Mini's?

What do you do with your minis? Do you just have them as pets? For shows? To pull carts?

I don't have any and have never had one so I was just wondering. They are cute though

I have a mini that I show. I take him in halter and driving classes. This year I am going to work on showmanship and jumping in hand. Minis can be lots of fun.

I bred minis. They were all registered and some had been shown prior to me owning them.
Are you looking at getting one? What are you wanting to do with them?

No I'm not looking to get one I was just wondering. I noticed a lot of people on here have them and I just wanted to know what they did them since they can't ride them.

I've always wanted to show them. Like with driving and halter. Never knew about mini-jumping until recently.
I always wondered how you would board them at like...a boarding facility though. They'd be to tiny for a stall...

I don't think they would be too tiny for a stall...you would just have to lower the feed and water so they can reach. Actually...I think they would enjoy it more than a big horse... A luxury suite if you will...

There have been mini's at almost every place I've boarded at and they are in normal stalls just like regular horses :) I'm sure they do love it because its bigger to them!
