A Miniature Horse

North San Luis Obispo County is Horse Country

The North County is wine country, but it's also horse country. There are commercial horse farms, and then there are residents who have horses along with donkeys, mules, sheep, and goats. This is a miniature horse who lives in Templeton, south of Vineyard Drive, off Santa Rita Road. It lives with larger horses next to a rural home.

A Miniature Horse is Not a Pony

When I first saw this horse I thought it might be a pony, but later I met the owner, who set me straight. You can see how small this miniature horse is when one of the other horses is near. This isn't a very clear shot since the horses were at the back of the lot and I had to use my zoom.

I took a couple of other shots of the miniature horse to give you yet a different perspective.

This photo was taken looking straight at the front of the horse.

This shot was taken as I looked over the top of the fence.

Does anyone have a caption you'd like to suggest for this one?

Don't miss my friend Rhonda's travel blog, Albom Adventures


  1. Fun seeing this miniature horse, Barbara.

    1. They are really fun to watch. They are very sociable. One of the related links showed people holding them or having them in their laps. I guess some are much smaller than this one.

  2. Caption: "Watch out! Is that a fly or a miniature drone?"

    Fun images. Amazing shot of the horse walking toward you. Not even her mane is blurred. And the light!

  3. Thanks for getting the ball rolling on suggestions. I'm sorry you had trouble posting. I do moderate all comments.

  4. He is so cute! There is a farm with a lot of them in the Santa Ynez Valley (in the road that connects Solvang to Los Olivos, I think it is called Alamo Pintado).

  5. Adorable and I bet, really affectionate
