The Super-Size Guide to Miniature Animals

Miniature farm animals have so much more to offer than their adorable appearance. Exhibit pint-size animals at fairs and 4-H events, raise mini sheep for wool or meat, milk little cows and goats, and train tiny horses, donkeys, and mules to pull wagons or work as therapy animals. Whatever your interest in minis, this reliable resource guides you through choosing, caring for, training, and breeding mini horses, donkeys, mules, pigs, cattle, sheep, goats, and llamas.

Why choose miniature animals over full-size?

- Minis thrive on less land.

- Feed and housing costs are significantly lower.

- Handling small animals (hoof trimming, shearing, milking) is easier and safer.

- Minis are profitable! There is a thriving market for the small animals you breed.
