    Here is a great article for you to read:

    It may be that there is a metabolic condition that is causing this pony to remain fat. If that is the case, then adjusting the diet through the use of a grazing muzzle or dry lotting and feeting low non-structural carb hay is not only important for weight loss but also to help prevent laminitis.
