Should I be worried?

My pony has a very cresty neck, and I'm wondering if I should be worried at all. She's a 3 year old American Mustang out of Nevada.

The are air ferns so they dont need a lot of food. I would cut back on her food before the crest falls.

I don't see crest, although she is by no means thin and the pictures aren't the best. What I do see is that she is more developed in her front than her hind.

Cutie horse. Lots of roughage, stay away from raw grains. Slow feed or ration her out & she'll be peachy.

Didn't see the pic but probably insulan resistant. Talk to your vet about proper feed for this condition. Even if they do not test positive for IR treating them with proper diet will help so they do not become IR
