Many of the stockier breeds are much easier to keep weight on than leaner breeds like Thoroughbreds. My miniature and miniature/shetland foals require very little maintenance. They get hay twice a day and stay plump. Does your foal get regular exercise from turnout? What is his diet like? It's likely he's just growing into himself, so if he's not overly fat, I wouldn't worry too much.
