christmas mini my first ever

I got a mini for christmas. She is such a love bug. She is a 7 yr old silver dapple that is about 32.75 inches and ANHR registerable.. I am now in love with minis.
I have always prety much had the big horses. I decided when I got too old for my big girls I would have a mini someday. Well I am old, but not too old yet, so now I have the best of both worlds.
Did I mention she is bred.? We have no due date so I will be just guessing as we go. It will be my first mini baby and my first foal in about 18 years.
Just wanted to share with other mini lovers. I know she is not show worthy but she is mine as will the baby be. So please don't go wild on conformation. I have seen it in another post and I am here to share my excitement, not get a critique on her build nor a lecture on breeding non showable horses.
I am pleased with her.

she only got bald patches when she escaped the first day into the burrs and while I was shaving her face I lightly shaved out the burrs. I was happy to because I got to see some of her silver dapples!
she is fine..just a shaving happy mom

i'll probably be asking many questions about this one. Foaling will be a big one right now..and later cart training! I sure have been enjoyingher. I should have mini'd up years ago

She's a cutie & now you'll have the adventure of having a new foal, at some point. We've sure had some long foal threads here-haha.

What a pretty girl! Just a bit of forewarning, miniatures are notorious for having a hard time foaling, so have a good vet and supplies ready for when its time! You'll have so much fun cart training her and teaching the baby. I know that I have.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
