As ponies age, they can become prone to laminitis, which can make feeding them tricky. Veteran ponies generally need feed to maintain weight but a high protein diet can cause episodes of dangerous laminitis.
So what can you do to make sure that your pony gets the nutrition he needs, whilst remaining in good health and free from the dreaded symptoms of laminitis?
Weigh your pony and feed accordingly
The first thing to remember is that you should feed your pony by his weight, not by his age alone.
