    I’ve been ground driving my mini about 5-6 days a week. All we do is walk and he loves it. His ears are up and he gets excited every time we leave the pasture. I have to do very little when it comes to directions and stopping/going. He starting to get good at voice commands. I’m wondering how...

    This is just out of curiosity. Do people breed horses with minis? Im asking because i just saw a for sale ad for a mini arabian. He looked just like an arabian just tiny. Like how do you get mini versions of a regular size horse breed. Im not looking to breed or anything just curious.

    We bought our second horse, a 13 year old QH, back in late June. Around the same time, we sold our pony because he was not a good fit for our kids. He went to a WONDERFUL home - we still get updates on him. Anyway, ever since we've been on the search for a second so Red (the QH) wouldn't be...

    Hello! In January I rescued two mini mares, one pregnant, one possibly pregnant. These poor girls had long feet, lice, and one of them had a large infected injury.

    I bought a black mini mare from a slaughter pen in December and she has free access to hay and I give her a small amount of grain daily since she could stand to use a few lbs. She's looking a little better but has AWFUL dandruff all over. Any ideas to help clear this up? I'm trying to groom...

    Weve had horses in the past, but i never had to take care of them when it came to medical concerns. We recently took in 3 mini mares that have some issues. one is pretty overweight, the others are probably OK in that department but all of them have overgrown feet including one with badly...
