we've just startesd loaning a shetland pony and when he's trotting he seems to puf and pant as if unfit!
the thing is he doesn't sweat up so i'm not sure it is a fitness thing, habit or illness.
he seems otherwise fine he's eating and when he runs round the field he doesn't seem to do it!

any ideas anyone, never come across this before, not sure whether its a shetland thing or what!!!!!!!!!!!!

That does seam rather odd if he is ok when running around in the feild!

I think i would give his tack a thorough look over and check its all fitting properly.
