Your thread title of just the word "Help" is a bit vague.. you will get more hits if you gave some description such as "Wanted: Mini in Lower Mainland BC" or "What should I research before buying a mini?"
I just happened to click this thread as I generally want to "help" as much as possible, but any sellers would very likely just pass this thread over.

Have you done any research as to the needs a mini has? They can be prone to foundering, so care must be taken in feeding them. Contrary to what seems to be common knowledge, they need just as much care as a full sized horse; they need their feet done every 6-10 weeks, they need to be exercised and watched for obesity and lameness, they need their vaccinations and regular worming. They are NOT big dogs. They can NOT just be left to fend for themselves. They DO need their feet done REGULARLY and NO, the farrier will NOT charge less because they're "small."

I see way too many minis on CL or Kijiji that break my heart.. malnutritioned, overweight, elf slippered feet... just makes me sick.

I am well aware of what horses need I have owned/leased a horse and ended up haveing to buy his grain......the mini will be in a pasture and it will be used to help people with disabilities in hospitals as well as just general teaching because I am so afraid of people that horses are my way of therapy so I am able to talk freely
