[RC] grazing muzzle for fat horse - kc85124

I'm worried about my older endurance horse gaining too much weight this spring 
I'm wanting to get some miles on the two younger ones and don't have time to 
ride him plus he is having some lameness issues and acting like it is time to 
be retired.   I'm worried about him getting too fat and risking founder.  Even 
our small pens have too much grass in the spring and would rather him be moving 
around in larger area anyway.  Any suggestions as to how to keep him from 
getting too fat?  Was wondering if anyone had used a grazing muzzle with any 
success and how long did you leave it on every day?  Do retired endurance 
horses founder easier than horses that have been pasture potatoes?  Thanks and 
happy trails, Kathy Crothers CT
