Interesting Facts About Miniature Horses:
There's not a national registry for minis; example AQHA & APHA.
Their height is measured by the last hair on their mane and not their withers.
Aside from dogs, mini horses are the most popular animal used for guide/service animals.
In terms of pulling capacity, minis are stronger than a standard sized horse.
They can pull 4x their body weight while standard horses can only pull 2x their weight.
CoCo is 14yo (2005) gelding, who came to Dove Creek in 2009 as a companion to Little Bear. They are best friends and very hard to tell apart! They are often seen together, roaming with the herd and other barnyard animals. CoCo is a favorite with the young volunteers since he is so short. He loves being groomed and is great being led around on halter.
