We have six full sized horses at Black Dawg. They all have different stories; retired racehorses, an ex Mexican tripping horse, abused, abandoned and those destined for slaughter. Each and every one have different personalities and unique needs. They are beloved beings that we feel honored to be stewards to.
Despite being diminutive in stature, these miniature horses and pony leave a big impact. Each one has a unique story to tell. They come from all types of situations, whether its from abuse, neglect or being elderly; we dare you to not fall in love with each 'mini' horse and pony.
We find that during our tours, that most visitors have yet to meet a donkey in person. Once they do, it's never the same. Donkeys, simply put, are absolutely amazing little powerhouses that love the be adored and pampered. Donkeys are often overlooked, misunderstood and underappreciated. Ours come from various situations and have their own stories to tell and we are excited for you to meet them.
