Thin-bodied horses: Little Beauties - Telegraph
How long does it take for a very small animal not to be known as a bangs? and it' a miniature animal. It is not important to them that you cannot rid these tiny animals - neither grown-ups nor kids over eight years of age. No. Tikki, who learned to horseback riding on a miniature Shetland at the tender of three, considered them a life-long work.
With Toyhorse International, her mare farm in The Haven near Rudgwick, West Sussex, she keeps between 55 and 70 miniature horses, with about 15 colts per year. "They address humans because of their personality, because they are great figures - and because they are very beautiful to look at," says Tikki, who in 1994 formed the BMS to support the well-being, breed and show of miniature horses, and is chairman of the International Miniature Horse and Pony Society.
"Miniature horses are also extremely clever and you can do a great deal with them," she says. "As with any steed, what you put into it will give you back," says Tikki.
Scapulohumerary arthrosis in 20 Shetland horses, miniature horses and false bellies
P. D. Clegg, MA, VetMB,PhD, MRCVS1, S. J. Dyson, MA, VetMB,PhD, FracVS2, This document discusses the preclinical and prognostic characteristics of 20 cases of arthrosis of the shoulder joints in Shetland horses, miniature horses and Fallabella horses. X-rays revealed six of the cases of shoulder displasia, although it was unclear whether the diagnosis was first or second.
During aftercare, six of the horses had to be put down due to persistent serious paralysis; the other 14 horses stayed paralyzed, but were kept on grazing land by the sporadic use of nonsteroidal inhalers. There was no definite etiology of the disorder, but it is suggested that basic displasia or deficiency of additional assistance could predict the disorder to the shoulder joints of miniature breed horses.
