Meet our Babies!

On September 1, 2023, we welcomed 2 baby miniature horses to our herd. Meet Buttercup (white/cremello filly, named after the unicorn in Toy Story) and Blue Belle (blue roan filly, named after the 1 of the original 6 My Little Pony horses). 

Both of our babies are in training to become registered therapy horses. For now, that means lots of hugs and kisses and LOVING to be loved!
