Well, my cousins have 'given' me one of the mini's to do with as I please, but I can't sell it because it originally belonged to their young daughter and they are just going to tell her that i'm training it for her and taming it down, so she won't get all upset...

Honestly, I kinda wish they hadn't given me the mini, but at least with me, he'll get better care... gelding him at the moment is a no-go, I have way too many other things that I've already planned for that have to get done, such as dental bills, a saddle for my seven year old gelding, breeding my mare, and a new computer... but he will be gelded eventually.

He's super hard to catch... I had him in the backyard small paddock, but he managed to get out back with the mares around dark... >.<

Britt do you have someone who can mentor you in your area? For a long time now you have posted about bad animal husbandry and it seems like it just continues.

Oh yes because that new computer and saddle will pay for all the Vet bills and feed the new foals from your mini stud...

Don't worry, eventually is good...... in the meantime you can Craigslist half mini babies. Give them some cutesy new breed name and people will probably spend a fortune for one!

Where there's a will there's a way!
There's a man who lives in town that had a draft (I think percheron, not 100% though) that he used for driving. For some reason they (irresponsibly) put a mini stallion out with her because they figured nothing could happen. Well, mare became pregnant, and gave birth to a really nice foal. Since both horses were a similar "type" being both built for driving, the foal ended up a really nice driving horse. Because they were shocked the cross turned out so well they tried to breed her again. They tried backing her up along a hill, using a plaform, putting the mare in a ditch, none of it worked. So they gave up and just turned the mare out with him again. The mare laid down and let the mini breed her! Now the man drives the 2 foals around, and they're absolutely gorgeous. They both finished growing between 14.2-15hh.

It'll happen sooner than later free of charge if you don't geld the mini.

Holy wait.... I missed this somehow.

You cannot afford to geld a stud but you are intentionally BREEDING!!???

What part of this does not scream REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, IRRESPONSIBLE IDEA??!!

So when your mare has a colt, then what? He gets to run around impregnating everyone since you can't afford to have him gelded, or are you going to geld him and continue praying you don't have half-mini babies being created by your stud?

Flat out, if you cannot afford to properly care for the animals you already own, you have no business breeding for more!

I for one find it highly improbable that a mini can breed a full sized mare. Especially without some help with the terrain and a flexible mare.
My 14.2 hand stallion that is a seasoned breeder could not complete the act on a 16.2 hand tb mare without building a ramp for him.
Has anyone not seen a young stallion attempting his first breeding? He is clumsy and rarely hits the spot so to speak.
Also I have yet to see a colt that is a yearling attempt to breed anything.
My horses run with their dams and other mares until they are 18-20 months old.
I have yet in 46 years had an "accident".
I do not buy the where there is a will there is a way. Mares are too busy backing up, squealing, urinating and winking to do so laying down for a mini.
Yes we can probably find an instance where it may have happened. Its the exeption not the rule. Shalom

Mares will lay down or back up to hill or stand in ditch too.

This is just sad that people like this have animals period.

Not to mention, when they do breed, the two stallions may seriously damage each other, if not kill each other.

Can't speak for horses and minis but a very tiny pygmy buck can find a way to breed a large size dairy goat!

I used to have a pasture full of the cross. The first was an accident but I liked the resulting kids so much I told tiny boy have at it .
