I have 15 mini's and seems what are good for some are not for others, I have a few that require more, than others, another... lack of protein is a cause for the classic pop belly look, possible wormy? Less is better with these guys, I feed a good quality alfalfa , and vitamins, and they each have a mineral lick and that's it...Keep it simple , is best, ...good luck...:)
I have a 6 month old, colt still..here...Pintoloosa, has decided he wants to eat sand, ..how he decided this was a good idea, who knows...:) He has been moved to a rubber floor pen ...and is doing better, put back out to pasture with the mares, ( all pregnant) and has no interest in it anymore, but now has a belly..Yes, he is on a serious sand clear schedule now...
All my mini's have tight tucked bellies, they get worked 2 times a week, and yes they hate it...
