Rarely do I buy a miniature horse any more. I have way too many already to justify just one more.
But this spring I received an email from a breeder in Malta, Illinois.
She was interested in one of my filies, so after some discussion a trade was worked out.
Sunny was shown as a 2 month old at HAMES and was a perfect little gentlemen.
After spending some quality time with Sunny, Wendy and Mike it was time to head home with Sunny.
"Sure, you can do it little boy," I said.
"I don't know, it's pretty high up there but here goes," and with one colossal jump in he went.
"So what do you think? How do I look in here?" said Sunny.
Wendy climbed in to say her goodbyes to Sunny.
Sunny assured mommy, "Yes mommy, I promise to be a good little minis. I will brush my teeth, and eat all my hay every night."
I think I saw a tear coming out of Wendy's eyes as she left little Sunny in the van ready to head off the farm and on to a new adventure.
It was a two hour drive, and Sunny was very well behaved.
Arriving at home, Sunny looked out and said,"Wait a minute, that's a big jump outta the van. I don't think this is what I was planning on."
"I wantta go home, no you can't make me get out!!" said Sunny.
Needless to say, it took a little convincing, but finally Sunny left the safety of the van and trotted down to meet his new family.
In a few days I will post again with photos of Sunny in his new home.
If you want to see baby photos of Sunny visit:
Sunny is a true blue eyed baby. His sire is Boones Little Buckeroo Too Shadow, a 27.5 inch, Top Ten BTU son. His dam is Serenity Acres Bonnie Blu Eyes, so now you know where those baby blues came from. I just love blue eyes on a mini!!
