My pony always becomes fat during the summer because our grass is so rich where we live. He gets about half of a scoop of senior feed in the evening and that is it. I don't feed him any more or any hay because I fear he may founder. During the winter I half to give him almost two scoops of feed and hay in the morning and night and he still drops alot of weight and his ribs show badly but anyways.. right now he is REALLY fat. I know he has a grass belly because he gets it every summer. But this summer his ribs are still showing a bit. This has never happened in past summer so anyone know what gives? I'm thinking maybe worms, but he gets wormed regularly. I was thinking of maybe doing a Panacur Powerpac on him because I know some people who have had horses with ribs showing and it helped them gain weight back. Should I try it?
