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.
