    What does everyone use their miniatures for? I'm 5'5" so riding one for me would be out of the question, but if I was going to get one, it would be more than just a lawn ornament.... so what can they be used for?

    I believe that the mini's are used for driving. Little teeny carts and sulkies. And mowing the lawn maybe?

    I LOVE MY MINI, HE IS A 4 MONTH OLD BAY AND WHITE COLT NAMED CASH, LIKE JOHNNY CASH. SO FREAKIN SWEET. HE LIVES MOSTLY INSIDE, RIDES IN THE CAR JUST FINE. LOVES TO DRINK FROM A BOTTLE(LIKE A SPOPRTS BOTTLE WITH NO LID). HE LOVES ATTENTION AND TO BE THE CENTER OF IT. LOVES PEOPLE. I TRIM HIS HOOVES AND HE HANDLES IT PRETTY GOOD. I FEED HIM A COUPLE OF HANDFULS OF STEAMED CRIMPPED OATS WITH HIS ALPHALFA. HE IS NOT NIPPY, NOR DOES HE KICK. PAWING SEEMS TO BE HIS HABBIT OF CHOICE. I DO HAVE A QUESTION...WHEN SHOULD I HAVE HIS TEETH FLOATED FOR THE FIRST TIME? PLEASE LET ME KNOW. HE IS STILL CUTTING TEETH IN THE FRONT. WHEN I CAN FIGURE OUT HOW TO UP LOAD PICS I WILL LET EVERYONE SEE MY LITTLE BUNDLE OF JOY!!!
