As a miniature horse owner/lover/breeder, I fail to see how miniature horses are cruel to breed???
And 30 and 32" minis are perfectly normal, which is what this foal's parents are. A sized minis are 34" and under. I have a well proportioned 29" mini, the one in my avatar. Most of my minis range from 31-33" with some taller and some smaller. This guy was born small, but I bet he'll end up around 28-30".
I will reserve my judgement on what this guy's confo is like until he's filled out a bit. I will say that the markings on his head make it seem bigger than I think it is. And mini foals (heck, all foals in general, but sometimes minis even more) look a little silly when first born. I DO think his eyes look odd, but I have a 2 y/o filly who, when she was born, I thought her whole head (eyes included) was ugly. Now it's beautiful. I can't access my photos from work, but if you'd like to see, go to my website www.CheyAutRanch.com
and on the mini mare's page it's Solitaire. There's a link to her photo album and you can see what I mean, pics from when she was born to now.
Will this guy turn out to be a well-conformed horse when mature? Only time will tell. I WOULD like to see new photos of him when he's a few weeks old, he'll look a lot different by then.
