I have had horses my whole life and have been an animal lover ever since I can remember. I grew up owning and showing Miniature Horses, as well as intermittently riding Spanish Mustangs, Quarter Horses and Arabians. I work in healthcare and am a mother to a beautiful daughter, Jayde who is following in my footsteps. Although I do not own any Miniature Horses of my own now, I am still very involved in my parents farm, Little r Minis. We now reside in Stockton, Utah.
Borris came to our farm from Sherrie Ivey in Grantsville, Utah. Sherrie has bred the finest farm and exotic animals for years. Borris is small, compact and a great example of the breed. He is very kind and loves people. We are excited and honored that Sherrie trusts us to have him.
Liam is where it all began... I have dreamed my whole life of owning a Friesian and found one too good to be true in the Summer of 2016. I instantly fell in love, how could you not?
Liam is 16.2 h and a sleek Sport horse build. He is trained and disciplined in dressage, western pleasure, carriage and liberty work. He is always eager to learn and please. We have a very strong bond and I trust him with my life. This mutual trust allows me to follow my dreams. He has changed my life in so many positive ways. Liam is truly a gentle giant. He is simply magical with a noble, elegant presence that is enchanting. His conformation is spot on and he passes his high knee and hock lift and floating trot on to all his foals.
Splendida AKA "Blondie"
Blondie is a gorgeous 14.3 h Overo Palamino Paint who dapples out each fall with BIG blue eyes and natural eyeliner on both sides. I literally could go on and on about her stunning looks. She is muscled and quick. Blondie in her younger days was used for rodeo-ing and exceptionally well in barrel racing and steer wrestling. She has several national awards. When I acquired Blondie in the Summer of 2017 she had a beautiful creamello colt on her side, she is a wonderful mother and broadmare as well. She had never been riden outside of an arena. She is now a great trail horse and lesson horse as well. She has taught dozens of children and adults how to ride and care for theses wonderful animals.
Bubba is an interesting addition to our farm. I was in the process of rebuilding my arena area I was renting at the time when I was searching local listing for cement pavers and instead found this handsome boy. Of course I could not pass him up. I went to look at him and interview as a new possible home. I fell in love! So like a crazy animal lover I came home with cement pavers that week and a Juliana pig. Bubba is sure to make you laugh until stomach hurts. Bubba previously lived a house with dogs and took on many of the same characteristics. Bubba loves all fruits and veggies and treats of course! He can sit, turn around and litter boxed trained.
Kiara is the newest equine member to our family. She came from Illinios from a friend. She previously lived in a Amish community and used in daily living and work. Kiara is disciplined in western pleasure and carriage. She has foaled out beautiful foals and will continue this at our farm. She is 17 h, very tiny boned and extremely smooth gait. She is an absolute sweetheart to have and we are truly blessed to added her to the farm.
Gerdie and Daisy have grown up together their entire life and actually grew up in the house until about 7 months old. They both love cheerio's and love their food. Gerdie is a registered Juliana Pig. Gerdie came from a breeder in Bountiful, Utah. She has had one litter previously, with 6 piglets. She can sit, turn around and kiss. Both Daisy and Gerdie were excellent mothers and are a great addition to our farm!
Well after Bubba we caught the mini pig fever. They are very intelligent, sensitive and entertaining animals. We got Daisy and Gerdie from lifelong family friends of my families. I was honored when they asked me and entrusted me to take them. Daisy is a registered Juliana Pig and reflects everything in the breed you'd want. Daisy came from a breeder in Grantsville, Utah. She has had one litter previously, with three piglets. She can sit, turn around and kiss.
