One of the Mini's I recently, pretty much rescued, is not working out. She is slowly coming along but our personalities clash to much so I have decided to rehome her. I think she would do better in a home where someone can give her some one on one attention where as I have Arrow and Sanuye always butting her out of everything we do together but that's not the point of this post lol.. I put her up for sale. Wasn't asking very much for her and even put on the ad that she is a rescue and will be a long road to getting her where she needs to be. Well this lady is wanting a mini pretty bad. She has always been around horses and has wanted a mini.. She lives on a Dairy farm and currently has a 4 year old Standardbred mare that she is wanting to trade for Belles (mini).
Now she has told me that she has done a lot of ground training with her. She got her in June. The previous owners owned her since she was a year old. Has had the saddle on her and sat on her but nothing else. She's easy to catch, bath, load and things of that nature. She recently learned she was expecting and that's why she is wanting to get rid of her, but she wants a horse and said a mini would be perfect for her. The SB is supposed to be 14.3hh and 900lbs do yall think she will continue to grow up? How tall are they usually?
Now on to the actual point of this thread lol.. I have owned one Standardbred in my life and LOVED him, he was great.. But I had some questions about the breed and if anyone had any please post pics and tell me about them.
Are they easy to train? I got mine as a 6 year old already broke.. Are they generally easy keepers? The one I owned was but I was asking in case that was just him.
I know all horses are different but just wanted to see what others thought. Anything else you would want me to know feel free to tell me. Thanks so much.
