    Your Drive Day

    Hi to everbody! How are you in this crazy times? I hope you're all okay and healthy! We still are. Due to the lockdown and the fact I have to work in home office, I have more time to enjoy with my minis. I drove a lot in the past few weeks. We don't have a really strict exit lock in Switzerland...

    Your Drive Day

    Thanks for sharing, Mindy! The former owner of my mini Teddy used to drive bitless with a caveson. She recommended me to drive him bitless. I tried it twice, but it didn't work. Grass was always too attractive for him and he've learned from the former owner how to NOT obey with the bitless...

    To Clip the Mini or Not?

    I clip my minis all winter long, because they're working hard and they get breathing issues whit than fur. Usually, I start with clipping the throat/neck/breast and a part of the belly. When they're sweating or breathing too hard at work with that pattern, I continue part by part until they're...

    Your Drive Day

    Thanks for the compliments, folks :) oh yes, it was confusing the first time. They didn't unterstand that they had just to walk immediately, but now, they're all used to it and love it. I mostly use the treadmill only for 5-15 minutes to warm them up or to pass the time while I'm grooming...

    Your Drive Day

    Thanks MajorClementine :) If you're not yet in a good running condition, I suggest to start running without horses first, and add the horsey later. It's a lot of fun to run with miniature horses! They definitely love it and it's very good for their shape. -------------------------- We did only...

    @Cayuse sorry to hear about Peanut :-( I hope he gets well soon! Yes, I drove him a few times last year. He was the most motivated driving I've ever had :) Thanks Mindy! Sometimes, I wish I'd more time to drive my minis, but since I'm working as a software developer, I've that need to move...

    Mini mare bullied by goat

    I agree, I would separate them too. Get another horse for the little mare, she will be happier that way. Does the goat attack the other goat too? I'm not sure if your goat has the same issue as our goat had, but maybe this story can help: We had two african dwarf goats (males) long time ago, and...
