For those living in the country these miniature horses would make perfect pets for you. They are small, and can be easily transported. They also require way less food that a regular horse does. Their docile nature and long lifespan also make them suitable as assistance animals for persons with disabilities.
Miniature horses must measure 34-38 in (86–97 cm) when measured from the mane, and were first developed in Europe in the 1600’s. They were popular amongst nobility as pets, but their small size also found them work in coalmines. Their use increased after the 1842 Mine and Collieries Act, when the UK forbade the use of children as mine workers.
