I didn't even realize that there was such thing as a miniature horse, but maybe I might have to look at getting one of them rather than a miniature pony... thanks for the info, Skyseternalangel! I wasn't actually planning to ride it, as it might not take my weight. I weigh around 52kg, I think. Could a miniature horse (or halflinger) even hold me? Which one would you rather keep, a miniature horse or a halflinger... or even a dartmoor? Can you please give me a description on what they are like (if you can)?
Okay, so I don't have enough land for the horse to feed on grass all year round... okay then. That is another thing to think about. I might be able to do hay all year round, and times when the grass is low.
As for where I live... I don't really live in the city (well, the town isn't really a city). We're sort of on the outskirts in an area where we have a bit of land. There is a man who lives down the road from us and he owns a clydesdale and a couple of other horses. He probably has a bit more land than us, but his horses look happy and healthy. When I was taking the family dog (Ziggy) for a walk, the man's german shepard (Zac) followed us the whole way. When we returned Zac back home, the man mentioned that he fed his horses hay mosty all year round.
As for getting two minatures, I don't think that I'd have enough room (or money) to keep them both. What are the concequences on getting just one? Yes, I am obviously a serious newbie at this, but I'd like to find out as much as I can.
Thanks for your time, everyone!
I long for a horse of my own, a compainion who loves you no matter your differences...
