    Footing for Paddock

    Thanks LostandFound, candycar, Marsha Cassada, and Kelly. This is great information. The geotextile and pea gravel sound like very nice options, but I can understand how the pea gravel would travel. We did rock paths around the pens and sheds on our property, and where we used pea gravel it has...

    Footing for Paddock

    Hi all, Now that I have had these two minis for years in the same paddock, the earth beneath them decided to become a mud pit when it rains. :( Their pen is large, and we did nothing for footing, just let them trample it to dust, which worked for years, but now, when it rains, the place is...

    Do you currently own miniature horses?

    We have two minis. Lillie and Pippin, and we have had them for almost 4 years now. They are little pets to us, we do not show or drive them. Lillie is a redish brown color, and Pippin is Silver Dapple/Brown color. They are both so cute!

    Barn & Bed Down Photos! Where do your horses live?

    Hi everyone! Here is a picture of our lean-to shed when we were just building it. I do not have any current photos of it, but this is what it looked like, it is much larger now than when this picture was taken. We keep our 2 minis in a large paddock with a large lean-to that can also keep them...

    Growing Our Farm - A Question Regarding Foals

    Hi Everyone! It has been a while since I last was on here. Anyway, I had a question regarding foals. So, we have the land, and are considering making our little "farm" a bit bigger (adding more animals). We want to get a few sheep eventually, and more minis. A friend, who is downsizing her...

    What I Found from Researching My Minis' Pedigrees

    Hi all, I don't know why it took me so long to research my minis' pedigrees, but I did it now. I found that my "Pippin" (as I call him, it is not his registered name) has Roan Ranger and Skip A Star in his pedigree. I looked them up, and I found that they were really well known show horses. I...

    Best Kind of Wagon or Cart for Uneven Ground

    Thanks! I have not seen that website before. Just a question, would a single mini be able to pull one of the wagons not as a team, or would that be too much weight?

    Best Kind of Wagon or Cart for Uneven Ground

    Hi, Thanks for the responses. I have not quite decided whether I want to drive them as a team or single, but probably as a team, so I would probably get a buggy. I found some nice looking ones on Silver Penney Farm. Here is the link... Please let me know...

    Best Kind of Wagon or Cart for Uneven Ground

    Hi, well, it has been a while since I last wrote on this forum... Okay, some information first, I am interested in having a professional teach our minis how to drive (just for pleasure, not competing). We have very uneven ground in our fields, not hills, but bumps on the ground. It would be...

    Hi, There is a wildfire not 12 miles from where I live. It is almost 500 acres. Let me know if there are any wildfires near you. Also, are you shooting fireworks today? I am not, it is way too dry here. Thanks, Tess
