omg I used to take care of some mini's at my next door neighbors house. Me and my friends each had our own. The neighbor said they were considered ours because we fed them,groomed them, and pretty much everything else with them. We were the only ones that messed with them. They were so cute but they got sold just last year because the neighbors are moving and all their kids are grown up. They went to a great barn though that is air conditioned. Wow I wonder what they look like now...but yeah I miss them so much. Oh and you have to be carefull with them they aren't as strong as regular horses and you have to remember that.
They are so lovely! There is a shetland at the end of my drive!! He's 17 years old but his owner doesnt really care for him he looks terrible I take him lots of treats he's bay and he's called "pon-pon"
I have a mini stallion. He's like a big pet dog as he's super sweet and loves to come in the house. He's also a great teaser for the big mares :). Anyone know someone looking to breed their mare in the TN area, send them my way.
He is adorable! Guess what?! We're moving next month to a place with 3 acres and an existing barn so I can have a horse of my own! I'm so excited! Do you think mini is a good horse for a novice? They're way less expensive anyway right?
It depends on the cost. The unregistered and the "R" registered ones are usually the cheapest. The "A" registered are more because usually they are smaller. The "A" registration is sometimes difficult to work with though. If you are just wanting a pet, I'd go for either the unregistered or the "R" as they are just as nice as the "A"'s.
Yeah I was wanting to look for an unregistered one. I don't care about pedigree (just that it's in good health) and it's ok if it's a little bigger than most; it's not like it's going to be a house pet (although that would be cool but my husband wouldn't go for it!)
