Mini Poop!
You all are going to think I'm crazy for asking this, but how many times per day do your minis poop?

I'm a long time horse owner, but just got my first mini a few days ago. She only poops 3-4 times per 24 hours. They seem like normal sized piles for a horse her size and are of normal color and consistency. My larger horses poop more often than this, so it has me slightly puzzled.

Thank you for any input you have! :wink:

Sounds pretty normal to me. My mini mare leaves me 3-4 piles a day. It really just depends on how much forage/grain they're taking in and when.

Sounds normal to me. My mini only poops that much also. He gets 1 flake of hay and no grain a day.

Totally normal, our Mini (recently gelded) leaves about the same, and only in the last couple of weeks does he spread it out and not poop "stallion style". The most he's done in a day is 4, the least is 2.
