Flexible Filly Slow Feed Grazing Muzzle
More like wearing a glove than a muzzle!
Flexible Filly slow feed grazing muzzles are a must for many horses but discomfort is not.
Try a natural grazing muzzle. Our research determined horses dislike muzzles because they cannot behave naturally in them. With the historical cage-like or bucket-like muzzles, horses are unable to engage in social activities like wither scratching or other playful interactions resulting in social and emotional health in horse herds.
This Flexible Filly slow feed grazing horse muzzle is unlike the typical cage-like apparatus of the past. We designed this to be softer, lighter, and less behaviorally restrictive. Constructed of a durable and pliable material that radically improves the horses’ feel. It is effective while also being soft on equine teeth and lips. The Flexible Filly Muzzle is well-ventilated and safe, rated to break just before your turnout halter. Additionally, the grazing hole size is adjustable, allowing you to offer the perfect grazing options.

Full-Time Grazing in a Muzzle:
Recently, many horse owners prefer to leave their horse on pasture in a grazing muzzle full time – 24/7, which has created a demand for a larger grazing opening. With an industry-standard opening of under 3 cm, the roughage intake is considerably limited. The digestion of a horse needs a minimum amount of dry matter to function properly and healthily. This minimum amount of dry matter is not achieved with a 24/7 restriction with an opening of 3 cm or less.
Owners should supplement feed in the form of hay, in order to guarantee the minimum intake in dry matter. Hay cannot be eaten, or only to a very limited extent, with an opening of under 3 cm, which means that the horse must actually be taken from the pasture, the muzzle taken off and then fed with hay and then back with a muzzle to the pasture.
There are very few muzzles that are really suitable for 24/7 grazing. The ThinLine Flexible Filly Grazing Muzzle offers a 2.5cm opening that can be easily resized with a pair of scissors (up to 3cm) to allow for full 24/7 use. Click Here to view a short video on how to enlarge the hole size.
Highly Restricted Grazing in a muzzle:
There is a lot of demand for a smaller hole for extremely limited grazing. Horses with laminitis, insulin resistance, or those on lush fields need careful management, and a 3 cm or greater grazing hole is too large to effectively protect them.
Therefore, ThinLine now offers muzzles with a 2.5cm grazing hole.
The Flexible filly equine grazing muzzle hole size is, you guessed it! Flexible!
The good news is, the flexible filly grazing muzzle limited hole size can be easily altered by horse owners for the perfect grazing opening. ThinLine now offers muzzles with a 2.5 cm hole. To create a larger hole simply mark your muzzle with a pen and use a pair of scissors to cut the size you need.

ThinLine Grazing Muzzle Materials:
This 6-ounce grazing muzzle, made from one of the most durable polymers on the planet. It is fungal, mold, and UV resistant. It is safe, effective, and durable. There are no “off-gassing” materials so they are safe near the nostrils. Even if accidentally ingested the polymers pass USA food safety regulations.
The muzzle is ideal for slowing down speedy eaters, limiting grazing, and can help curb minor cribbing problems. The muzzle can also keep horses from chewing on leg wraps, wood, or blankets. It works extremely well with all automatic waterers and has UV protection which works much like sunscreen for those delicate noses.
Maintenance: If your muzzle becomes discolored place it in a bucket with bleach and dish soap. Let it soak a few hours then scrub with a stiff brush.
