    Possible Buy! Check out the Mini…

    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).

    Shelly:


    ^ I don’t know what the chestnut horses’ name is…

    Quigley:


    ^ 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.

    I think she's adorable and would make the perfect "pet" - just make sure their paddock is mini baby proof!

    That stud is certainly different!

    I think they would have fun with her... just make sure she doesnt eat too much. Fat minis may be cute but it is really hard on their little legs. The stud is alright looking too... hopefully the baby comes out colored

    The stud is 'different'... he's cute, but I don't think he's exactly 'stud quality' lol...

    I've never owned a mini... and since I'm going to be helping them with her is they get her, i'll probably be asking for a lot of help on here. Lol!

    Aww. I think she would make a nice pet! It will be interesting to see what color the foal turns out to be too.

    Hmm they are pretty cute. I'm not fond of Quigley, however. Shelly looks soo adorable.

    Lol the stud kinda reminds me of a rabbit. I had to think about what it was for awhile...

    For some one who has never owned a horse and just wants a "pet" for "cindy lou" is asking for trouble.....just make sure that she is aware that this is a tough job taking care ...feeding, beding, watering it,, vet checks trimmings and so forth have to be done

    Aww! I think she is adorable! Go ahead and buy her! And to me, the stud doesn't seem ugly, I think he's cute!
