I show up today at my house for lunch and what is in my north field? Not just my usual parade of Boer goats begging to be played with but a very small and quite beautiful miniature pony! My uncle thought that my kids needed a pony so he went out and purchased one then dropped it off in my field! I have to admit that the little fella is quite good looking and stout but a pony???? My large boer whether is bigger then this little guy!

So, I am going to read up on miniature pony's but thought I would check here as to whether this guy can stay in with my goats? I am hoping that he will require about the same amount of care as my goats. He's used to being a pasture all day but I am afraid of him foundering? Should I not be worried? He came from a wonderful horse farm about 40 miles from us. They are known for thier horses so my uncle really spared no expense. I just am not quite sure what type of headache I am in for!!

Did you know in the old days people ran goats with horses becasue the goats will eat vegatation that horses cannot. I have a registered Arab running with 40 boer, 10 Toggs, and 5 others and they get along great.

I wish my 1/2 Arab/1/2 MO Fox Trotter would behave
around small animals.. I have to keep them
separated from any type of smaller species.. She
kicks the snot out of them.. My horses got in the
other pasture the other day with the small jersey
calves I have.. I have a pretty big pasture over
there.. I thought well I'll let the horses eat
over there for a while.. sure enough one of those
jersey calves got too close to Finesse she did a
double back kick and knocked the poor little thing
clear over full circle.. I've also seen her kick
hogs almost to death.. Needless to say.. don't mix
her.. She likes the pony.. in fact I'm 'fraid she
might be pregnant

Is it a miniature pony or a miniature horse? I love the miniature horses. I am trying to talk sShelby into gettin gone of those instead of a big one when we move, but she says she wants to ride.

The goat and pony will be good friends before long.

Alot of breeders keep a companion goat with their brooder stock.

Just call the place he came from and ask what they think. I personally don't think he'll have any trouble, but what do I know!?

Congratulations! What's his name gonna be?
