It also upsets me when people think a sick mutated horse is "cute" ,that mini next to the drafe has very long toes by the way, and is probably bruised all along his hoof wall because of it .
Dwarf miniatures usually have a handful of health problems that are costly and time consuming. I wish miniature horses got the same respect that full size horses get, they need the same amount of space ( to thrive) they need exercise, good nutrition , training ,and a carefull diet, and NO your kid can not ride my halter show horse! (how many times a year do we have to say that to our neighbor before they get the point ) Any stallion that produced a dwarf should be gelded , and the mare should not be used for breeding IMO, there are so many nice healthy Miniature horses out there for sale that there is no need to breed carelessly.
