    If someone can go get her I will pitch in money. I can't stand to see this. She's a mini so I don't think she'll eat a whole lot.

    *sigh*

    I contacted the seller (who doesn't own the horse but acts as an agent). The actual owners do raise the breed. This youngster was recently pulled off the mare and wormed (reason given for the thickness of the coat currently).

    I showed the picture to a friend of mine who raises 'regular' minis and not what she calls 'super' mini's and this breed often looks 'mis-shapened' and she compared it to the famous little Thumblelina horse. Usually they go for a lot more than 350.00.

    So it's a super mini? I don't like those, poor little things. I was actually fixing to email and ask about her.

    I don't know what anyone else calls them but my friend calls them that. They are a whole other size level below mini's. She actually said it borders on neglectful breeding by actually 'creating' them at that size because they have so many health issues and generally their bodies ended up being hunched up.

    It's sad what people try to do. Course, they do it on the other side of the size chart trying to get 21+ hand horses which isn't good either!

    ETA: she must just be doing the online selling part because she directed me to talk to the owners if I had more questions.

    That's why I don't like them, I would be so worried about their health. Don't the tend to have shorter life spans too? Thanks for letting us know. If I had the money I would go and pick her up, but I don't sadly. Poor little baby, I hope someone who can take good care of her gets her.

    There are many breeders of minis in this area that have horses under 30". They look tons better then that, and it may be the hooves, but their conformation tends to be far superior. If you ask me, a good breeder will take care of a horse, despite of when it is weaned.

    ETA: The breeders around me do not typically breed for under 30". I was mistakend when I was always seeing ads for under 30 minis. The ones they do breed are very well conformed though, generally from what I see through the Miniature Horse Club of Ontario.

    It's difficult to get good conformation on these little guys. I've yet to see one that look 'normal'.
