Um pictures?

If you are talking about around the forearms and legs... yes they do get lots of veins that pop up. Especially after working them.

It also kinda depends on breed and bloodlines. TBs tend to be more veiny because their skin is really thin and some QHs are that way too.

We have a mare who has veins that bulge all over her face, she has bad veins from people... sticking needles in and not doing it right.... basically whats happened is the veins in her neck started to collapse. Therefore she cannot have any meds IV.

Im not saying this is what your pony has, im just saying it because I don't know if that can ever be something that happens naturally with some horses. *shrug*

We had a Saddlebred once who was high-strung and "hot."

He had a lot of veins popping out everywhere. Wonder if he had high blood pressure. Well, he lived a long life.
