See  article on www.hygain.com.au/horse-candidate-grazing-muzzle/ on the fitting and use of grazing muzzles.

Please note:  Please consider the safety of your horse when leaving any halter or muzzle on it in the pasture. Muzzles are not meant for long term use on unnattended horses, but should only be applied for short periods to prevent excessive grazing. 

Muzzles should be used in combination with a suitable diet so that although grazing is restricted when the horse is in the muzzle, the horse still receives vital nutrients and roughage at other times.

Below is an article on the best way to introduce your horse/pony to life with a grazing muzzle.
