    Buying a mini unseen out of state?

    I have bought many minis out of state and actually bought one mini and one Gypsy Cob out of the country (UK and Sweden). I had photos and for the mini, a video. I have been pleased with all my purchases. Just remember to ask questions! Tammie

    Shaving Heads and Necks in the Winter

    Yes, the head and neck shaved will affect how warm the horse will be. I am in the Northeast and winters are cold so we don't clip at all after September 1.

    Did I just mess up?

    We use stonedust for our paddocks. It's great for muddy areas. I think pea gravel will also work well. Tammie

    How do you test for Falabella in minis?
