Misty was added a year later. They actually bought her when she was 5 months old. She is also a miniature horse. She is of the taller variety not those itty bitty ones. Since they got her when she was young she is very friendly. She will let all the grandchildren pet her and will eat out of their hands. When some of the kids were smaller they would sit on her back and I would walk her around some. We don't have a saddle so they don't ride her. They just enjoy petting her and feeding her. The horses have been put together for the last year and so far no babies. So we think Buddy might be a dud. That is ok though. We still enjoy them.
Buddy and Misty share the pasture with the two Nubian Goat Wethers that my son takes to the fair. When he is working with the goats Misty gets a little jealous and comes up and wants to be petted too!!
The horses are fun for my parents, us kids, and the grand kids as well. They don't eat as much as the regular sized horses either, so they take less to maintain. And as you can see they are not going without food!!
