  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I have two 32" minis that I am wanting to train to pull a cart, unfortunately I do not have anyone I know that is familiar with this stuff! What size cart does everyone recommend? I found a good deal on a set of 2 on CL that are run down and I am willing to fix, but the lady says the...
  2. Driving
    To start, I just purchased a AMH that came with her cart and harness. All is in good shape and working order except for one tire, which needs replaced. 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...
  3. Horse Talk
    Hello everyone! I am trying to think of name for my miniature horse rescue and I need suggestions. Something cute and catchy, but not cheesy or long. My rescue will be focusing on ex-party ponies, which is a very big problem in my area (I live in West Texas). I have been rescuing horses for...

    heyy So I am helping a friend showing her miniature horses and I'm sort of new to it all, so any ideas and help is much appreciated So I'm unsure on the types of things I can do to increase trust for the horse to have with me and for me to have with them, I need to make sure I have good trust...
  5. Horse Breeding
    I am a large horse owner and new to miniature horses (also new to stallions!). We rescued a 6 year old miniature stallion about a month ago and this weekend we are bringing home a miniature filly (6 months old). I have two separate but adjoining pasture/pens for these two while they get to...
  6. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hey there! I've been dreaming of showing miniature horses for quite some time and now I am able to start! I'm beginning my long search to finding the right mini that is SHOW quality and BREEDING quality! I have some people I can contact on help but they aren't very well known and I'm...
  7. Horse Talk
    I was just wondering how to keep minis from becoming fat on pasture. We need them on there because they are companions for my other horse. I know they tend to become fat really easily so what's the best deal? I am not so sure about grazing muzzles, apparently they don't like them and they are...
  8. Horse Health
    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...

  10. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I decided to clip my yearling mini filly and she clipped out grey. She is chestnut colored otherwise with a flaxen mane and tail. Her mother is a grey and her father is a bay with a possible grey sire. Does this mean she is a silver bay and has gotten the silver gene?
  11. Horse Talk
    Hi guys, I know this is an age old question, but I couldn't find what I was looking for from the search bar. I only have the one horse now, and she's been on her own since Friday. She has been fine, but being a herd animal, I feel it very, very wrong to keep her alone. Luckily, with it being...

  13. Horse Training
    First of all he is about to be gelded. I am not very experienced with horses and he is already a real hand full. He tries to bite me and rears at anyone that comes near him. After he is gelded I am hoping he will calm down. I used to be able to walk him some a few months ago, but I had...

    What are some signs of founder? A judge once told me that she thought my pony could be prone to founder, and I've heard a lot of Shetlands get it, so I would really like to know some signs that a pony is going to or is foundered/foundering. I have 3 Shetlands that have never had it that I know...

    I have a 16 month old Miniature gelding named Koda. He is being boarded for the first time and has been there only 9 days so far. He shares a pasture with a 27 year old Shetland Pony gelding who is owned by the barn manager. The Shetland, Hammer, steals Koda's food and runs him around...
  16. Miniature Horses
    Here's some new pictures of my yearling gelding, Koda (he is a pintaloosa). I have him at a boarding farm now and this morning I sat with him in his pasture for 2 hours while I read a book ("Teach Your Horse Perfect Manners" by Kelly Marks). I sat in the shade and he came over, investigated my...

    I caught my Mini yearling, Koda, hanging out in his trailer all by himself :lol: I walked up and saw him standing in his trailer, just chilling, I didn't put him there. Haha! Please ignore me talking to him, it's embarassing! :oops: We had put the trailer inside his pen for him to get used to...
  18. Trail Riding
    I have a Miniature gelding who I like to take for walks and would like to take camping. I live in Georgia, and there are only 6 or so state parks with horse facilities. I just called one that looked promising, and was told that I can't bring my Miniature Horse because I would be walking him, and...
  19. Miniature Horses
    Hi everyone! I have decided to would be a lot of fun to go camping with my Miniature gelding, Koda (pictured as a foal over there to the left), with him as a pack horse. My question is regarding age of the horse. Koda is a yearling (one year, three months). Do you think he would be physically...
