I just bought a mini horse for my 6 year old son. It is a 2 year old mare and has temporary pedigree papers... how do you get permanent papers? It seems complicated, unlike my dog pedigree paper work. I'm not sure about showing or breeding my kid is it worth it to have papers? S  he is a great companion for my other horse, and a nice addition to our campgrounds petting zoo. Super cute. Any ideas or advice is appreciated.

    What a great addition to the petting zoo, and nice buddy for your other horse. I bet everybody will love him. I really think its up to you whether you get pedigree papers on it, probably only important if you plan on breeding it to sell pedigee offspring. Here's a good website that is one of the references for this site, MIniature  which has info about  miniatur horse breeders, clubs, award and more.

    Yes, they are fun. I had 3 mini's and one would always jump in my lap, gently but I couldn't get him out of my lap. They were loads of fun.

    Yeah, sweet, mine was called Nero. What were yours named?

    The one that jumped in my lap every time I sat down was black as coal and I named him Blackie. The two females were 2 inches larger and we named them Nicky and Queen. We had 7 large dogs and the horses would run with the dogs (or vice versa) and one time the horses ate the dog good cuz I forgot to cloe the kennel door. Not a good day and definitely a mess but funny. Kids let the horses in the house one day --
    It was fun.

Can 'Miniature Horses' be used as lawn mowers? Or can they be only used as pets.

    Sometimes I think they are but they do not mov evenly and you have to plant a lot of grass. Additionally even minatures need seet feed and plnty of hay. So they eat the grass but they also spread a lot of manure on it. Easier to use a lawn mower.
