Subject: gelding mini donkey growing belly quickly

Bert-man my 13 month old mini which I purchased 2 weeks ago seems to have a growing belly!! He was on little to no grass and eating grain 2x a day before coming to me. With me he was fed grain 1x a day and this week really none....he has lots of hick green st. Augustine to eat as well as grass hay at free will......
Is he just indulding cause he can or should I be concerned......his stool is normal.

Yes you should be worried. I am a horses shoer and people ask me this all the time. You should watch and see how much he is taking in. I will tell you why, because he can founder anmd then you have a big problem for a tiny animal. I also own minis and you should feed them about a puond of hay morning and nite. About a hald of a pound of grain a day. If he is in pasture then I would not get him any hay or grain. Having a mini to fat can be just as bad has having them to thin.
