I purchased this product for my horse a couple years ago when he had laminitis. Not only did it allow him to go out with the herd and live a quality life, this muzzle has great placement holes for easy breathing and comfort. My horse keeps this muzzle on (I have to have the strap underneath snug). This was my replacement muzzle (same muzzle) for the one we purchased then. He’s worn it 24/7 for turnout for over a year and it held up but was starting to show signs of wear. Thanks for a great muzzle!
