SPOTLIGHT on the “Crew” family Quiero W Submitted by: Trish Crew

e are a relatively "green" family having grown up in the city. We lived in a subdivision until June when we moved to a hobby farm. It was a huge change but not once have we had any regrets! My oldest daughter Emma (9) has a passion for horses and my little one Katie (5) has followed suit. We met a fantastic blessing named Dee shortly after moving in. Dee is a horse enthusiast and owning three horses of her own, she has taken our entire family under her wing to teach us the joys of horse ownership. We all knew we wanted a horse "one day" but being as green as we are wanted to gain more knowledge and experience so we wouldn’t put anyone in danger. Dee had called us one day Katie & Quiero having a lesson with Dee to let us know that her friend Louise was looking to sell her miniature horse and his cart. Dee thought maybe it would be a good stepping stone for our family (since we all love horses). We went to go visit Quiero on November 11th and it was love at first sight! Since then our boy has been staying at our friend Dee's while she teaches us everything about harnessing, driving, saddling, riding and how to properly care for him. He had been such a joy, and we look forward to going over to see him and care for him every day! CMH

How is your minis weight? Not so good

s many of us know, winter is well upon us. Some of us only have an inch of snow where others have none and some like myself have over two feet of snow! With the cold weather, snow and light changes in the fall and early winter months our minis have grown amazing winter coats! Many of us choose to blanket our minis as well to keep our little ones nice and cozy warm. Whether you choose to let your little ones be woolly mammoths or of you choose to blanket your little ones. There is something many of us forget or over look. Many of us forget the importance of feeling our horses to check what kind of body condition they are in. We can not truly see the conditions of our animals when they are hidden under winter blankets or their own woollies. What you may see when you pull off that blanket or run your hands along your minis sides may surprise you. Maybe all your great feed has packed on a little to much pug on sparky or maybe Miss Sassy just isn’t getting the feed she really needs. Maybe Sparky is eating it all. Just taking the time to make sure we pull off blankets or run our hands along our miniatures can make sure they are doing their best and will be ready to go back to work in the spring, whether that be just hanging and going for walks or hitting the show ring. Please, through out the winter, take the time to check your equine friends’ body condition. This can save you a lot of time and money. It can also count as bonding time with your best friend and will help you manage your friends diet to the best of your ability. CMH

The two mares pictured were rescued in September from the same place. as you can see they have huge winter coats where the rest of mine were just starting to wool up. As you can see the sorrel looks like she is in much better body condition. She is definitely in better condition then the buckskin filly. but she is only one number higher on the weight scale. Her big winter coat she grow to protect there skinny body, did a wonderful job at hiding her true body condition.

A little knowledge goes a long way

2014- Year of the Horse

W

elcome to 2014. My goal in producing this magazine is to "Promote the Miniature Horse". I would like to give as much information out there to all who do not realize, how much fun it is to have a miniature horse. To educate that all miniature horses are not the stereotypical "shetland" that everyone heard about when they were growing up, to be mean and unruly...NOT TRUE.. To have the miniature/small horse market grow with excitement on having these little ones. We the breeders and friends would like to receive the good prices which reflect our hard working efforts we have achieved in working and showing these horses. When you advertise in our magazine we are promoting these little guys to “present non-owners” to keep them alive. All the registry magazines only go to members. Its great to promote within the circle of owners, as you know already how great these horses are, but its time to spread the word to those who don’t. We need more people to buy... and see the experience we all see in having these great horses around. I want everyone to sit back and understand the passion I have keeping the "Printed" version available for everyone..I know that the digital is the way of the future, But I enjoy sitting down with my coffee in the morning reading “A” magazine. Don’t forget how nice that is, not just flipping through a digital copy and forget about it..I was told that an I Pad does not have that “just printed smell”. Lets remember why we love these little horses...Lets keep them around..the more people know about them, the more healthy and safe they become, and the less stress we feel when they are around if we are having a bad day...and keep then within our family.

