I love my miniature horses to death but my dream one is a gypsy vanner or a Friesian, I heard they are hot so I probably wouldnt get one though.
My fiance`s family has a bunch of horses in Colorado we are going to import. He has a huge paint saddlebred cross!
AMHA or AMHR are great places to get educated about miniatures horses.
Fun fact : A miniature horse is just that. If two photos were taken of a full size and a miniature horse, the pictures should look like it was scaled down. Meaning that a mini should have excellent conformation and proportion.
The tiny tiny miniature horses can have hints of dwarfism meaning they are not portioned. Their legs may be too stubby or their necks too short and they have a under or overbite. The Miniature Horse world aims at small but very correct minis. I have been in the world for over 11 years and learned a lot. A Miniature horse can also come in ANY horse color from the basics to extremely unique. The pintoaloosa being one, feel free to google. :) PM me if you are interested in this amazing breed.
If raised right, a miniature horse is not a tempermental horse. They should be very quiet and friendly, sometimes if neglected, they can be flighty. Our are raised straight from birth so I have never been kicked or bit or hurt by ours.
