Jordan was born June 14, 2011. He is a bay with strong black points; ears, mane, tail and all four legs. His mane and tail are noticeably thick and long. Winter coat in pictures is gone now. He has great conformation, big expressive eyes and a beautiful head held high. He's absolutely gorgeous. His appearance is different than most minis. People say he looks like a mini quarterhorse.
His mom is a striking 31 in. bay mare with all black points; his dad a beautiful 31 in. palomino stallion. Both are registered as Class A minis with the American Miniature Horse Association. They provide him with genes for both dark colored and light colored foals.
He is very smart, curious about everything, learns quickly, and takes correction well.
His training is progressing: he can back up, move aside, and walk easily on a lead rope. He is able to stand for farrier and to tie-out for short periods.
He loves to be brushed and romp and play. But even though active and energetic, his nature is generally peaceful and he does not spook easily.
There seems to be no end to the possibilities for things Jordan could learn to do. He looks great when he runs, so he could be a good candidate for pulling a cart (one mini can pull a cart holding two adults). Given his great color and conformation, and his parents' bloodlines and gene pool, he could become an awesome herd sire. The vet says he's ready for breeding now. He could also be very successful in the showring - he has a maternal brother who sold for over $7,000 to go on the showring circuit.
In general, minis are therapeutic to be around. So, he might be a marvelous friend for children, a physically challenged older child, or a senior who would welcome some companionship and excitement in their daily routine.
He loves to eat! But don't worry. Minis eat very little compared to a regular horse -- about 2 cups 2x a day. They don't need much space either.
He is uptodate on vaccinations, deworming, hoof trimming, and coggins.
All in all, Jordan is a beautiful, healthy, happy, lovable,valuable little horse. In the end, he will give you much more than you give to him.
Why not come and meet him and see how he might fit into your family.
A good home and family are a must!!!