Thank you:

SCOOBY BOO Bidwell Submitted by: Robin Bidwell

e found Boo on Craig's list for sale. We went to see him and actually had never been in contact with a mini before. What we saw was nothing like the photo that accompanied the ad. His hooves had not been done in about 2 years. His joints cracked when he walked. He was visibly uncomfortable even walking. We knew he was coming home with us. We called our farrier to come out and take care of his hooves immediately. We loaded him up in a friend’s trailer and took him home. We immediately got him all the care he had been lacking. Boo will be 12 in January, he was 7 when he became part of our family. He is 29 1/2 inches tall. He is registered by World Class Miniature Horse as a silver dapple stallion. He lives at our home in Lutz, FL with two larger horses and four dogs. My husband Ken and I have 2 children, Parker (23) and Marina (19). Before every visit Boo is bathed and groomed from head to hoof. He wears a braid in his mane and tail. Boo wears high top "Chuck Taylor" type tennis shoes purchased from Build-A-Bear workshop. He needs two new pairs about every 6 weeks. They are necessary to keep him from slipping on the floors inside facilities. He is potty trained. I take 2 plastic containers and ask him to poop in the first. He steps over the container and goes into it. I ask him to pee in the second and he stretches over it and does. He learned this behavior in

four days. He rides in his own mini van. We took out the back seats and put light weight, interlocking rubber mats on the floor. We built a padded rail system to provide as safe an environment as possible. We open the side door and he jumps in. It's much more convenient to pulling and parking a trailer. After our visits we go through the fast food drive thru and get apple pie or apple slices.


A Little horse making a big difference Boo and I visit nursing homes, veteran's homes, rehab centers, schools, mental health facilities and two local hospitals. We go room to room and visit the residents. In some facilities we visit with patients in physical therapy. We started in 2011 and have visited over 400 hours inside over 65 facilities and 30 schools. We presently make 4-6 visits weekly. We also walk yearly for a few charities, Alzheimers, Autism and Brain Cancer. We are currently working with a local hospital to provide a type of hippo therapy to their patients. Helping to rehab children with stability and walking impairments. Currently we are working with the Pasco County school system to provide a one hour clinic at each of

their elementary schools. We educate the children about miniature horses as well as animal assisted therapy. There are usually 75-100 children per group and we give each a chance to meet and pet Boo. We have completed 25 of 36 schools to date. He also visits the University Of South Florida, Tampa campus each semester during their final exams to help reduce stress. In August, Boo was nominated and chosen as Fox 13's Hometown Hero. The segment can be seen at: http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=wZywsCHWATw

We take this voluntary job to heart. We often visit elderly that have been tossed aside by their families, children that have been removed from their homes, teenagers that have taken the wrong road, sick people of all ages that just need a bright spot in their day. We visit where ever a need exists. And the striking part is that Boo himself was once tossed aside. Hope and second chances <3 See Scooby on FB at facebook.com/scooby.boo.com

true gift of the Miniature Pony is that they are easily transferred to elderly resident facilities, school programs and easily accommodated due to their size and manoeuvrability. Their willingness to learn and be of assistance is a huge blessing despite their mini size. Sharing the excitement with both the young and the old has been truly an inspiring contribution. At Connecting in Spirit we celebrate the awareness that ‘Everything is Energy’. We recognize that being joy and tapping into what makes other’s smile and laugh is what brings forth true connection!

Do you ever wonder.. Do You Ever Wonder?

Who Is Inspired By Pony Parties? Submitted By: Adele Harding

I

grew up on a small farm in Southern Alberta, and I can never remember a time when I didn’t desperately want a horse! We had cattle, occasionally sheep, chickens and even ducks, but no horses. These animals were great, but they couldn’t substitute for my passion for horses, and in particular my dream to own a miniature horse! When I was 15 I was finally able to purchase my first full sized horse, and I was able to enjoy owning and riding horses for several years after that, but I never forgot my dream to own a miniature… One day I came across an ad for three adorable little grade pony mares for sale. Here was my opportunity to fulfil my dream, so I jumped at the chance! It turned out that two of these mares were in foal! I will never forget when that first foal was born. She was a perfect little black filly, and I fell in love immediately! I was hooked on breeding miniatures from then on, and eventually began looking for registered stock. I sold the original mares (with the exception of the black filly), and have been building my herd ever since. At one point, when I was boarding my horses out, a relative of my landlords was visiting, and he had a young daughter that wanted to meet my ponies. After introducing them to my herd, the father asked me how much I would charge to do a birthday party for his daughter. The idea of putting on parties had never occurred to me before, but what a great way for me to share my horses with others, especially horse l ov i ng children t h at

