    How many of you help out With the vet

    If I have called the vet then it obviously was because I couldn't do it myself, or know what the problem was. Like others have said, we also are "gophers" for the vet. I have had the vet ask me "what did they have to say on the forum" since in the "world of miniatures" there is a "wealth of...

    Fun Shows

    I agree, there are many youths that are excellent drivers and better than the adults who are "green" drivers.

    Safe Barn heater?????

    I agree with Dr.Taylor. I hate the frozen pails and the freezing hands up here in the frozen north but our horses always winter well.

    Fun Shows

    If you were having a small Fair miniature horse show (15 classes) is there a good way to fit one driving class into the show. Personally, I would have some concerns with youth and adults in the same class, for safety reasons. Has anyone seen it done, and what were the ground rules?

    AMHR sanctioned show

    I have watched the Nationals and it doesn't seem like the ladies showing in halter classes are wearing hats. The men seem to be wearing cowboy hats in a lot of cases. What are the judges looking for with regard to this?

    Do you breed on foal heat?

    We pasture breed here. I have never had any mare interested in allowing the stud near her for that first heat. Nature takes it's course on Nixons Hill.

    Clippers Whats Best?

    I love the Andis 5 speed and I think they are used by the Clipper Girl.

    Andis 5 speed were recommended to me. I haven't tried them yet so I am waiting impatiently for some extended warm weather, here in the frozen north. I had Double K's and sold them. I use the heavy duty Clipmaster in the spring for the heavy growth and will use the finer Andis for the...

    I Love My Barn

    We are living on the farm where I was born and raised 72 years ago. In 1988 when both my parents passed away the farm had to be sold as the will instructed, so we "bought the farm". We hadn't planned to end our years working harder than we ever did in the business world, but here we are. I...

    AMHA Sanctioned shows

    I would like to communicate with any of the forum members who are focused on "A" size horses and can provide information or feedback on having shows and events strictly devoted to the small horses. I am aware of the Smallest Horse Group in the U.S. and I will talk to that group as well.
