Small But Mighty Equines


Minis and Friends South Plains was created by a group of friends who wanted to share their love for miniature horses and the healing work they do with people in the community. Our focus for visiting is primarily on weekends. We will bring our mini horse ambassadors to your centers, facilities, schools, hospitals and hospice - where ever the need is - we will come.

Our Gunner had to have surgery for his obstructed bowels and slight twist in the large intestine. The surgery cost between $3000-$5000, if anyone would like to donate to his vet bill - we need assistance to pay the vet and help get him back into the therapy world again.
