Would like either…. As long as it stays under 23” full grownAre you referring to an actual genetic dwarf or just a tiny mini?
I want a female so I can dress her up when taking her to see children with cancer. I beat cancer last year and this is my way of giving back.I wouldn’t pay “BIG” money for a dwarf, but if you want to rescue one and give it a good life then go for it. I would pay “BIG” money for a tiny correct mini.
I wouldn’t be on a search for dwarfs either, but if one falls into your lap and you have lots of money to spend and want to help one out, then by all means go for it.
My tiny Thunder is a dwarf with minimal characteristics, he coliced 4-5 times last year and he is only 2 and a half now. He also has some deformations issues internally that you can’t see. For example, the vet has to hold his head at an awkward angle to get the tub down his nose when he is colicing… among other issues. He is only 28 inches tall which is tiny….. and only 23 inches when I first brought him home.
I agree with Elizabeth. Save your money in vet bills and spend your money on a tiny correct mini. Don’t go for a dwarf unless you are experienced and have lots of money to spend constantly in vet bills.
Oh… and Tony at Little Americas is wonderful and very honest!!

And a filly? Why specifically a filly? Surely you won’t be breeding her?
Exactly!! Originally I was thinking of using my dwarf Thunder as a therapy type horse, but he wasn’t having any part of that. He isn’t a people person, he is more of a one woman type horse.…and he sometimes lets my hubby pet him…but only sometimes.choose based on personality.…. Not all minis are suited for that kind of work.
Thank you!Congratulations QPDOLL!
You have a beautiful plan, and it is hard to beat the child (of any age) and pony connection! Look at everyone on this forum!
The wonderful thing about this forum is all of the experiences people share and lessons learned.
All of my minis have taken part in a variety of activities over the years including preschool and nursing home visits. They range in size from 30“ to 35” so none are dwarf. I appreciate their good health as traveling, visiting, showing, etc can be stressful for them as well as us. (Remind me to tell you one day about our one ton truck, 20’ stock trailer, 4 minis, two grandchildren, a Target parking lot, and the back right end of an innocent Honda suv )
The minis have grown older along with us and now range in age from 16 to 30. I am grateful for our years together!
When you look at minis you may find that connection with a mini and size will have little to do with that bit of magic!
Enjoy the search!
They don't have to be micro size to go visiting in care centres. Jasmine is 36" and she fits in the elevator and goes into rooms, even crowded ones, just fine! The disposition is far more important than the tiny size. Congratulations on your success and bravo for giving back and inspiring others!I want a female so I can dress her up when taking her to see children with cancer.
