As far back as I can remember, I wanted a horse. As a child I remember playing "house" but instead of being the "mom" I always wanted to be the horse!!!
|Here are 3 of my miniature horses being loved up by my daughter-inlaw, who is having her pic taken by my son. :-) This actually gives you a better idea of how small they are, the tallest one is 36 inches tall at the withers. Miniature horses are measured in inches rather than "hands" as a pony or horse is, and the shorter the better in the "Mini" culture.|
|My son petting Pancho, who was the last mini born here about 2 yrs ago. He's quite rare due to the fact that he has blue eyes and also is a black & white Pinto(sired by Cisco in the below pic). He's also the least trained mainly because shortly after his birth I had a fall, broke a couple of ribs and was unable to work with him. Horses are not like dogs, if they aren't handled daily from birth they stay fairly wild, and even though they are small they still are very strong willed and can easily knock me down!!|
