    Life questions from a 20 something year old

    Hello all! I have been getting a very strong feeling, a promoting if you will, lately that it's time for me to start a family. But I'm terrified. I know that's normal. But I just can't stop overthinking. It's probably selfish, but one of the things I can't stop thinking about is how my...

    Conformation Question

    Hi all! Here is probably yet another post about conformation. But I was just thinking today as I looked at my girl about the couple shows I've taken her to. Just open shows, and just for experience. In halter, she always does ok, about middle of the class. But I ALWAYS get the same two...

    Body language

    Hey all! I'm just curious of differences in body language you've noticed between your mini donks and mini horses. I'm having a little bit of a hard time finding much online about what to look for and how to read donks. Merideth Hodges website has been great though and I'm picking up a little...

    Lump in Neck

    Hello! I found a lump last night while grooming May. It's on the front of her neck, about 3 inches down from her jaw. It's hard and about ping pong ball size. My first thought was maybe a lump of something stuck, so I tried massaging it and moving it along, but nothing. Then my very next...

    Tips on Surcingle use

    Hello all! I recently purchased myself a surcingle. I read up as much as I can on what to do with them and how to use them, but sometimes reading and doing don't always translate for me. I think my favorite use was the sliding side reins. So I tried it out. I want to know if I'm doing it...

    Lacing?

    Hey! It's been a while since I've been here, I do miss you. But I got a new job with not near as much free time during the work day (hallelujah!) So I don't spend all my time on forums haha Anyways, I was just going through my phone and found these pictures from last spring after I had shaved...

    Hello All! I've noticed a bit of a change in my little Miss. I noticed a small change in her attitude at a show on the 2nd (extremely high and frisky), and the biggest change at our County Fair horse show the on the 11th of this month. She was a BEAR. She was pinning her ears and heavily...

    Help with my hook up

    Hello all! So, I felt good about how Miss May was driving this year and decided she was indeed ready to be hitched to our new cart. And for the record, she has been an absolute angel! I've hooked horses up before, but that was years ago, and just a few times. I think I've got everything in...

    The new to me cart :D and a couple questions.

    Hello all! I guess I can post this in this section... I just wanted to share a picture of my newest piece of horse equipment. My family and I took a lovely weekend to go stay with my mother's brother. He had offered this cart to me to use when I first got my little Miss, but we've never been...

    How do you do that!??

    Hello again! I hope this is ok if I share a vid. I was watching this video ( ) and was absolutely blown away by the side pass at 1:30. I've been practicing in hand trail with my Miss May, but I am super new to it and really don't know what I'm doing and have never actually seen a class. I...

    Kaley Cuoco got herself a mini

    Hey all. I wanted to share this because I thought it was pretty cool. I've followed Kaley Cuoco (Penny in the Big Bang Theory) for a while, as I love seeing her with her horses and love seeing celebs promoting the horse world. She is an avid show jumper for those who don't know. She's just...

    Open shows in my area?

    Hello all! I don't really like giving out my location... but internet searches and word of mouth aren't getting me very far. And you all seem pretty trust worthy haha. There is a paint horse club that would hold open miniature horse classes in between their classes and gave year end prizes...

    Service/companion Minis

    Hello again all! So I know this has been covered a few times, but I have a few personal questions if I may. I was approached by a gal I've known for a while tonight (we'll call her OS for older sister) who had some questions I didn't exactly know the answers to. Long story short, her younger...

    Wintering the mini: Free choice hay?

    Hello again, I'm here with yet another maybe silly question. I usually feed my Miss May 1 flake of hay 2x a day (about 2 1/2 lbs of grass hay with a TINY bit of alf-alfa mixed in), but since Christmas, it has been quite cold. We haven't had many days above freezing, the week before last being...

    Opinions on fencing

    Hello again all, So my dear Miss May has again, given me one more thing to do around the barn. There used to be neighbors with horses next door, and the fencing between the two properties is a wire electric fence. He had it supercharged and NONE of the horses would even think of touching it...

    I'm to pretty for this

    Hello all! I just wanted to share my "What the heck???" moment from Saturday. I took my Miss May out to ground drive and she did so beautifully on the road. When we got back I hooked her up to a little croquet cart and a bucket of rocks she's pulled around the pasture before with no problem...
