|October 2008 brought us a new
adventure. We adopted three Miniatures. A mother and son and
their companion donkey. The little man named Lucky was a Dwarf
and noticeably crippled and deformed. He was renamed Dobby, and
his mother Ladybug, and "uncle" Jingles came to live on the
farm. Little did we know of the adventures that we were about to
embark upon. The Mini world is totally different than the
regular horse world and having a Dwarf is a daily challenge.
Follow along with us and on Dobby's own page, to see how we
learned a whole new aspect of horses.
The little group was temporarily housed in
the main barn, however, as Jingles voiced his opinion on a
regular basis, it became obvious that the permanent residents of
the barn were not enthused with the new residents and noise
levels. The only solution was to build a new facility for the
trio. The "Little House" was created for three but then it
became obvious that only two would be in residence. Dobby was
having problems and needed constant monitoring.
