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.
Pinto Bean is an 10yo (2009) miniature paint gelding. He came to to us from a neglect case out of Potter County in December 2017. He was in a very fragile state, but quickly bounced back. Often the favorite among the “minis” with our young volunteers, Pinto Bean greatly enjoys Saturdays and is often photographed by everyone.
