottom, and secured it to the bottom of the muzzle with copper rivets. Willie can breathe better, but is not getting much grass through the hole in the bottom now.
