LOL! Well, we had looked into getting a miniature horse because our vet said I have a great pasture with way more than sufficient grass for one in addition to my goats, but seeing as how I am "winging it" so to speak with having a farm, I have hesitated. I didn't grow up on a farm, but always wanted one and finally got my dream about 6 years ago. Not sure i am ready for a horse. Don't they require EXTREMELY alot??? I am not sure exactly how to care for them. Although, each animal on the farm was a first for me. I think I have found my nitch in goats, chickens, and ducks. Probably wouldn't have gotten a pig if my pot bellied , Hamlett, didn't need rescuing quick. He was in a bad situation and needed a home right away. Have been thinking about trying sheep and a turkey at some point. I WOULD GIVE MY LEFT EYEBALL FOR A MINI SICILIAN DONKEY, but as I mentioned, the neighbors would be horrible about it, so I can't. I get REALLY REALLY REALLY attached to my animals, and love them so much, so if they complained, I would just crumble to have to part with it! If you have any horse advice, please do PM me! I'd love to hear about how to care for them, and what they are like.
