    It's Amazing What A Year Can Do

    It is amazing the difference a year of growing and good feed can make. I won Fly last year in a program put on by our club, the Western Canadian Miniature Horse Club, called the Youth Incentive Program. I brought him home in August last year and by this spring you never would have known it was...

    New AMHA showmanship patterns/rules help

    Ok, so these new AMHA showmanship patterns have me confused. It's not actually the new patterns that confuse me but rather what you are supposed to do before and after the pattern. With the original three patterns you entered the ring counter clockwise and lined up side by side at the direction...

    Funny Picture

    Someone managed to snap this picture of Drifter and I this summer at a show when I wasn't looking. It was a long day, starting to rain, and we had to wait outside the barn/ring because there were too many spectators inside. I laughed so hard when I saw this picture. You can tell how Drifter and...

    Horse sucking on tails...

    I couldn't figure out why Bear was missing a spot of fur and a chunk of his tail. It is up at the base of his tail so at first I thought it could be worms, even though I hadn't seen him rubbing his tail, so I wormed everybody. Then I thought maybe he had lice that I couldn't see and was going to...

    How to teach a horse to move away from the whip?

    My newest addition is proving to be a bit of a challenge. He is generally a sweet little guy but he responds to training techniques quite different from how my other horses have. I am trying to teach him to move away from the whip. He won't even be two until the spring so I'm not looking to...

    Helpful article on feed types

    I recently came across this article and thought it was worth sharing. I know there are many new horse owners on the forum that would enjoy the information.

    Sport Pony Class?

    I'm helping my friend decide what classes to enter her section A Welsh in at an all breed pony show. (Well they call it all breed yet they won't let minis in ) She has never shown before and we are not familiar with a few of the terms used so I thought I might try asking in here. There are all...

    My Little Bear

    This summer my horse Lorick Llea Little Bear had the amazing experience of winning Grand Champion Senior Gelding under one of the judges. This was our first ever Grand Champion and I was so proud. I'll admit I bawled like a baby I was so happy. It was even more special because it was the first...

    What should we do?

    At one of our shows this summer incorrect paper work was sent in to the AMHA. All of our paperwork was right..we entered the correct classes etc. But it seems who ever was doing the paper work after the show to send to AMHA just wrote my brother's name for most of our placings. So it means that...

They have always nibbled at it but now they are eating chunks :DOH! . so I'm really thinking they need some minerals. Right now they get a 12% complete feed, grass hay, a little bit of corn oil and...
