    I'm looking for a companion for my 33'' gelding Big Ben.


    Since his buddy Mr. Chips died last a year ago (pushed on by advanced age and Cushings) he's been alone.

    I'm looking for another mini horse or even a mini donkey, in sound health and friendly. Doesn't need to be trained for anything in particular. Preferably not a stallion but we're getting pretty desperate to find him a friend before winter.

    We're just west of the Twin Cities but are willing to drive almost anywhere in the state and Western Wisconsin.

    I started off with 2 rescue horses years ago, Joe and Mr. Chips, both were starving and one was on his way to slaughter. They both had 10+ years of peaceful retirement here. Ben was my cousin's horse who they had to give up when they lost the house. He was a stud, we paid to have him gelded and have been caring for him ever since. For me that includes getting him a companion.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi L&Schickens!

    Rocky looks perfect, what a cutie! Wish we were closer. [​IMG]

    Yeah I've been checking petfinder. [​IMG] There's a mare and foal but I don't have the skills to train a foal, just doesn't seem right for me to take them.

    Thanks for the replies, the search continues! [​IMG]
