"Can you imagine a full-grown horse no bigger than a large dog?" Indeed you can, with the help of this appealing book. Patent describes the history of the breed as well as its care, feeding, grooming, and showing. Though she cautions that "minis" are expensive, she adds that less-than-perfect specimens "may be bought for a few hundred dollars." They don't require much space: ". . .two minis can live well on only one acre," and "Feeding a mini costs less than buying food for a large dog." The text and charming full-color photos are so persuasive that readers will be convinced that a miniature horse is an essential purchase. Delightful. Index.
