I have two horses the same ages. My little guy has a belly, its harder to work it off a young horse without over working him. We're checking to make sure its not worms right now. They live outside 24/7 and I don't see them play too much in the winter, and I don't ride the 11 year old because she's not 100% sound. I feed good quality alf. Pellets and beet pulp with some 12%. My mare gets about what the little guy gets and I don't notice a belly on her at all, just the little guy. Its very simmilar to getting a man getting a pot belly. Just make sure they still get the nutrients they need.
