I first saw miniature horses in a parade, many years ago. I’ve loved horses my whole life, but I have to admit that full size equine intimidate me. I was allergic to horses as a child and so I wasn’t exposed to them much. The minis intrigued me, and in 1989, after a lot of research, I got my first mini. For 15 years we did some showing, and some breeding, and some selling of miniature horses. In 2004 our last group of foals was born, because we decided that we wanted to cut back on the work and the expense. We still have 4 mini horses here. All of them are growing older, along with us. Most of them have some kind of health issues and need special care.
I hope that we’ll be able to continue providing these wonderful animals a good home and loving care for the rest of their lives. They’ve given us so much pleasure and they deserve to be cared for by people who appreciate them and want the best for them.
Every one of the minis here has a very special place in my heart. Sadly, we lost Cody in 2012. I’ve written posts about some of the special miniature horses we’ve loved and lost, and you can find them by entering “miniature horses” in the search box on this blog
