Miniature Horses

Height & Weight

Depending on their size adult miniature horses can weigh anywhere from 150 to 350 pounds; the height of these horses is usually less than 34–38 inches (86–97 cm) as measured at the last hairs of the mane, which are found at the withers.

Sleep & Food

Just like people, horses need to maintain a balanced diet to be healthy and have energy. They eat grass and hay at meal times. Horses can get a lot of sleep while standing up, but they lie down when they require REM sleep.
