She's pretty! Beautiful markings and sucj an elegant/cute head

As for the mini/horse turnout, I know someone who has a 40 inch pony out with a 17.3 warmblood and a 15.3 fresian. The mini kicks horsie butt, and there's never been a problem

I just had to come look at her pictures! She is such a cutie! I just love the picture of her with the horse!

GR says "Hey mom, that horse is little like me!" I will have to bring him out to visit her sometime!

I have unfortunately known of quite a few minis killed because they were pastured with big horses. It works until it doesnt. What usually happens is the big horse is feeling frisky and running and bucking and accidentally kicks the mini in the head and the mini dies. Minis heads are right at hoof height when a big horse kicks. I knew one person that I talked with that swore hers were fine for 2 years and I told her I still wouldnt do it. She emailed me 6 months later that it happened exactly how I had warned her. Big horse accidentally kicked her mini in the head :( Just not a chance I would take

Tiff, that is too cute.

Kelly, Rejoice is a stellar example of the breed. Some minis look.. odd... but Rejoice is exactly what a Mini should be; a smaller horse, but with good conformation.
We will have to get pictures of her in her new red halter ;)

Eh, Shay-las mom has a miniature gelding, and when he's turned out with the mares, he becomes boss. He'll think nothing of a well placed boot or bite to defend his space or food, and the mares respect him despite his size.

There CAN be an opening for serious injury, but I really consider that living in the "what if" bubble I dislike so much. A full grown horse can easily kill another full grown horse, whether it's a kick to the head, running them through a fence, kicking and breaking a leg, etc. Mini's are small and agile, and the chances of a hoof managing to hit the head in exactly a way as to cause death really doesn't strike me as any more increased as the average horses ability to sustain serious injury by it's peers.

Anyway, your girl is absolutely BREATHTAKING. She's adorable and classy all rolled up into one kissable package!

Many of them are real powerhouses in those little bodies.
I always admire any I see. Rejoice is a real beauty M2G, I'm sure you are going to enjoy her.
I saw the same episode and my thought wasthat stud would be very hard to buy him and would be cheaper to buy almost any other horse there.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
