    Miniature horse with horse.

    Hi there,
    I'm going to be moving onto a farm and taking my horse with me. He's currently being boarded at a stable. There only animals at the farm are cows so the plan is to move my boyfriend's dad's miniature horse to the farm as well. My questions is, is a miniature horse enough of a pasture buddy for a regular horse? What are your thoughts? Thanks:)

    It totally depends on the horses! Some horses are really freaked out by minis. Don't ask me why, maybe to them they smell like a horse but don't look like one? I don't know. And sometimes the bigger horse can be a nasty bully to the mini, which can get very dangerous for the miniature involved.

    I have one horse in with two minis, myself. And they get along fantastically well. But my previous gelding would bully them and so I had to keep them separated.

    I have a friend that keeps a horse, a mini and a mini donkey and they're all best friends. I would think you'd need to introduce them carefully though.
