Growing Fur Coats is Important

Today I would like you to meet Sassy. Sassy is a Miniature Horse and she lives in Northern Alberta, Canada. That is very far away from Texas! You can see how miniature Sassy is by how tall the grass is around her!

Sassy lives at this farm with her other miniature horse friends and a Llama.

How cool is this? These horses are just the right size for me! Can you just picture me riding on this little brown horse in a little saddle?

In the summer they eat fresh grass as well as hay, but in the winter, they eat mainly hay. For treats, they like to eat carrots, apples and specially baked horse cookies!

And guess what else they do in the winter? They grow fur coats! They have to because it can get down to -40 degrees F! I wonder if I would grow a fur-ier coat too if I was that cold?

**Special credits given to Jasmine the Eskie and Cuddles the Cat for providing the footage for this report. They don't have a blog yet, but are friends of my friend, Hana, and they wanted to be my friend too!
And they wanted to report this story about the importance of growing a fur coat, since wintertime is getting closer!

Thanks Jasmine and Cuddles!

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

I have got some photos of miniature horses. How come I haven't posted them today? :O)

If you mum gets you one of those horses then we can go riding together. That is the purrfect size for you.
I want one but the bigger horses would probably pick on the lil horse.

Hana said...

That is super neat the mini horses grow fur in the winter. I wonder if all mini horses grow fur like that? They look very different with their fur coats! Sassy looks very sweet. Yes, I think we could become friends with the mini horses.

Did I hear you say they eat specially baked horse cookies? I wonder what they are made out of and if eskies can eat them too.

Jasmine and Cuddles, thank you for your special report from Alberta! When are you two starting a blog?

Jasmine the Doggie said...


Thanks so much for letting us help with your investigative report on mini horses, you are such a good little reporter and so cute and fluffy too!!!!

Deetz....The little horses also live with two BIG Horses and they all get along really well!

Hana...My mom says that she would love to make a Blog for us, but she doesn't think that she would have the time to maintain it because she spends so much of her free time on the Eskie Board.

Hmmmmpf....That little Eskie Jasmine is cutting in on my Blog time...signed Cuddles the Cat.

We love, love, love miniature horses here. We know some who will only travel if their pet goats are with them--I guess that's kind of like living with a llama, eh?

PS- can't wait to see you on a saddle, JB: you'll look so dashing!
