This is Acorn. He is a 19 yr old pony. He, as most ponies do, gets fat if you look at him the wrong way.
He has been out on pasture - not lush, lots of weeds and brush, but there is plenty of grass, too - 24/7 for the past few weeks, and this is almost the same size he was keeping through the winter on 2 flakes of med. Quality hay and a handful of safechoice daily.
I started taking him off the grass of the day and letting him out in the PM and back up in the AM about 3-4 days ago.
I'd like some feedback on his weight today since I look at him all of the time, as does my husband, and altough I know he is clearly heavy. . . Should I keep him off grass at all, just let him out a few hours? Grazing muzzles haven't worked in the past since he will find a way to hurt himself on them. . .trying to eat through them, to get them off, etc.
