~ Miniature Horse Information Pages


Information all miniature horses owners should know.


On the following links you will find some pertinent information about miniature horses that I have collected over the years.  Some of this will be from my own experiences, some from others but all invaluable.

 This information will be updated and added to regularly.  If you have a tip or trick, medical information or something that you feel others need to know then by all means e-mail me with it and I will add it here.
*Some Underlined links will take you to another Website and will open in a new window.

If I have added something of yours that you would rather not have here, by all means please let me know and I will remove it.
