Gunner is one of the kids personal ponies, he sure can take care of them and puts up with them learning how to ride on their own 💗
Blues Clues had a stunning little filly pony May 1st. She is a sassy, fiesty little peanut too!
Now we have to figure out a name 💞
We are finally getting caught up!! Check out these two!
White, male, 16, lead line broke, independent riding with a kiddo that has the basic knowledge of how to direct him. He does have his right eye removed, it doesn't hinder him one bit and half the time I forget it's missing since those long lush locks cover that side anyway.
Dark Brown, male, 4, lead line broke
Both are super safe on the ground with littles, they are great for teaching them how to be safe around horses, for them to learn how to groom, care for them etc....
I forgot to get heights so I will update with those tomorrow.
PM for any more information(including costs) due to Facebook's flagging
"Wind" is a 2yo Welsh Cross.....its safe to say our ponies are desensitized and get lots of kid time!
**Wind is sold and goes to her new home Saturday**
With all this wet weather we thought it would be the perfect time to remind pony/mini owners to be super cautious with your little ones and wet green fast growing pastures! Ponies and Minis are super susceptible to foundering on spring pastures, especially ones that are fast growing due to wet weather!! Even if you have owned that pony/mini for 10 years and its grazed the same pasture for 10 years, changing growth and moisture conditions can change the way your pony/mini is digesting the grass in the gut, especially some of the chubby ones out there! Dry Lot and feeding hay is optimal during most the spring, you can always allow pasture in limited time frames, and preferably in the morning hours when sugar content of grass is low!!! Never directly following rain!Exercise is also great in prevention, and grazing muzzels while turned out in the pasture are perfect for this.
Spring Cleaning time with 3yo mini gelding "Hoot"
Our Pony Whisperer was hard at work today with this wild bunch
I've been getting a ton of requests for another raffle! So what would everyone be intrested in for the Raffle!?
I'll post detailed info on each later but for the basics we have....
Mini Paint Mare(lead line started)
3yo Mini Brown Gelding(unstarted)
2yo Welsh cross filly(unstarted)
Yearling Welsh Cross Colt
6yo Mini Mule Gelding(Unstarted)
13yo Grade Small Mare(Completey kid broke and kid safe)
11yo Paint Pony Mare(Completely kid broke and kid safe)
Meet Joe!! He will be joining us later this week! As you can see one of our little trainers has already spent some time on him but he will still be needing some more riding and kid time.
We will also be a little extra picky about his future owners, this guy has gave a lot and he deserves the perfect home/kiddo and job!
Everyone meet Hoot and Jaws!!! They will be starting their training after a few days of adjusting to their new environment. We will be adding another mini this week as well so stay tuned!!
**SOLD w/ 4 weeks additional training**
2yo Welsh Cross Filly
This little lady was born on the property. She is halter broke, stands tied, stands to be trimmed, has had lots of kid time and grooming done by kiddos. She is still learning to load into the trailer but does it perfectly 90% of the time. She will start getting saddle this month and by spring she will start getting a few small rides. She has been around our mini bull and is currently his pen buddy!
She is perfect for a little older kiddo to have a project and even start her for a younger sibling! Her Dam is an amazing kids horse!! The 2nd collage is the filly as a weanling, with the bottom right photo being a photo of her dam who was 50inches tall. This filly should mature 50-52inches.
Get her now before she gets started and her price goes up!!
We offer transportation with reasonable rates.
1st BLACK FRIDAY SPECIAL!!!!
3yo Double Registered Shetland/Minature Horse Mare
Dreamer is puppy dog gentle, she is always the first to meet you, even in a huge pasture. Dreamer has had lots of kid time with kids catching, grooming and handling her alone. She had lots of ground work done last fall. She stands to be trimmed, stands tied, and will be super easy to get started under saddle. She is approx 38-40 inches and she is built like a brick!
She has been around our mini mule and mini bull and it seems like nothing bothers her.
Located in Laurel, MT
Sale is through December 1st!
Want her started!? We can do that too! Just ask us about pricing! We will offer a training discount on any Black Friday sale pony bought!
Transportation available with a reasonable cost(We will be hauling to around Three Forks-Butte area soon!)
