So, here’s the Mini that my cousins are looking at to buy for their daughter/s (one is four, the other is a few months... my cousins are looking for a miniature for their four year old daughter for christmas, as the girl doesn’t want a big horse yet). We went up and visited today and got some more information on her.
Her name is Dolly and she’s about 33 inches tall and is 6 years old. She’s not registered. She’s been around kids before and will willingly take a bridle, though she’s never had a saddle on because her owners don't have a saddle small enough to go on her... no biggie, it's easy to get a horse used to a saddle, especially if they already know how to carry something or someone on their back. She does ride bareback and puts up with kids very well; she’d probably make a good lunge-line lesson horse.
She leads very easily and loves people. She’s likes to be scratched and petted and will rub all over you when you start scratching her. She’s been harnessed to a cart before and pulled it on her first try, though it’s unknown if she’s ever had any cart-training... most likely, though, she has when she was younger.
She is just a little mouthy, but not biter mouthy... more like looking for attention and wanting to be petted, kinda nibbling at your shirt or something to get your attention mouthy. (Easily fixed). She didn’t really like me messing under her belly at first, but didn’t try to kick, just moved away... after about half a minute, though, she was just fine.
She picks up all her hooves very well and is fine for you to mess with her mouth and anything else. My younger cousin led her around and petted her a lot, and Dolly was really good and gentle.
Her asking price is 300$, but my cousins are wanting to see if they can get the price down to 250$. If my cousins get her, they’ll be signing a contract stating that if they ever decide to sell her, they have to sell her back to her previous owners, as her owners stated quite plainly that they definitely would want her back.
I know that the pictures and angles aren’t great at all... but they were the best that I could get as it was getting pretty late when we got there. I included a lot of pictures, so that there’s plenty of angles.
