I have an 8 month old mini. I think he may be a little fat. Has quite a bit of a gut on him and he has been wormed so it can't be that.
I let him graze during the day but our pastures aren't spectacular. He gets a tiny bit of oats and Legacy vitamin supplement with his evening hay. I mean a tiny amount, not even a real handful.
My new hay concerns me. It was tested at 19% protein according to the guy I got it from but I don't know the sugar/carb content. I'm sure I can find out. Its wonderful quality hay but I'm worried it may be too good for my little guy.
He gets roughly a flake of this hay a day. Half in the AM and the rest at night. I'm getting him started on lunging but he's not really happy about it LOL.
