Before considering adopting any animal, please thoroughly research the animal and also consult a veterinarian. Educate yourself as much as possible about the animal you are interested in as this will give you and your adopted animal the best chance at a successful, happy and healthy life together.

1) Miniatures are known to founder easily if allowed to graze in a pasture. It is best to keep your mini on a dry lot and feed grass hay only. A rich green pasture can be deadly to these little guys-so do not be tempted to allow grazing.
3) There is grain designed specifically for a mini horses needs. Grain is fed sparingly. Follow the instructions as directed and consult a veterinarian.
4) A mini horses hooves are a top priority-they MUST be trimmed regularly, at least every 6 weeks! Good hoof care is an essential part of having a mini or any hooved animal for that matter.
5) A miniature horses teeth are notorious for having dental issues, hooks and waves, etc. and MUST be examined and floated as often as recommended by your veterinarian.
6) When considering a mini as a companion for a regular sized horse; A) Mares cannot be kept with stallions. B) A mini can be severely injured or killed if kept with a large animal. C) A mini cannot be on the same diet as a regular sized horse.

Miniatures are very cute, fun and have a lot of personality! They are an absolute joy and they certainly are worth the effort it requires to keep them happy & healthy. Every animal requires a certain amount of required care. The more you know about the animal you are interested in having as a part of your family-the better for you, and for them.

- Be responsible. Their success depends on you. -
