Ponies will do very well on either seed or meadow hay, but it must be of good quality. If you can only give one type of extra food, good, clean sweet-smelling hay will keep most cobs and ponies in good condition throughout the winter.

 

 

Ponies description:

A pony is a small horse (Equus ferus caballus) with a specific conformation and temperament. There are many different breeds of ponies. Compared to horses, ponies often exhibit thicker manes, tails and overall coat, as well as proportionally shorter legs, wider barrels, heavier bone, thicker necks, and shorter heads with broader foreheads. On occasion, people who are unfamiliar with horses may confuse an adult pony with a foal, which is a young, immature horse.
