1st post. Introducing myself and my minis!
Hi! I am so happy to have found this forum. I have two minis that I absolutely ADORE and no one to share my crazy "mini love" with.

I grew up riding and showing. I now have an 11 year old daughter who did NOT inherit my "horse gene." Last year, we moved to a cute house on an acre with a 3 stall barn. I was CRAVING a horse, but also have a tight budget, plus not a lot of time to work with a horse. I decided to get some minis and I am so glad I did.

BRUNO is a paint, and just at 34 inches (ok, he may be 35"). I love his personality. I was told he is trained to drive, but we have no cart and I know NOTHING about driving.

Welcome to the forum.

Bruno is very cute. Can not wait to see more photos.

This is Boo. He is 29 inches. He was used in a petting zoo, so he is very docile and sweet.

They are both geldings, and both about 9 years old. They are already attached to each other. Thanks for letting me share!

thanks so much for the quick welcome!!!

Boo is cute too! And I love the large piece of equipment in the background. Is that yours too?

LOL, no!

Thanks again. I am sitting here at the computer, staring at my minis. I think I am going to pour myself a glass of chardonnay and go hang out with them. Boo loves to follow me around as I pick up manure. Bruno tries to act like he doesn't care about me, but he stays near, also.

Just wanted to ad my "Hello! Welcome to the Forum!"

I love it. It is a great way to get advice and share your horses/stories with others who have the same "un-controllable addiction". ( hee, hee, hee......)

See you around!

Thank you!
Not only is he a handsome little man, he has an incredible work ethic.
I trained him to drive, and he absolutely lives for it!

He also enjoys doing community service, and parades too.
Kozmo is pretty much an all around awesome horse!
(Do I sound like a proud Mom?)

I think you are really going to enjoy your minis.
I hope you get your hands on some driving equipment soon so you can see how your handsome little man Bruno does!

You will have to keep us updated. :D

Beware, they are like potato chips, you can't have just one!

But it looks like you all ready know that, glad to see you have a couple to keep each other company....
