    My boss has mini's for work doing pony rides. She recently brought a mare with a 4 week old foal. Way to cute.

    I just recently got a mini, mostly to be a pasture mate for my mare.
    I have fallen in love with him and so has my boyfriend.
    His name is Dodger and he is a love bug!

    Right now his only job is to look cute, but I plan on using him as a lead line pony in the future for my kids. He can be ridden but of course not by anything too big.

    Here is a picture I snapped of him the other day when I was leading one of the little kids that live across the street from my pasture on him.

    Truer words were never spoken!
    We started out with one, then got two more, then another two, and another, now have six total......but we do an awful lot with them, and they really are a joy!

    (I'm pretty sure my three riding horses are jealous )

    Okay, dumb question (I have never had a mini, but they are so cute)....do they come in your house? That is what I would want...sit on the sofa w ya, hang out....ride in the back seat to the grocery store. Is this "dreaming"?

    You better be looking for one tiny little mini! I would not make it a house pet personally, minis can become a trainwreck if they are not treated like a big horse. That might be a little difficult being a house pet.

    Gees, mini....you have shattered my dreams before they were realized. I have always wanted to live in a house w my horses...that would be "living". Minis seem like I would get to " a little". Unfortunately, I don't think my family would appreciate it. Our 125 lb dog is probably the size of a little mini....but like you said...it could be a bit much. But, maybe not.

    I can just see that little 26" tall, 200lb mini deciding to go on a bucking and jumping spree through the living room! A broken lamp, dog hiding in the bathroom trembling in fear, couch cushions all over and stuffing ripped out, tiny hoof shaped holes in the TV...LMAO!

    I think your family would put you in the dog house permanently and stick the mini in there with you!

    I do have a 30 inch mini here that is just as sweet as ever. My rottweiler is almost as big as her and she is a small rottie!

    I have had Whinney in my parents house before. She had colic earlier that day and was still cramping and acting like she might go back into colic and the vet wanted constant eye on her. It was suppose to be below 0degrees so no possible way to spend the night in the barn. My parents had two concrete floored whelping pens for their dogs built into the basement that were heated and cooled and she spent the next few days down there where I could sleep and keep an eye on her. Of course I did not crank the heat real high as she did have one heck of a winter coat and I did not want her to start sweating down there. She was just a weanling at the time though, so she was not "big" yet.
