My Horses

**This blog started out being about my Curly Horse. If you read the About Me page you will see how that all changed.

Years ago I had a small family farm called The Ladybug Farm. I raised, trained and showed miniature horses. Life happened and we had to relocate and find homes for our ponies. Now, I have had the opportunity to bring minis back into my life and am lucky enough that my Mom and Grandmother kept a few of our favorite horses!

I love these guys so much. They are all four helping me to heal and they bring me so much joy. I laugh and laugh whenever I am out with them.

I encourage you to learn more about miniature horses. One of my favorite websites packed full of information is L’il Beginnings.

This blog is not about the history of minis so I won’t go into that here, but I do hope you enjoy seeing what we are up to and reading about the products that I am trying out!

Captain Planet

Captain Planet is Sky’s son from 2008. He’s a dun gelding, 36″ tall. He is adorable and gets along with anyone and everyone. He is our farm mascot and our beloved pet. His front feet have grown into club feet so he is not physically able to be a driving horse. He makes a wonderful … Continue reading Captain Planet
