The following pages contain photos of miniature horses born on our ranch over the last 30 years. We strive to breed for small colorful foals. Carefully studying our color matching of mares with stallions and what they produce from year to year. Color along with size and conformation are what we have strived for over the years. Trying to produce the best smallest, colorful miniature horse foals possible. We take our breeding program very seriously and all our time, effort and work are based around the miniature horse. On the following pages you will find 175 past miniature horse photos.
We are dedicated to the breed of the miniature horse. During foaling season we stay up for approximately 100 nights watching the broodmares, while still continuing to do all the necessary work during the day. We strive to hand deliver each and every miniature horse foal that is born. Each brood mare and foal is kept in the barn with turnout for the first 30 days after being born. All our miniature horses are grain fed each and every day of the year. We wean our foals at 4 months of age. After that they are grain fed twice a day, with non rationed hay, plus turnout during the coolness of night on fertilized pasture. All the foals are led on a halter while here at the home place during turn out time. They are handled on a daily basis the first 30 days after they are born. All the foals have their ears, chin, and leg hairs clipped during this time. They are wormed twice the first 30 days along with their dams. At weaning time they are tied up and led with a halter. They get their necessary shot and are wormed on a 6 week interval. They are all body clipped once they settle down from the weaning process. 100% of our time, effort and work is based around the miniature horse. Our days are from 8 hours in the off season of foaling up to 20 hours during the 3 1/2 months of foaling season. We take pride in the number of foals we have hand delivered over the past 65 years and the lives we have saved by being with the miniature horses at foaling time.
