    I forgot to add, that they make fun little parade horses, once trained to all the noise etc.

    Oh - and don't forget they make nice TV watching buddies. My granddaughter's Mini gelding, loves to watch TV with the girls.

He/she will receive permanent registration at three years of age after being measured for height to determine what division he/she will be placed in. Certainly a B though. There again, if neither is registered, it's a moot point I suppose.

    They will both have temporary registration papers. The AMHR is a three year requirement but the AMHA has a 5 year time on the temp papers. Both of my daughter's horses will end up being double registered. One is going to be 5 and the one is going on three.

    I've often wondered about the 5 yr. Requirement. I've heard some say their Minis grew taller after 3, but I tend to think it might have been a difference in measuring.

    My mare is a companion for my gelding and currently has a foal (half mini, half shetland, soon to be a registered National Show Pony) by her side. This foal and my other foal will show in driving classes when they're older, and the purebred mini will maybe be a halter horse for 4-H.

    Thank you for clearing that up. I had wondered, since the Mini geldings in our family are 4 and have their papers.

    Wow, I feel like I have been gone forever from here!
    Our computer is in for repair and we just got this laptop
    up and working for now...

    I wish I was on our other 'puter, I have all kinds of pics of things you can do with minis!
    From the sounds of it, you now have lots of ideas though.

    Your two are at a good age to start training them to drive. I would not have them pulling a cart until they are a good three years old though, but you can certainly start ground driving and all that now.

    We do a lot of parades with ours, as well as nursing home visits, etc. too. They have such great personalities and are so gentle and kind, you can do so much with them really....

    And I can't believe no one else has requested pics yet!
    Lets see these two little ones of yours please?!
