While I am very happy with Chewy and the service I get, the Tough grazing muzzle should be called the rub off muzzle. My horse has EMS and cannot be allowed to over graze. After using the muzzle for only a few days Benny simply rubbed it off. The quick release strap was intact but the muzzle almost completely torn off. Upon inspection, the thread looked to be cotton, not designed for such a task. I put it back together using epoxy glue and a friend put rivets all the way around on the connection points and replaced the inadequate baby rivets used on the strap which also did not hold. The design is nice, the construction flawed and inadequate.
I ordered this to replace my previous tough-1 deluxe muzzle for my mini. The deluxe for thin perfectly. I assumed since this was the same brand, that the sizing would be consistent. Unfortunately it is way too big for my mini, big enough that he would certainly be able to get a foot stuck. There isn’t a smaller option here :(
After about 12 hours, my mare (who had previously been grazing comfortably) managed to rip the side of the halter where it attaches to the muzzle. I went out to find the muzzle hanging around her neck. Not very durable.
This is the second mask I've purchased in the last 10 years. They are super good quality. I purchased the mini muzzle for my new boy. It fits him well and has a lot of adjustments. He has a rather thick muzzle/ head, but the last one fit my mare and she had a short head. I'd measure if your horse has a skinny head as it may be a bit large. Anyhow, I absolutely love it and I still can't believe how quickly it was delivered!!! Yeah Chewy!!!
