    It depends on the pony! A stocky, hefty pony is naturally going to weigh more than a finer-boned, slender individual even if they both are 14hh. Do you have a picture? I'm no good at estimating, but if you put a picture of the pony up, someone may be able to give you a rough idea of what he/she should weigh.

    I'd say 750-900lbs on average. If it's a really big boned drafty pony, even more.

    Given the pics, I'd say pony butt needs a bit of a diet :p I think with that body type she (?) Should weigh in at 900lbs tops.

    I don't think she's necessarily fat, but she could use a lot of muscling up. She should probably weigh around 900 lbs. How much does she weigh?

    Hmmmmmm, are you sure he's 14H? My Arabian walker (built on the lighter side) is 900 and he's 14H.

    Well in that case, maybe a lot of aerobics to slim down the tummy and build the muscles.
