Let me give a little backstory… My cousin Willie Joe and his wife Kim have a young daughter (Makenzie) who is I think… two years old, maybe three… Makenzie is obsessed with horses and Kim has been wanting to buy her one, but not a big one because they’ve never owned a horse before and think the larger breeds are intimidating…
So Kim’s found this mini, Shelly… that she’s wanting to buy for Makenzie. There’s a few quirks, but nothing that can’t be worked out… She’s asked for me to help her if they do buy the horse.
So, here are the facts:
Shelly is a mare… she’s five years old and is not registered. She stands at 33 inches tall and is chocolate brown. She’s shy, but very sweet and friendly. She is bred, though… to a blue roan and white mini stud named Quigley. She'll foal next May.
According to my cousin, I’m going to be helping her learn what to do, what feed to feed, and other such things… she wants me to teach her ‘everything’, and she’s not looking for a horse for her daughter to ride or anything. Kim just wants the horse to be a ‘pet’… something for Makenzie to pet and love on (if Makenzie wants to ride, she can be led around on my horses… lol).
^ I don’t know what the chestnut horses’ name is…
^ He’s not the cutest in the world... IMO
So, there you are…info and pics. What do you think? They’ll probably get the mini anyway, I just wanted yall to see… Yes, I have permission to post these pictures.
