Lol, in other words they are useless? My boyfriend thinks that. Haha. My dad does especially, and my papa. Maybe it's just a girl thing xD But they are always like, 'what good is he if you can't ride him?'

That was my first thought, and I have called them grass eating dogs before, too. Maybe, they are better than I thought.

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

Prepared properly they can be!

I'd really like to get one eventually - they are so flipping adorable. We trail ride our big horses, could we have one of them follow along on the ride (kinda like the trail dogs do)? Can you reliably train them to stick with the big horses on the trail or would you have to worry a lot about them wandering off?

I was normal...then I got a horse.

Lol @ Kevin and Eddie :]

Kids ponies is about the only thing they are used for around here, and a bit of driving. We have one at the farm who is a kids pony.

How big would the mini have to be, to be ridden by a very small child -- 2 year old?

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 she's 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 don't have them, don't 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!
