Hi!  Welcome to our Website!

I’m “Mom,” and this is a “Senior Citizen’s” dream come true, which proves that you are never too old, or too young, to enjoy these wonderful little equines. Though I have worked with big horses and various sizes of ponies for most of my life, this is my first adventure with these engaging, intelligent and sense-of-humor-sporting little horses. My first experience owning miniatures was in April 2006. They immediately proceeded to win my heart, and I am sure yours, because here you are visiting my website.

 Each horse at “Mom’s Minis” has been carefully selected for the award-winning combination of pedigree and personality. Every horse is imprinted at birth and handled and loved every day, 365 days of the year. We are a small farm by intention, and we believe in providing optimal physical and emotional health for our animals by giving individual attention and social interaction with both humans and equines in a normalized setting. We respect our horses' natural living preference by keeping them in a herd setting and acknowledging their natural instincts in all of our training.

Though we have chosen to specialize in appaloosa miniatures, we will never sacrifice type, quality or temperament to achieve color – hence our motto – "Spots with Class."

 We promise that we will always represent our horses honestly to the best of our knowledge and remain very concerned that any sale of our animals will result in both a satisfied customer and a happy horse. We love our horses and reserve the right to refuse to sell any horse advertised as “for sale,” at any time and without providing a reason.   We are prepared to offer a price adjustment on multiple purchases and to our repeat customers.

 Special Thanks

 We would like to especially thank Susan Sanford of Indian Hill Farm in Middleboro, MA ,who introduced us to our first miniature horse, the beautiful mare Sarah, who started us on this wonderful adventure. Also, both thanks and admiration go out to Barbara McDermott of JBR Ranch in Christmas, Florida, who made it possible for us to own JBR Chocolate Chip, the stallion upon whom our appaloosa breeding program will be based and whose talent created this amazing web site for Mom’s Minis. These are only two of the many who have contributed in making this dream a reality. These individuals are prime examples of the wonderful people who love and promote the miniature horse and are willing to extend this love and encouragement to those of us new to the breed. Mom’s Minis salutes you!
