Hi everyone! I thought it might be fun for those of us with minis, or even those who are interested in having minis, to have a thread to just share pictures, the funny things minis do, and anything else that might be interesting.
I have a mini named Prince, and my dad has a mini named Lady. They are half brother/sister, and the same age; they will be 9 in the coming spring.
Here's a little about Lady: She has a mostly calm temperament, love children, and has the ability to get fat on air. I bought her as weanling, but after I purchased my Quarter Horse, had to sell her a few years ago. Thankfully, it was my dad who bought her!
So I still get to work with her occasionally, and see her every day.
She pulls a cart, and can be ridden by children. When I get the chance, we are working towards doing liberty work.
Prince: He is an exact opposite of Lady. He doesn't gain weight at anywhere near the rate of his sister. He is also nervous, and not to be trusted with children, small animals, and most men (weird story...). We work on liberty and doing dressage with a surcingle,long reins, and a dressage whip (as a leg aid replacement). Someday, I'd like to teach him to pull a cart.
The reason he has extreme dislike of men is because of when he was gelded. He didn't go completely out, and a bunch of guys jumped on him to push him down. To this day, he will bite my dad if he thinks he can get away with it. I correct him, but in truth, I really can't blame him...
The one with the green halter is Prince, and the one in pink is Lady.
