Definition of Easy Keeper

By

Definition: A horse that gains or maintains weight easily on the minimum required food is said to be an easy keeper. Many times an easy keeper will not need concentrates, or rich hay to stay in top (or even too fat) condition. Some easier keepers, especially ponies would benefit from a restricted diet to prevent obesity.
