You're in a rock and a hard place with family ties, I know how that goes. How is your fencing? You're going to need GREAT fencing to keep minis in, ours were notorious for getting out or knowing when the fence isn't hot. Minis are balls of energy to begin, I couldn't imagine a stud. Do you only have one horse? If the land is YOURS just fence off your acre and keep your horse there maybe?
I would try and get her to look at the pros and cons of things. Minis are a whole different ball game in my opinion, just as it is owning a QH vs a Draft.
