    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...

I am having a really hard time finding a replacement tire the correct size. Could anyone direct me? The tire I need is 2.50x16 Also, pictures...

    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. The man who worked at the auction was told that the palomino pregnant mare was due in February, which turned out to be false. Now...

    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...

    So my family has 2 Miniature Horses (6 & 7 months old) and they have developed a taste for oak leaves. Their field is right next to some woods that is mostly comprised of black jack scrub oak. We rake the field regularly to get rid of the leaves but what I am wanting to know is exactly how bad...

    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...

    Hi. I purchased a mini for my son, who is 3 1/2, about 3 weeks ago. I was told that he was great with kids and that he is "probably" around 10 years old (not sure how accurate the age is and I'm trying to figure out how I can go about estimating his age myself until the vet comes out). He is...

    Hi everyone, In 2012, I rescued a beautiful mini mare who had been badly abused and neglected. She was about to be sent to slaughter, when I threw her in my trailer and brought her home. A few months later I was surprised as ever to find out that she was pregnant. In April 2012, she gave birth...

She gets all the hay she wants, the pasture is going to be turning green within the next month, and I'm giving her an armful of rich alfalfa every day. Plus she gets free choice minerals. should I be...

    Maybe next year sometime, my family might get my baby sister a mini. She'll be four then, and she absolutely LOVES horses!! Do you recommend a mini for kids? She and our other sisters would be the ones riding it. I also have a pretty good sized quarter horse (mare). Would that be dangerous to...

  14. Miniature Horses
    I hope there are some experienced mini folks here because I am not and I need help. My mini is 15, I have had her for 1 year. It is hard to keep her from being overweight so I was told several months ago (by the former owner) to omit grain. But I have read that they need some grains for complete...

    I thought I'd post a little donkey update, it's been a while! :D First, I've been driving the them tandem on the ground. It's been, well, funny! The people at the barn get quite a chuckle when the see me with my very long lines trying to get them lined up. I must say, they are VERY tolerant and...

    When is an appropriate age for a mini to start driving? As in driving I mean actually pulling a cart.

    Hi, I am a new horse owner. I bought my 14 year old miniature horse in October. She is a little hefty and the former owners visited 2 days ago and they think she has gained since I have had her. They suggested I stop all grain. I live in Maine so for the past week or so she has had to start...
  20. Horse Law
    A few days ago I got a threat from someone that lives down the road about one of my ponies being on his property. Not even on his lawn. In the brush along the treeline. Ground was frozen. She caused NO damage. Then when my grandfather went over to get her, he parked behind the guy's truck and...
