Mini Heaven Barn

Mini Heaven Barn

Mini Heaven 

Mini Heaven is our barn home to special needs miniature horses. Most of the minis in this village require intensive care, treatment, and medications. Behind Mini Heaven are a series of “dry lots” where our minis can spend time with each other just relaxing and another “track” that leads to the trees at the back of the mini area. You’ll often see our minis napping and eating hay at the special mini hay feeder and sometimes racing each other to the barn!
