Well, the feed change may be the cause. Or, it may not... tough to say. My older TB mare will have a loose manure every now and then and I can't pin down what causes it - although I think it's something she eats in the field.
My filly would have more piles in her stall, even when she was only a few months old. But, she's a hoover. If yours isn't eating all of his hay, then I wouldn't be too concerned. Just keep an eye on him.
Is he drinking well?
