Adorable!



There is a farm about a mile down the road from us called Goat Flower Farm. They raise fainting goats and miniature horses. The owner has asked if my daughter could come and help with training one or two of the young minis to carry a rider. Of course we were delighted! So we ventured over there yesterday and were thrilled to discover that one of the minis had a foal this week. He's so small the owner carried him out to the field. Just around 34 pounds at birth! I have never been around minis before so I am just blown away by how cute and tiny they are. Had to share some photos of our morning. I really like the goats too. May have to paint one soon!








Thank you so much Zan, from Wild at Heart Farm, for my latest blog award!

I want one for my back yard! Thanks for sharing pictures of the cutest foal I have ever seen!

Julia said...

Wow I just saw your horse head on two of my favorite sites GA Farmwoman and Red Pine Mountain in the followers and had to come visit. So glad I did. Your art work is beautiful. And the foal is fabulous too! I will have to come back and visit.

I have 3 horses at home and ride dressage. I am going to look at your Etsy store next.

Neat photos and what a bunch of cuties those minis are! =0)

Brimful Curiosities said...

My daughter would so love the miniature horses. Neat pics!

Anna said...

AWE that Baby is SOO cute!! I'm not having any foals this year. I love having foals around, but the economy isn't right not for adding more horses to the population for many people. Those goats are cuties also.

Minis are like potato chips - you can't just have one! Our minis are a lot of fun to be around. The baby is way too cute!

Krissy said...

That is so adorable!! I love horses and always have! I want my daughter to learn how to ride, but we live in NJ, so it's probably nearly impossible.

Youvegotmaille said...

aw, that's exactly my little dream farm, fainting goats and minis (and a rideable horse or three).

Can't wait to see more pictures.
