    What's so funny? I asked for a critique and if somebody has an opinion I want to know why. I'm not trying to cause a war. Just see what more people think and can elaborate on than just what I see.

    I'd rather people tell me what they think/feel then me not see something that needs changed. If it IS something that I know needs changed, then great. We're on the same page. If not, then great. I know something else that needs changed.

    My herd will never improve if I don't know everything that needs changed.

    Plus, I *try* not to get butt hurt. I think I'm doing pretty good considering the fact that somebody said that I don't deserve to own horses. That's their opinion. Not mine obviously. Nor my parents'; since they're adiment (spelling?) about keeping our current herd.

    *I* think I've done well. I've gotten my entire herd back up to weight and I'm having the vet out soon for floating. That's pretty dang awesome since I'm doing something my parents' never thought of doing. (They still don't know what floating is, but I've talked it even to stress the importance of it.)

    Eeek! Sorry, lol. My bad.

    That was mostly directed at ilovemyphillip. Not you, but I quoted you since you said pretty much the truth.

    I was being serious. I thought it was funny. I took it that you meant it sarcastically, thumbs up and all ;) and sarcasm tends to make me laugh. I also wasn't trying to start a war...

    I never thought about farriers not wanting to do mini's hooves? Maybe someone should sell miniature rasps & such

    On a serious note, is there anything you can do for her belly? Have you talked to the vet at all about it? It could help her athleticism and general comfort.

    Yep, lol. Because of height and attitude mostly. A lot of minis are kind of bratty. I've worked with mine and there's only 2 that don't mind. Two out of 7. (Still haven't added a yearling to my Horse list. So, not to mislead anybody!)

    Depending on what's causing it, maybe. I'll be having my vet out in a couple weeks to do teeth.

    Its like, I can handle the training, foaling (watching, lol), vet, feeding, research, care, but farriery is a HUGE responsibility and I have to find a really good one. That and one that is willing to trim seven minis. I don't want to mess up!
    Yes, farriers are a huge responsibility, but so is everything else you are doing (training, breeding, feeding, etc.). I have been trimming my own horse's hooves for many years now, and they are trail ridden barefoot and are sound and doing really well. So it's not an impossible thing for an owner to do.

    While you want to get the best farrier you can, there is also a danger in letting the feet get too long. I think it would be better to get a imperfect trim than none at all. Just my opinion though.

    I don't know a single farrier who would refuse to work with the mini. However I know farriers who would refuse to work with the bratty horse any size (and would be right IMHO). It's not about attitude or height, but about training (which is always the owner's responsibility). Attitude (aka lack of training) is not a good excuse to have no farrier care. BTW, you can learn to do trims (or at least touch-ups) youself - not very easy, but something good to know if there is too much time between farrier visits.

    In my opinion, just because minis are fluffy and cute does NOT entitle anyone to breed them like hamsters. There is a huge problem with overbreeding horses and so many horses are ending up at sales because there just arent enough homes for them- and again, this is just my opinion- but I believe that keeping a mare pregnant for most of her life is not fair to her (like PMU mares). Breeding should be taken seriously, and not be treated as a hobby or a way to make a quick buck. (hopefully that's not necessarily what you are doing but I see no reason for that little mare to have had that many consecutive babies)
