Our beautiful Bella is a miniature mare, standing about 38 inches. She arrived at Evermay with pal Hershey who needed a forever home after their owner could no longer financially care for them.
Both Bella and Hershey show signs of stifle, so rubber mats as well as lots of pine shaving are used in the barn to provide cushioning. Stifle or no stifle Bella is boss and will throw her weight around at will! She keeps the other two minis in check and and does a fine job. When Bella gets excited she throws her head in a circular motion.
Taking in miniature horses is no small task. They require the same care and attention as a full size horse. They need their hooves trimmed, to be groomed and require the same vaccinations and vet care as their full size counter partners. They are adorable but the time and expense should be considered before making your home, their forever home.
