What Can You Do With Mini's

Hey.

Well I figured it would be a good idea to have a thread about what you can and what you do with your mini's. So post away guys. I'd love to know answers because I am going to start training a mini Merlin once he is in better condition.

I just stare at these cute faces and kiss each nose :)




.....Actually we drive them on the trails around the farm and "trick train" for amusement but really they have no real job here. We are hoping for one foal next year however (The silver bay is our stallion, the other two are mares)

Aww pretty! Good luck with the foal, I know you can do everything you can do with a big horse, apart from riding. But the more ideas the more training and the more things to do!

I know you can teach them tricks, drive them, breed them, free jump, lunge, walk them on trails -- no rider. So that's a few things. But come on guys, you've got to have entertaining and creative ideas. What about paint them purple?

You can paint a big horse purple - If its got white its fair game for a Kool aid dye job in my book!

You can take them INTO schools and nursing homes, they typically frown on full sized 1100 pound animals in school but smile when a 230 pound Miniature painted purple walks up :)

Well what hubby and I PERSONALLY do...

We are part of a mini horse driving drill team: www.minimystique.org Our big three upcoming performances are: A horse festival in Az next month, the Rose Bowl Parade for our third year (and the Equestfest performance that goes along with it), and the 2010 WEG in Kentucky :)

We compete in combined driving, which is driving's version of eventing: FUN!!!

We also drive in parades, though that's pretty much just wtih the drill team. I drive around the neighborhood for fun, and at driving shows the few times they have them here.

We breed them and love on them and just enjoy being around them.

I (hubby wont' but is my groom) show them at AMHA, AMHR and other shows. I do halter, driving, obstacle (in hand and driving), showmanship, and liberty. Want to do some of the jumping classes, just need to train a horse for it ;)

My guy? Other than being fat, old, and grumpy, he leads, he likes to ride in the BACKSEAT of my truck. I just pull the front seat up as far as it will go and he hops right in! He knows how to shake and turn in a circle on command. Haha. He was in a show once, and was a stud at that time. He was the only one in his class so he got a big trophy, it was his first show too, lol.

You can boil them or barbecue or braise. I've heard of people roasting them. They would be a fine burger. I love a good kabob so that's a possibility. Stew wouldn't be too bad. The possibilities are endless!
