    I just got this idea that I want a mini horse. Before I get ahead of myself I was wondering if anyone can tell me how they get along with other livestock/animals in general. I know alot of it depends on the mini itself and the other animals. But does anyone here have a mini that they keep with goats? Or near dogs?



    Ok. How about mini donkeys and mini cows? Anyone else have any of these? What kind of fencing do you guys use for mini horses, mini donkeys, and or mini cows? Pics of any would be awesome too

    HI! minis are a BLAST! i should know, i have 20 LOL

    we have had our minis in with goats, but the goats seem to really like to eat their tails .lol after that happened, we havent done it again lol

    all 6 of our dogs do great with the minis, but it depends on the dogs and you should never leave a dog unattended with minis unless you can FULLY trust them

    cant wait to see pics of the mini you get!

    Quote:Well its just a thought for right now. I've been seeing alot of them for really cheap if not free on CL because people can't take care of them anymore. So I know I have alot of research to do and I know it won't be anytime soon beings its winter and what not. Just thought I would try and get some opinions from others. I've seen some of yours and they are super cute!
