My friend constantly gives her pony treats, and it is really fat! If that were my horse, I'd probably never give it treats.
I'm not even kidding, if you went to score this pony's body condition, it'd probably be an 10 out of 10 all over!!... And it's already been foundered a couple years ago!!
If you think I'm being mean, get this: she leaves a bag of treats for him to eat while she's tacking him up, and he like takes mouthfuls! And her girth is the same size that I use for my pony who's at least 3 hands taller.
The pony's not mistreated in any way (besides the excessive treat-eating), he's just really really spoiled.
What should I do? Should I tell her not to feed it so many treats? I just don't want to sound bossy since she's not a whole lot younger than me.
