About this site
I have been into horses all of my life but miniatures have played a major part of my life for the last few years. For such high maintainence animals it surprises me the lack of information or the trouble I have finding information on all sorts of things. With miniatures it seems like you are dealing with a whole different animal to a horse and there seems to be a lack of information for Australian Miniature Horses so I am hoping to coalate and provide information needed in the one area. Some of the things I have found is if you treat a Miniature Horse like a full grown one it can mean death to your Miniature so felt the need to publish a site. Thanks for reading and please come back as often as you like and need.
