So, you want a miniature horse. They're so cute, right? How hard could it be to own one, right? They're a horse, just put 'em outside on grass, right?
If you answered "yes" to 2 out of the 3 questions (we can't deny they're cute!) then we encourage you to attend our FREE educational seminar on what it takes to own a Miniature Horse.
