Here are some pictures of the 2 stallions I am purchasing. They are both 4 years old. They have the same sire. Little Kings Keep Dreamin owned by Camelot Country Miniatures. He is 29" His bloodlines include, Komokos King Tut, Gold Melody Boy, Roan Ranger, Komokos Teanie Jeanie, Komokos Little Husseler, Johnston's Vanilla, Komokos Little Champ, Boones Little Buckeroo, Little Kings Mlady Buckeroo, and Little Kings Madam Buckeroo.

Here is Camelot Country's Duke of Camelot. I was told he measured 34" but he I think he is much smaller than that after seeing him in person. I do not know the correct way to use the minimeasure stick???

His dam has Minute Man, JRS Midget Man, and Rowdy in her bloodlines. What do you think? Should I plan on showing next year???

Here is Camelot Country Ricochet Renogade. (Ricky) He is out of a silver dapple mare who is about 26 years old.







Let me know what you think? I am fairly new at this, but I believe I have some great prospects here. Thanks and Godbless!!!

I am going to try and post a better picture of Duke. Some of his pictures didn't come through for some reason. Please let me know what you think of these two. I am wanting to start showing in the future. I know these two have the breeding for it. They are on the heavy side right now, but could be in show condition next year. I of course have to learn how to clip, trim, and condition properly. I will be bringing them home the end of the month. You can also check out their sire and dams at www.camelotcountryminis.com They have some really nice horses, and some mares priced very reasonable for some. I can't afford them yet, but maybe in the future. Also, how do I measure them properly with a miniature horse measuring stick(the alluminum one). I want to have them measured correctly before we transfer them into my name. Thanks and Godbless, Kristy

I love the colors on both of them and they would probably do very well in color class. Also, I love the white nose on Duke

I don't necessarily need two stallions with the same bloodline. The lady I am purchasing them from would only sell them together because they have been together since birth. I will probably gueld one of them in the future. Just don't know which one. A big part of it depends on their personalities when I get them home. The one who has the best personality will maybe be the better stallion??? Ricky is very gentle. Duke is too, but a little harder to catch. My daughter however pet him all over when she saw them. Ricky would be a great guelding I believe. He would pass on great color though??? Ricky's dam also is great, but Duke's dam goes back to Rowdy and others. Of course Ricky's dam is 25 years old. May have to research her sire and dam??? Mainly I will wait and see which one has the better personality and which one people that have been in the breed longer than I have would choose. I may try and show both of them some so I can learn and get my daughter involved. She is 4 and is horse crazy!!! I love these little guys and will be looking for some great registered mares in the future. I have some great pet quality ones. I only paid 800 a piece for them and Camelot's miniatures are selling for about 1200 to 1500 for yearlings!!! Anyway, I love both of them and can't wait to bring them home. Let me know what you think? Who is the best prospect? Kristy

I am wanting to raise a few for my daughter to show in the future. I don't think I should gueld both of them. Plus, I love them and would love to see some babies out of them. If I gueld one of them in your opinions which one should it be???? Which one do you all think would be better for the show ring next year? I know it would be late. I only plan on showing in some local shows though. Let me know. I am really wanting to learn. Thanks

You could show them both as stallions, and see how they do. That might help you decide about gelding. That helped me as much as anything to start figuring out "what" I should be using for my breeding program which is and always will be a work in progress (always have to do some tweaking).
