The grass is green, the sky is blue, spring showers are creating a world of gorgeous blooms.....everything is perfect! Well, not so much for the poor chestnut mare. Springtime means grazing muzzle.
I made some bright pink fleece covers to prevent rubs. N wanted to make sure if the muzzle came off or the pieces fell off she could find them. Last year my dark green ones....those blended well with the ground so several have been lost to be never found again. The fabric store had a perfect fleece scrap for me to buy, pink with flowers on it.
No matter the color, Dani hates it but she has to wear it during the day when the grass has the highest sugar content. Here's hoping she loses some weight and then maintains a good body weight or we may have to have her wear the thing for a longer period!
