Miniature Horses/Miniature horses


I have 3/4 of an acre as land and that includes my house, pool and a massive shed. As for my backyard I have 1/4 of land left and was wondering is that enough land to keep a miniature horse? She would be exercised daily and the grass here is a really good green colour so she should be healthy. Thanks :)

Thanks for your question.  I would say, Yes, that is enough land for a mini.  They require a lot less than a full size horse.  The reality is that it is hard to keep them at a good weight.  I hope it all works out well for you.  When you are ready to teach your horse some tricks, check out my website  Lots of fun with a mini horse!
