We have had our baby mini for 9 months. She will a year in a few weeks. We are getting another yearling today. How would you suggest we introduce them?

It should go pretty easily since they are both young. Let them be side by side with a fence between them for a day or two, you'll see them buddy up, then you should be fine putting them together. If you don't have anywhere to put them side by side where they have contact with each other I'd hold the new one on a lead outside the paddock for a bit so they can say hi the first time through the fence. As long as there aren't any fireworks put them together. Good luck, looking forward to pictures 🙂
