Mini Woods

Mini Woods

Mini Woods

Mini Woods is home to our group of mini mules, hinnies, one miniature horse who rules the roost, and Clarissa. These equines live on a modified “track system” that mimics the way they would live in the wild. They spend most of their day on this open area and track system. The idea is that movement is what keeps them healthy. They do come in in the afternoons for grooming and inspection and spend their nights under the shelters. They play, tussle, eat hay, sleep and generally live their best life under the watchful eye of our barn staff.

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!
