We are going to try to make our a pack mini. We go trail riding it would be nice if she could go along. Figured if we gave her a few things to carry that were light she would at least be doing something while shes with us. If we get her feet back to being good. She has stopped limping for the most part. For the people who have nothing good to say about the minis...keep it at that...say nothing! This was supposed to be a post on what people do with their minis not what people, who dont have them, dont like about them. Find another post to post on. Anyways, our mini is also a companion for the cat and the horses. Its actually funny watching the two of them, cat and mini, follow each other around. My mini is also my neighbors walking partner. She comes over and gets my mini and walks her around the yard while she exercises. She also gets her out for her grand kids to watch. They are alot of fun and very cute!
