Our Dogs

Affectionately called Turbolina, this little mare is so sweet and tolerant of everybody! She lets little kids handle her and her baby, and anyone can drive her anywhere.


My silly youngest daughter hooked her up to a wheelbarrow this week. She won't be doing this anymore, but I caught it on video. Click here to see her pulling a wheelbarrow. She even pulls her on her scooter. The picture to the left was taken at the Memorial Day parade in Surprise in 2009.


Turbolina came to live with us in December of 2005. One morning, we got an email from a family in our church saying they had three Minis that they would like to give away. We emailed them back right away and said that we would take one of them and we knew another family who wanted the other two. Well, as you have probably guessed, Turbolina was that one.

These shots are  at McDonald's drive thru in Wickenburg, AZ!!!

 We fell in love with Turbo, and she is what started our mini rampage! We love all our minis. My youngest daughter, who was only 8 years old at the time, started breaking her to cart. The pictures above are from her first drive. Note, how the cart shafts are pointed downwards....that is a no, no, but we have learned a bit more since back then. Jess is now approaching 13 years old.


Turbolina's beautiful color is called a "Silver Bay." When I first saw her, I thought she was a chestnut or a sorrel, with a flaxen mane and tail. But look closer...she has dark legs and dark tips on her ears. (If you scroll up to the top picture on this page, you will see these distinctions more clearly.) The light mane and tail come from the silver gene, along with her adorable light colored eyelashes. The big difference is if she was a chestnut, she would be a red base, but being a silver base, she is a black base. Turbo also has a pinto spot and this was bred into her 2009 baby. Click here to meet her.

This little girl is a wonderful driving horse. She has incredible action and is a very happy driver. She can out trot our stallion!!!  Click here to see her running with her 4 day old baby!

To see her 2006 baby click here, or to see a video of her 2006 baby, Buckeroo's Last Tango, click here. He was a Buckskin colt. By breeding Turbo (Silver Bay) to a Buckskin stallion, you have a good chance of producing a Buckskin miniature

The horse to the right is Turbolina's half brother who placed very well at World's as a youth horse. There are many past videos of Turbo on our website. Here is just a sampling.

Ayers Mini Red Man, 28.5"


This foundation stallion is also the Grandpa of our mare that we call "Magic" and  in "Morning."

He was the 51st horse registered with the AMHA and sired 22 foals. He appears in the pedigree of a great many champions. He was registered with AMHR as Freemans Red Man. He is said to be the son of Bramamans Peppermint and out of a mare named Limpy. He is also said to be a full brother to Ramundo and Stout's Mister Pride. You will see Ramundo in this mare's top side.

Ayers Mini Man has sired some of the best conformationally correct. When the International Miniature Horse Registry transferred over to the AMHA, he was part of their merger. He has only 22 foals registered to him, the last being in 1984.

This stallion has sired 61 foals with: two becoming National Champions and Reserve National Champion. Many of his grandget have been Champions too. One of his sons NFCS Butterscotch Boy was a National and Reserve National Champion driving horse in 1990 & 1991. He also sired one Reserve National Champion Senior mare 28" and under with her name being Davis I Love Lucy. Like his father he was originally in  the International Miniature Horse Registry and was transferred over to the AMHA after their merger.

His blood runs through another one of our mares, "Morning".
