Reader Photo Challenge: Magical Muzzles

Here are 17 smooch-worthy muzzles.

This week we were inspired by Instagrammer @howtohorsemom’s photo of her horses’s summer muzzle. Based on the overwhelming response, it seems we’re not the only ones obsessed with our horses’ soft muzzles. So here are 17 muzzles that just make us want to go smooch our own horses.
