Ok so I have a small quarter horse and her only socialization with other horses is once a week when I take her to my barn for a lesson once a week. Her only other socialization is the 2 "outside" dogs. She is young (3 1/2) so I feel it is vital for her to have other horses around... could a mini be the answer? Is getting a mini a good or bad idea?(a horse is just out of the question as of now)
If it is a good idea, what do minis take as far as care taking (ie. Feeding amounts)
Do minis living expenses cost as much as horses?
