I love my minis. For the most part it seems like miniatures are quite smart and very brave little critters, mine aren't at all afraid of my dogs or just about anything for that matter. They're also fantastic at teaching horse body language and how they think, I think minis are a perfect way to start out with owning your own horse because they're so non-threatening - if a big horse bit or kicked at you, it can be really intimidating and possibly make you afraid of them. If it a mini bites or kicks, it's more like "hey, quit that!" - they can still be dangerous and it's still bad behavior, but it's not as scary as the full-size version.
