Little Kings Shakira (AMHR)

Our older horses have a home here for life. They've earned their green pastures and easy days.


The picture on the left is Thornwood's Ginger Snap, a 33.5” red roan mare, AMHR registered, born in 1990 at Huff’s Miniature Horse Farm, Oregon, IL. Ginger had been our baby-sitter to our weaned foals for several years. She sadly passed away in December 2016. We miss her sweet face and gentle ways.

Beauty and Kelly

Belle

Mares, Geldings, and Foals!

Kelly (chestnut pinto) and Beauty (black) are wonderfully versatile unregistered Miniature horse mares. Though not pictured here, together they pulled 2,400 pounds in a local pony pull - with a 16 year old girl (one of our Mini Whinnies 4-H Club members) handling the lines. These mares are so good - calmly walking up to the sled to get hooked, willingly pulling the load together, and calmly walking off when they're done.

Sally is a wonderful 'steady-eddy' driving horse and has also been shown by our Mini Whinnies 4-H Club members in driving classes as well as halter, showmanship, in-hand trail, and costume. At a local county fair a few years ago, she won the Open Halter Miniature Mares class and went on to win Grand Champion Open Halter Miniature Horse.

Ruger is buckskin gelding with wild dun factor, born July 2015 and expected to be about 36" at maturity. He is a half brother (maternal side) to our stallion Digger. Ruger's sire is a perlino and his dam a grulla, so he's a true buckskin dun. We're thrilled with Ruger's strong dun factor - including dorsal stripe, leg barring, cob-webbing, and he even has a belly stripe! - and we're excited to show him in 2017 with AMHR and especially at IBHA shows.

Diva gave us a beautiful red roan dun filly by Dusty Lane Vegas Bet A Buck (Vegas) on May 13, 2016. Wayward Winds Princess Peaches is registered AMHR. In these pictures, she is about 3 months old. Peaches is for sale, offered at $1,500 OBO. Click here for full pedigree.

Little Kings Bonita Noche (AMHR)

Belle is a lovely 13 year old 35" unregistered silver dapple mare and great little show horse - she is always in the ribbons, and usually in first place! Belle excels at halter and showmanship, loves jumping, and really struts her stuff when pulling a cart. In the middle picture, Belle is being shown in Peewee showmanship by a 3 year old boy who loves "his Belle". While sometimes temperamental, Belle knows

Retirement is Good...

The picture on the right is Hoofbeat Acres Got Spunk, a 31.5” dark brown mare, AMHA / AMHR registered, born in 1991 at Buck On Ranch, Clearwater, MN.  She is the dam of Buck On Ranch's multiple National Champion mare, Buck On's Dangerous Curves. Spunky was retired until in spring 2014, when a 5 year old Mini Whinnies Clover Bud member needed a quiet, easy going show horse for the year, so Spunky has took up her second career in 4-H and she loved it! She's back to retirement in 2015, but you never know...!

Dixie is a 36" dun mare, born in 2007 in Jefferson, GA. She is ASPC foundation certified. Dixie is a Gold Melody Boy great-granddaughter.

Midnight Treasure of LTDS (AMHR)

Alpha Farms Joyful Night (ASPC / AMHR)

They are also a great pair when pulling a wagon in a show, a parade or just on the roads around the farm. To top it off, both have been shown by our Mini Whinnies 4-H Club members in open shows and county fairs. In fact, both Beauty and Kelly have placed at the top (and several times in first place) at local county fairs in halter classes among some pretty nice looking competition! 

Treasure is a 34” black mare, born 2008 in Moscow Mills, MO. 


She is such a sweet mare, and she passes that sweet personality down to her babies.


Update! Treasure gave us a long-legged buckskin filly on May 23, 2017. She may be for sale - we'll need to see if she's a keeper! Pictures to come soon!

Alvadar's First Lieutenant (AMHA / AMHR / IBHA)

JJ's Outlaw of SLF (HOF) (AMHR / IBHA)

Zee Jay's Ruby Pearl (ASPC / AMHR)

We bought Outlaw specifically to show in IBHA shows here in Michigan, with our charter club, the Great Lakes Buckskin Association. At the GLBA's June 2015 show, Outlaw did wonderfully in all his classes and came home with High Point for IBHA minis! He is being shown at AMHR-sanctioned shows as well. He's such a little bundle of fun! At the 2015 Great Lakes Buckskin Association annual awards banquet, Outlaw was awarded High Point Pleasure Driving Mini for the year! And at the March 2015 IBHA Convention, Outlaw was awarded with a number of Honor Rolls and Reserve Honor Rolls. So proud of this little gelding!

"Darla" is a 37.5" silver bay mare, born in 2013.


She certainly has a 'Wow' factor - striking looks, stellar pedigree and tons of character!  She's also got long legs and moves like a dream. We call her the Taylor Swift of our herd!

"Moose" is a 34" buckskin gelding, born in April 2005, son of Little Kings Buckeroo Times Two and grandson of Boones Little Buckeroo.


It’s easy to see the Buckeroo stamp on our Moose and he represents all that is great about Buckeroo breeding. At a summer 2011 show, he walked away with Supreme Champion Halter honors. To top it off, Moose is also an awesome driving horse!

Scheer's Senna (AMHR)

Previously one of our stallions, we recently decided that 'a good stallion makes a great gelding'. Moose will be shown at AMHR and IBHA shows this season and on his days off, he'll enjoy being out with the herd.

Update! Bonnie gave us a gorgeous grulla colt on May 8, 2017, by Dusty Lane Vegas Bet a Buck (Vegas). Her colt will be registered AMHR and IBHA and will be for sale. Pictures coming soon. Bonnie will be bred back to Vegas Bet A Buck for a 2018 foal.
