This happens to be what my mare has. Lol. We were riding down the roan on our way back from a family friends bday party (were we gave rides and she was amazing, even around the giant blow up water slide) and this mini horse comes running up tgo the fence on the opposite side of the road. My mare see's him after he's at the fence and already stopped. At first she's cool. And then the little guy shakes his head. OMG! You woulda though he grew fangs and was about to pounce on her! Hahaha! She spooked the worst since I have had her. (Not really that bad at all but for her....) It made me laugh so hard! I must say I was not expecting her to be scared of the cute mini horse. What a dork.

My mares afraid of minis too. I think she doesn't know what to make of them. Its especially terrifying if they are pulling a cart.

My horse is terrified of anyone under 5 feet, mostly young children, bouncy, bubbly, giggling 5 year olds send my horse flying, even if he's had a good eye on then for a while.

Haha at my old barn there was a pony who was around 11hh, and he was (obviously) the smallest pony at the barn. One time we went to a show and he and his owner came along. Well, in one of his flat classes there was a pony who was about 10hh and he could NOT stop staring at her - it was the funniest thing! He was standing next to her and he had his neck cranked around staring at her, he just couldn't believe that there was a smaller horse than him! So funny.

Horses are as weird as humans. And yes, geese are evil.

My friend's horse is 16hh and he loves minis and foals and little horses lol. Its kinda cute but funny to see how he watches my filly like he's her big brother or something.

I don't blame you two! I have bruises from geese. Then my numbskull dog tried to chase them at the pond and he ended up haulin' tail back tot he barn with the entire flock on his tail. Those wings are strong!

It would seem Cinny has this too. Yesterday my daughter rode her friends Shetland in the arena while I was riding Cinny....he came absolutely UNGLUED!! It was kinda funny though.
