I am thinking of doing an obstacle course and with each obstacle they complete collect an egg. The person with the most eggs in their basket wins. Any...

    Using An Ice Sled

    I passed up buying an ice sled today, thinking I could rig it up for one of my miniatures to haul. Has anyone ever used one before or has any other ideas for a sled? I was thinking it might be fun to try hauling firewood, hay ect... or maybe myself in the winter. Thanks.

    Feeding for Winter

    I have 2 mares that I wintered through last year, they were slightly on the thinner side by the time spring came around. Teeth floating and worming are done regularly. The winter we had was a bad one, and I am hoping to keep a bit more weight on them this time around. I feed Purina feeds, they...

    Aging by Teeth

    Does anyone know how to tell the age by teeth? I recently got a mare from and was told she is 14. In my opinion I think she is older. I have a couple pictures front on, but i can try to get more angles if needed. Thanks in advance.

    Lots of snow!!

    We have about 32" of snow down now and are expecting another 30-40cm within the next 5 days. The only thing keeping the minis from being buried so far is the layer of ice crust from an ice storm we had. They are enjoying the 20'X20' corral I shoveled for them, they can sun themselves and the...

    2013 Feed Prices

    What are you paying for your feed? I am in Canada, but I'm wondering whether Canadian or not if are paying more or less for feed. I purchased a bag of Purina Equalizer today and it was $26.85. I was only paying $23.25. I can't complain though, today when I got the feed (and 1kg of alfalfa cubes...

    Canine Ulcers

    My 8 year old Corgi/Border Collie cross has been throwing up with a small amount of blood. It is mostly bile with a few drops, we've made an appointment with the vet but I was wondering if anyone here has had experience with them. What was the outcome and treatment? Lucy is a very picky eater...

    Horse and Horsemen 1988

    I was looking through some of my uncle's old horse Magazines when I found this on miniature horses. Horse & Horsemen Magazine from February 1988. It is pretty neat to see thoughts and progression of miniatures from 25 years ago. I'm not sure if it will be legible, but I thought I would at least...

    Purina Equalizer

    Does anyone here use this for feed ? How much do you feed of it per day? A friend of mine is looking in to getting a couple easy keepers, a mare 4 and gelding 3. This feed was recommended for miniatures at the feed store, since they do not carry Purina Miniature/ Pony.