don’t have the opportunity to be around horses! I remember the feeling of loving horses without owning one, and pony parties have turned out to be a great way to provide opportunities for fellow horse lovers of all ages to enjoy equine companionship! My party business started out mostly for fun, putting parties on for friends, but in 2013 I took the necessary steps to take it public as well. I travel t o p e o p l e ’s homes,and offer pony rides in their own back yards! I have nearly as much fun putting the party on as the kids have participating in it! I enjoy sharing my miniatures with kids and their parents immensely, and I absolutely adore the temperaments I have found in these ponies! They are willing, tolerant, friendly, and so much fun to work with. I couldn’t ask for better horses to work with, or a more enjoyable way to spend my time with them! I work to integrate most of my breeding herd into my parties as well, even the ones that are too small to be ridden by most children. They can pull the cart, or just come along as petting ponies! My foals tend to be big hits as well, and I believe it is great socialization early on! CMH

Hope and her buddy Zam (pictured below)

n July 16, 2013 – after waiting for FAR to long, a filly was finally born at Wind Swept Miniatures in Regina, Saskatchewan. She was different, I could tell right away when I looked at her on the TV screen. Hope was born with a rare an abnormality called micro -opthalmia – meaning she never fully developed eyeballs. I was forced with a huge decision in front of me. I called my vet and set up an appointment for him to come and fully examine her. He arrived on July 17, did his full exam, and gave me the news that I needed to hear to make my decision. Besides having no eyes; this filly was 100% healthy and normal. This is rare in horses with conditions such as this, and he was surprised, and thrilled, just as I was. So, thus my decision.

foal’s life, just with the slight hindrance of not being able to see. Since the day she was born, she has been my 100% main focus. She is very intelligent, bright, happy, and has so much personality, it could melt anyone’s heart! She is the best lunger, the best baby I’ve ever had to break to halter, and now my best friend. She quickly stole the hearts of my family and friends. I have plans to do therapeutic work with Hope when she is older – nursing homes, disabled children camps etc. It should be known that even though life throws you a curve ball, you can always make the best of the situation. Hope brings me such joy, and love. She was my eye opener (No pun intended ). Not everything can be perfect, but they can bring you more joy then you could ever imagine. CMH

Loon’s Call Farm Miniature Horses

A

Submitted By: Valerie Gravelle

lthough I have had horses in my life for almost fifty years, I didn’t get involved with miniature horses until 2002 with the purchase of a weanling colt Sunfires Robin Bobbin and a two year old stallion L’il Beginnings Tango Tango. Before bringing my boys home to our eleven acre farm in Trent River Ontario, I entered them in the Norfolk Country Fair and Horse Show on the Thanksgiving weekend. Both horses placed in the top five in their respective classes, with Tango taking first place in the Senior Stallion class against horses with more show ring experience. Since this was my first time showing, I was very pleased by how well Tango and I had done, although I give Tango all the credit for our success. In 2003, I bought my first mare L’il Beginings La Reina, from her breeder Mary Lou McEachern. She was soon joined on the farm, by quality miniature horses from Minnesota, Colorada, Florida and Illinois. After my divorce, I re-established myself in the beautiful Haliburton Highlands about 100 kilometres north of Peterborough, on a 30 acre farm and Loon’s Call Farm was born! Eventually I was able to buy back my minis from my husband who’d won them in the divorce settlement. I gradually added a number of horses with Boones Little Buckeroo in their pedigrees, to form the basis of my breeding program specializing in Alvadars Double Destiny and Ima Boones Little Buckeroo Too bloodlines. I am eagerly looking forward to my foal crop in the spring of 2014! CMH
