NORTH CAROLINA MINIATURE HORSES
WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF MINIATURE HORSES
Mini's are a wonderful delight for horse lover's that are not able to ride and still want that interaction between horse and man, woman and child. We are a small farm that just fell in love with the miniature horses. You may be able to follow our little trail.
Flash, Her Dame and her newborn colt were our first purchase. I was buying my quarter horse, and we walked past a stall that had these little white, dirty tiny creatures. I asked what they were and the girl said. "Oh they are miniature horse, their malnurished and will die by the end of the month. " I was horrified. They looked at me with those big brown eyes then they looked down at their filthy stall. I said ask him how much he wants for them. He charged me as much as I paid for my beautiful Shadow. But I couldn't let them die.
We were not prepared to buy 1 horse let alone 4. Luckily I had the Tobacco Barn rebuilt and had some stalls for them. We had no pasture fencing, just posts. The previous people took all the fence boards. So Jim attached each one of them to a cinder block so they could graze.
What fabulous creatures. Just amazing when you have the baby in your arms and say this is our new baby. Truly remarkable, their hooves are no bigger around than a silver dollar, and they weigh about 5-10 lbs when born.
Most of our horses are registered American Miniature Horse Association & American Miniature Horse Registration, double registration due to their pedigree and size. We have all sizes from 27" high to our larger B mini's.,we have some that are just beautiful horses no higher than 34". See our Mares and babies and New Arrivals and Fun Tabs they are still coming..
We socialize with our little ones, no matter what age. They listen for their names or sometimes I just call out "Okay Girls Come Here" and I also whistle for them. They come running . There is not one horse here that will kick or bite.
I get right down with them in the pasture, they love human contact. I have had a few that when they came close to you if you didn't jump fast enough you would get kicked. We ended that, and now when those horses come up to me in the pasture with their nose turned up to me I cannot believe they are the same horse.
When it's cold out I put blankets on them, it looks like a bunch of little easter eggs in the pasture. But they all stand still while I blanket them up, or take their blankets off. Too cute, even the little babies stand still.
