Caring for your horse
Hopefully the rain will stop and the mud will dry! Looks like the mama’s are heavy in foal and won’t be long til some babies on the ground. Just want some dryer weather for them.
Even though 2020 was such a terrible year, we did get some new bloodlines added to the herd. Several new nice mares and a brand new black and white stallion! Can’t wait to see what the babies will look like. I know a lot of you are interested in the babies we should have in the next month or so. Once they arrive, we will be offering some of our older broodmares for sale. They are wonderful very small foundation horses that would make a great broodmare if you are just getting started in the miniatures. Contact us to see what we will be selling this spring.
I finally got some pictures of the babies born in 2018. They aren’t brushed and cleaned up, but we got them all photographed and measured so I can get their registration papers in. If anyone is looking for a teeny tiny stallion we have one for sure.? Most are very small, especially since the majority of our horses are very tiny, less than 30″! Here’s a few pictures of rounding them up for pictures. You can see the new foals for sale here.
This is the tiny stallion measuring at only 22″.? ?He was born last April.
?This is two of our mares with their foals.? The little black filly is only 24″ born last April as well.

We have several tiny babies for sale. They are ready to wean off, hopefully this week, now that the hurricanes have past. We’ve got a tiny, tiny stallion that will make a super therapy horse or breeding sire. Hopefully, I’ll post some pictures this week. Please keep checking back for future posts.
This year has been a remarkable year with our babies going all over the country to their new homes.
We have some very excited customers who received some of our best horses and foals. I’m happy that they went to such loving families.
Thank you for all who have requested information on our horses. We have one little stallion left from last year’s 2015 crop that is still quite small and
very colorful. We have plenty of quality breeding stallions for sale and several mares that hopefully will be foaling soon.
We have a large selection of minis of all colors and mostly small. If you are looking for a good bred mini or breeding stallion, we have something to suit every price range.
Give us a call or email and see what we have available for you.
We had a tiny colt born on Saturday. This was the first foal born to our Mare, Shady Oaks Pumpkin. She didn’t have any milk at first, but if finally came in after giving her some shots to bring the milk in. The little guy is solid white with one dark black spot on the top of his head. He is very tiny and very strong. Just as cute as ever. See his picture.
I just wanted to say “thank you” for having such a nice, informative web site. I am getting a Mini colt(11 months), and it has been 20 years since I have had mini’s. I grew up with 2 as a child, and have a full size horse now, but wanted a “refresher” course. I have searched long and hard on the net, and there has been a lot of vague info, but your site was very helpful.
Thanks again! Sincerely,
