AMHA, AMHR Miniature Horse- 32"

By MTC Nite Watch, Out Of 4 GS Hapers Little Mishap


Scottie came to Byrd's End Farm in 2011. He has the most heartwarming stories of all of our horses. Scottie was the Bluegrass Miniature Horse Club raffle colt at the KY State fair in 2011, and was drawn by a woman without a trailer, a barn, or any horse knowledge. Sarah offered to buy Scottie for $200, and brought him home that night. A month later, on September 18th (Sarah's Birthday), he was discovered missing- his stall was locked, but no Scottie. He was found shortly afterwards cast in a ditch. He had coliced and wedged him way under the stall door. After a week at the vet, he underwent surgery to fix his compacted intestines, costing $3200. A good lesson for anyone looking to buy a horse. Now, Scottie is learning to become a halter and pleasure driving horse for the upcoming show season.

KPM Top Gun


"Top Gun"



Foaled April 16, 1997

AMHA Miniature Horse- 34"

By Iona Early Riser, Out of R KS MS Alexandria



Top Gun came to Byrd's End Farm at the same time as Patrick. Top Gun has champion bloodlines, and stellar movement. however, he has always had an irrational fear of bags, which makes taking him to shows difficult as well as dangerous. He is currently being trained extensively to overcome this fear, and become a very successful show horse. In 2001, Top Gun was overcome by laminitis, which caused his hooves to be deformed. Now, he is too tall to show at any AMHA sanctioned shows, so he is being hardshipped into the AMHR.
