Beautiful! Congrats! Im a new mini owner too. I've had my yearling for about 3 months now and will be getting a friend for her in a few weeks
Weve got ground manners down and she's an absolute angel on the lead. We go for walks but mostly just play around in her paddock.
She didnt like being alone but is realy skidish around other horses. Weve just put her togethter with my larger horse and she's now the boss Lady and loves it. Still getting a friend her size though, think she will be much happier.
She's a very picky eatter so I free feed, her weight was kinda low but since going together with my other horse she's eatting better. Her area was looking kinda crappy with over grown grass she wouldnt eat but now she munches down beside the other horse.
