I might be getting a mini, and since I've never owned one I have some questions.
If I do get this mini, he will be out on pasture 24/7. The pasture is ok right now, not great, which is fine for a mini, and he would have access to hay all the time. Would I even need to give him even a little grain? I'm thinking he would be fine without. I don't want him getting chunky! Come better weather when the grass is richer, depending on our pasture, I won't hesitate to put a grazing muzzle on him.
Are there any physical problems minis are prone to?
How difficult is it to maintain weight on them? This mini would be getting worked as much as my horse, of course his training program would be altered lol.
Hmm, I had more, but now I can't remember them! Any other info would be greatly appreciated!