Who would be intrested in a Black Friday Sale on ponies!? I had a surgery this summer and 2 more planned for January so we will be a little behind on training for Spring. Who would be intrested in getting a started or unstarted on now for a Black Friday Deal!?
I'll post what is available, and you tell me what 2 you'd like to see be part of the deal!!
* Weanling Welsh Cross Stud Colt
* Yealring Welsh Cross Filly(Halter Broke, Stands Tied, Stands for to be trimmed, Has been Loaded, Lots of Kid Time, Loves to be Groomed)
* 3yo Welsh Cross Filly(Green Broke, about 20 rides, Loves attention, calm and laid back, can handle a smaller adult(160lb) to finish training, an experienced kiddo or teenager would be fine on her at this point)
*6yo Welsh Cross Mare(Green Broke, just needs more rides and experience, has a great handle on her, would be a stellar junior rodeo horse, catty and quick when asked for it, great butt in the ground stop, been out in the hills, trails, brush, never spooked at deer or birds, watchy on the ground at first but it disappears once she knows the person and knows she is safe, can handle a larger adult(235lb) could be finished by an experienced kiddo or teenager for a rodeo pony or just rode more to get her ready for a younger sibling)
* 3yo Double Registered Shetland Mare( Puppy Dog Gentle, lots of kiddo time on the ground, lots of ground work last fall with a 6yo, dominant in the herd and can handle her own in a pen of full size horses, she will also move our mini bull and was his pen buddy the last month.
* 12yo Grade Mare(Standard Size, not a pony) completely broke, kid ready, would make an awesome 4H horse, she has obvious previous reining training. Cross bridges, pull logs, open gates, NOTHING bothers her. She was untouched for several years before she came to us, she was lacking her ground manners some, but after getting back into the flow she has remembered those manners, she has a typical mare attitude and always has her ears back, but she has never acted out. Neck reins, spins, rides in a halter and a bit.)
* Yearling Draft Cross Filly(Halter Broke, stands tied, has been loaded, has had first trim, flashy with a great mane and tail and maybe even a little feathering started on those legs! Super gentle, our 5yo can lead her around, she is already almost 15 hands)
* Yearling Draft Cross Gelding(Halter Broke, Stands Tied, Has been Loaded, Gentle and Laid back with a huge stride, he is currently our studs buddy, gets along with everyone and he is gonna be big(already a bigger hip then our 7yo Stud!)
Everyone meet Max.....Max is a late born stud colt, his momma is the dark grey, we expect him to maybe get to her height, maybe less. We planned on letting him stay on longer then normal.....but Max has an issue....Max likes to chew everyones tails when he is bored, he doesn't eat the hair because I find it laying around 🙄🤔😭 so its apparently time for Max to no longer be a mama boy! Max eats hay and grain and will be started on milk pellets today when he is moved to his weaning pen. Max has had a halter on about 6 times, he isnt completely halter broke, but he is getting there. He has had lots of kid attention along with cats and dogs.
Max is avaliable for $450
This will go up once he is halter broke, stands tied, loads, etc.
Come check this cutie out!!!
Stay tuned, this beauty just might come for sale soon.
This little ball of cuteness was out waiting for us when we did morning chores!! Momma was a rescue mare and came to us untouched only a few months ago so she isnt quite ready to let us get close enough to see if it's a colt or filly. But either way its just adorable!!
Not even 2 years old and shes already starting to work those broncs ;)
Come Join us for some $5 Pony Rides!!!
SATURDAY August 11th 8am-4pm

Kids had an awesome time at the kids rodeo yesterday! Thanks to Robbie Cattle Company for all the hard work to put it on!
Keep and eye out for this gorgeous guy, he is a 12yo Registered Paint, and just might be headed to the Nile Gold Buckle Sale.....we have 10 more days to officially decide so we figured a photo shoot was in order.
"Pickle" 3yo Welsh Cross, just now getting started under saddle! A few more months and she should be ready to go!!!
She is about 48-52inches tall, I dont think she will get much taller but she should start filling out this next year.
It's amazing what 3 months of summer pasture will do for the ponies! This little girl has really flourished this summer!! She is puppy dog gentle, had her ground work done last fall and now at 3 she will be coming to the training pen. She is also registered! Stay tuned for some more photos and videos to come as the kids get her going!
