A Pony With a natural 'Pump' Belly ? Or Over weight ?
So Honor my pony is confusing me alot ! She always looks really plump towards the back of her tummy. She has a nice little front end and bum. She is just under 14 hands. She barrel races and trail rides has a pretty easy life. She is 16 years old. Only get's a tiny amount of feed due to this problem.
My Problem: She looks really over weight from the girth to the hind legs. It almost looks like her ribs are pushing her sides out. Ill try and post a picture of it this week. She does get worked annd really should not be over weight for the work she does. Her feed is closely watched. I was told it looks like she was a broodmare at one point. But I have only had her for about 4 years.
Is this caused from being a broodmare ? Is she naturally a WIDE pony ?
-Sorry if this makes little sense. I really don't understand how to explain it !
SHE HAS BEEN DEWORMED .
