    We've kept a mini and full size horse together for 11 years. We feed free choice orchard grass and the full size horse we supplement 2x a day with senior feed. The mini can literally tear a feeder off anything as long as his nose can reach it so we had to reinforce a feeder to the wall that only the horse can reach. Occasionally we will turn out four horses at a time and the mini hasn't had any problems. Our mini is a gelding and hates mares with a passion so we never turn him out with mares.

    I kept a mini stallion with a 15hh quarter/app cross and they got on famously. That being said, I'd probably not do it again for fear of the rare incident even though it was fine for me. My little guy means too much to see him hurt by accident.

    My ex-racehorse mare's only companion (apart from the cattle in the paddock that she hates and stays well away from) is a shetland x shetlandxmini (if that makes sense haha, his father was a miniature horse x shetland and his mother is pure shetland) and they get along great, its so cute watching them try to groom each other, Lollie can only just reach halfway up Angel's shoulder

    My sister's 29" mini, Derringer (R.I.P) and a friend's 18+h Percheron, Sebastian. A great team!