Thank You to everyone who bought a spot in our raffle!! This was our first time doing something like this and it was actually super fun!!! I think we might defiently do something again in the future! Keep watching our page for more broke minis!!
Congrats to Shana Jones!!
Live Pony Drawing!!!!
Here we go! Commet the numbers you want, your email and phone number
**We will not be sending invoices for payment until all numbers have been claimed!**
Well the vote is in! This guy "Coors" is going up for raffle!!! You can own this guy for $45!!! There are only 40 spots so the odds are going to be pretty good! You can also buy as many spots as you want!!! Please read the full post and feel free to ask any questions!
We will do the drawing live, and it will be done by the numbers, so pick your lucky number, your favorite number or whatever method you use! So this is how it will work..........................
Comment with whatever numbers you would like, then include your email and phone number. I will update a list of all the numbers as they are taken.
Once all numbers have been claimed I will comment on the post and send out everyone's invoice, if an invoice is not paid within 48hrs you will loose your spot. We will then draw 24hrs following the payment time frame. For example; if all spots are claimed by Tuesday afternoon invoices will go out and payments will be required by Thursday afternoon and then we will draw live Friday afternoon. We will comment with updates along the way.
Thhis guy(Coors) is 6yo, about 34-36 inches
He is broke to ride, but is rusty on off lead riding. He is quicker paced so he needs just more basic riding off lead by a kid that understands how to direct him and isnt timid to make him listen. He listens and responds off lead, and he will stop or slow down when his rider tells him to but with a younger kid off lead that is too timid or able to direct him he will just do whatever he wants....he is ABSOLUTELY NOT MEAN in anyway. He can be hard to catch at first for new people in a bigger pen, however once he knows who you are and is used to you, you can catch him wherever. Right now he is grazing a large acre pasture and can be caught anytime, he has great strong hooves and even on fresh green grass all summer he has NEVER foundered.
He was previously sold, but have 6 months he just ended up being a little too much go for his rider so he came back on a trade for something that fit her better.(I'm sure they would also be happy to post about him and how he did with them) we have not done a whole lot of work or riding him since he has come back, we have had beginner kids on him saddled and bareback on lead, but my little older helpers are not around this summer to do more riding off lead. He is going to be a tad rusty but with a few days of messing around with him he will get right back into the routine of it. I would not say he is little little kid ready the first day, he just needs that smidgen of attention to get him back into it and some more riding off lead. But if you are just wanting lead line pony for now he would be fine and would quickly get back into his previous trained riding easily.
I will be posting some older videos of him being ridden and we will try to get one of the kids here to do a recent off lead riding video. 100% Sound
He is UTD on worming, vaccinations, and farrier care.

Throwing this out there to see what kind of interest there is on a pony raffle!
Who would be interested in a raffle on one of our ponies!?
What I would like to do is a raffle with 40 spots for $40, I would do it a little bit differently then some and wait until the 40 spots are spoken for and then ask everyone's payments. I find this way easier then the chance of having to refund several different people in the event 40 spots are not claimed. Of course people would have 24-48hrs to pay for their spot before losing it, once everyone has been notified the spots are filled and are given an invoice. Ultimately I'd like to give approximately 2 weeks for the slots to fill and then the 24-48 hrs(whichever people think is appropriate time frame)for payments and then do a live drawing.
If he is won by someone out of state they would be required to pay for his travel papers(under $100) and we would be willing to deliver to any winner for a reasonable delivery fee.
I will post his info in the comments and a video of him being ridden.
I'd love to know what everyone thinks of this and if anyone has any ideas or suggestions for it!
5yo Grade Pony Gelding. This guy is 44inches tall, with a nice thick butt and back. He is perfect on the ground with kiddos, and is a great one for them to learn how to care, groom, saddle their own pony. He stands to be trimmed, has great hooves and has never foundered even on tall fresh grass.This guy will go about any where you point him, we have not done a whole lot of off lead riding yet but we will keep working on it every day. He is perfectly safe off lead, just likes to keep with the adult so we are working on him listening to his rider and walking where his kiddo directs him without the adult in lead. Our older kid helpers are not around right now to help teach him how to ride off alone.
UTD on worming and vaccinations
Coggins and Health at Buyer Expense
Laurel, MT(Always happy to deliver him most anywhere with a reasonable delivery fee!)
