All My Minis -pic spam!-
 
Sounds like a soap opera title. I just thought I'd introduce them since I've never really introduced them before!

Big Momma is normally named 'Galaxy' ... She's double registered and I cannot for the life of me remember either of her names. They are similar, yet different. I'll probably show her a couple of times this year since she's open. Pictured with her filly from 2009 because shamefully, I don't have any of just her. She's a very sweet mare but she is definitely the BAWSS.

This is the first foal we ever had born here. Her name is Khaos, because she's really awesome at causing it. Galaxy was bred when we bought her, and this is what we got, a silver bay filly... who is really beautiful in the body but she has a show fatal flaw... An underbite :( It's a shame. She would have been great to show, but instead she's just a nice little ham who enjoys attention - and despite being the shortest at 26", she can outrun every miniature we have. She is also an escape arteest!

This is Little Kings Psychedelic Symphony. I bought him at a silent auction to benefit a club, was absolutely disgusted with how he was maturing, but now I'm really freaking impressed with how he's turned out. He's a jumping maniac and that will most likely be where he excels. We call him Orion, and he'll be...3? I think.. He's sired by Little Kings Psyched up Buck. Terrible photo I know, but I'd just clipped him and snapped it with my cell. He's also the tallest one I have. He was almost at 32" last I measured, red dun coloring.

This is my tiny package of pride, Viking. He has made such huge progress with all the training I had to do on him, and all the manners he had to learn. He came from being nothing but a herd sire for four years to a show horse in four months at one show in 2010, and he had a GREAT show year in 2011. He's our main stallion, and I'll be showing his filly that was born last year along with him and Orion.... The best part about him is that he pretty much stays clean in the summer :)

And this little girl is Booger, and we still need a show name for her to get her registered. This is a product of Galaxy and Viking and she looks QUITE promising. She was a premie at 310 days, and we almost lost her on day two... However, she's now bigger than momma, and she's quite lively! She will gallop all the way across the pasture when she sees you, and will whinny at you in hopes that you will come and pay attention to her. I have big plans for this filly, and I don't think she's going to disappoint... I cannot WAIT to shave her this spring!

Yes, that's one of our cats, he's our second largest cat. I'm surprised he's the only who who got snapped that day because our cats are like zombies. If they see you, they come towards you as a horde. @_@ That being said, the little tard cats get stepped on a few times before they figure out under the horses is a bad place to be...

Unless it's Viking... He just jumps over them 8\

I love the minis. I've never had as much fun showing as I did last year. The people are great in the local-ish mini clubs. It's SO much easier to show them too. I seriously pack one grooming tote and grab the halter bags and we're ready to go show for the day. You don't have to have the expensive show shirts either, just your basic 'sunday best'.

Thats awesome!!! I was interested in getting one back when I was first looking into buying, but once I found out I had the finances to definitively get a full sized horse, thats what I did.....but a Mini is def on my list next! :D

PaintsPwn, loved meeting all your minis! They are all gorgeous.
Sounds like you will be keeping them, and yourself, busy with showing this year. Have fun!

Oh, by the way I love the name Khaos, if you don't mind, I may name a mini that if the opportunity arises I like it so much. :wink:
