Thanks, I pretty much gave up on the muzzle, it's difficult as on the track there is very little grass and the hay is given in nets with very small holes so he basically can't eat, he just needs it if he escapes, then when I found it attached to the hay net it worried me about him getting caught up.I don’t know if you’ve tried these but I found they worked for me! I tied a bit of string from the front of the muzzle side to side (so like a loop) then another bit to the top between the ears from it like an upside down Y shape. This prevented the muzzle being pushed over my ponies nose and hanging round his neck whilst he scoffed!
The other thing I did was to put a strand of electric rope zig zagging from the top of one post to the bottom of the next and so on. It creates more of a solid look and bubbles tended to be far more wary.
I tried more strands, more posts etc. none of it bothers Dan, he just shimmies under the fence
I'm trying to see it as a fun challenge now, a competition between us, every day I keep him where he is meant to be is a win for me Anything is better than letting myself get annoyed by it.This is like a soap opera lol. Can't wait for the next episode.
