I thoght he looked familier.. then, the Timberviews in front of his name kinda gave it away! LOL! She is a great friend of mine, she has taught me a lot. NICE person! Congrats on getting him, and I cannot wait to see his future babies!
Thanks! I just LOVE this boy :) I put him on our drill team right away (AZ Mini Mystique) and into a performance after just one practice and he was great! Everyone on the team is impressed :) This weekend he will experience a driving darby :) I can't wait to see his babies, either! Lavonne is so nice and so easy to work with :)
This is my boy and his son. The bay is Dabaras Cajun Flash AKA Cajun. He's around 12 years old now, I've had him since he was 3 months. He's my baby He has had 1 foal, who is the little red stallion below him, and in the lunging picture. Cajun is a whopping 27.5 inches tall :) and I think the smallest mini i've seen. He's some showing done but was put on the backburner since the TEENY TINY ones aren't really competitive in the AMHR circut around here. Though he did win his stakes driving class his only time out and with only being trained to drive literally the week before. I do drive him for fun to keep him in shape since I'm not very big myself, and not that often so it's not hurting him none.
Below him is his ONLY foal (which is a whole different story) His name is Mac, registered as Thorn and Thistles Ram Pride for 2009..another long story... He is a coming 5 year old stallion (soon to be gelding) He's 30 inches tall, out of a 34 inch mare so he's about average between the 2 horses and just big enough to be real usable. I love him so much, would love to breed him too but he's got a wonky back leg that rotates weird. Doesn't hurt him or nothing, doesn't affect his usability just not willing to maybe pass it on, though I like him more then Cajun. He was shown a little as a yearling, then had a few health set backs that were worse then they should have been due to Vets who know NOTHING about minis...grrr but he's in the all clear now and is a wonderful driver and inhand horse.
I just found this forum! I'm Wendy & here are my boys!
Hi--I'm Wendy from Country Roads Miniatures in Malta, Illinois. We have been raising minis for 4 years now, and have gone from 1 "Christmas Pony" to 16 minis, with 8 foals expected this coming spring.! They are so addictive!
Above is Quiet Dells Rowdy King of Ambition, our first stallion. He is 30.5 inches and is a Rowdy/Egyptian King cross. We bought him from West Virginia. He was shown extensively on the World Class Cirquit, which is mainly down South, and won 5 National Halter titles, including National Champion Youth Halter Horse. He has also won in AMHR. We are expecting 6 foals from him in 2011. Five of his ladies are pintos, so this could be quite a colorful bunch!
This is our newest boy. Boones Little Buckeroo Fancy Pants. He is a 29.5 inch, blue roan, Buckeroo grandson. We will be co-owning him with Toad Hill Miniatures in Bloomington , IL. Above is his first foal to be shown. He is leading the AMHR All Star's High Point for Multi-Color Stallion and Geldings by over 300 points and will be the 2010 National Champion.
Our last boy is a little "different"! This is TTW Ziggy Marley and he will be courting some of our little girls this spring to "make mules". He is 31 inches tall and a very sweet long-eared gentleman!
Whoa... He looks so much like a horse.Posted via Mobile Device
Which is exactly what miniature horses should look like; miniature TBs or Arabs. They should be held to the same standard as any other horse breed. Nice stallion, OP, well done! It's really nice to see a good breeding quality mini stallion :)
There is alot of variance within the breed. It seems minis with Arab characteristics are favored at this time. Dishy heads, long arched necks, flat top-lines, high set tails. And overall "fineness". Previously, minis that looked like little Morgans or Quarter Horses were popular. Minis with Shetland bloodlines tend to be much leggier looking and can almost look like tiny saddlebreds.
