I am going to be a 4th yr vet student come May, and am looking to downsize a few horses since my sister will be the one doing most of the barn work.
I am looking for great homes for two of my tiny equines, I can email pictures to you of both that I just took the other day. Let me know if you are interested in either one.
1. Registered mini horse, bay mare, 34 inches tall. Very furry and roly-poly. Her name is "Maggie". She is 11 years old, likes kids, and loves other horses. Will stand in cross ties to be brushed by kids for hours. Too small to give pony rides, so doesn't have much experience in that. She has NEVER foundered, even though we have 25 acres of grass turnout. Gets very depressed when you put a grazing muzzle on her, so we stopped that. She seems to be able to regulate herself and so is fine even on full turnout in all seasons. She is very fat as a result, but adorable. She has an underbite, and so its good for the dentist to check her yearly, and ideally get sedated and floated (incisors too) every few years. We just had that done last year.
2. "Faith", is a 6 year old small pony mare, 10 hands tall and is a grey/white pinto but mostly white. She is VERY personable, loves treats, loves attention, can be alittle stubborn. She has foundered in the past and so needs paddocks without too much grass or a grazing muzzle in spring/summer/fall. She doesn't mind grazing muzzles and actually gets excited when she sees one because she knows she gets a treat when it goes on. She also would stand in cross ties for hours for kids to play with. She is also used to having a little saddle put on her and a girth tightened and kids jumping up on her for a pony ride. Slower moving because of her feet and so is a good, safe companinon and good pony for kids to be interacting with.
These two are just the cutest. I wish I were able to snatch them both up!
If you haven't owned a mini and aren't sure you want to take the plunge with one...let me tell you...they just rock. My little Dumplin' man is the sweetest, funniest most loveable creature. Imagine looking at the cute fuzziness every day. They are airferns too. Just sprinkle them with water now and again and they thrive. They eat so little it's nuts. I think my chickens eat more than Dumplin'

Just somebody with a positive outlook on life...go ahead...hate me for that.
I know of a small lesson barn that is looking for a pony for young kids to learn a thing or two on. They have about 10 or so horses out there. She would be really well taken care of I think. I'm going to ask her and see if she is interested today. She is in GA though, not sure how'd she get down here.
