Move over family dog, there's a new domestic pet in the yard! Miniature horses are coming on strong as The Pet of the Future. Born with a healthy dose of unconditional love, these miniature bundles of joy are off-the-charts on the "cuteness" scale. With as little as a 6' x 10 Shelter from the elements and a little space to run around, these beauties thrive as the family pet in even the smallest of yards. 
There is competition for children and adults in events such as jumping, driving, obstacles, halter, and a "liberty" class, in which horses are turned loose in a ring to perform to music. Click on the Fun Photo page to see pictures of miniature horses and the many  ways a family can enjoy them and be sure to click on the link above to see a great MINIATURE HORSE VIDEO. Of course, T Bar T miniature horse breeders is the perfect place to get that perfect horse. The unique colors that we achieve in our foals is merely the wonderful and fabulous “icing on the cake!” THE MINIATURE HORSES  FOR SALE, PHOTOS, PICTURES, SALES AND PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE!

Unlike the stock market, miniature horses are depreciable over five years, giving the investor an immediate investment return in tax savings while the herd is growing.There are federal income tax deductions for farm expenses and improvements including feed, fencing, shelter, vet fees, advertising and insurance. Breeding stock held for more than one year is subject to capital gains, and miniature horses qualify for Section 179 of the I.R.C. which allows an a farmer to depreciate the first $100,000 of the investment.
Raising miniature horses may qualify your land for agricultural property tax exemption. In Texas, materials used for the miniature horse farm are exempt from state sales tax. Because the tax laws are complicated and change frequently, we recommend consulting with a tax professional or licensed CPA for further details on income tax advantages.

We take Minis to the Max! These are testimonials from some of  our happy miniature horse buyers!!!

I thought everything was BIG in Texas! God love them, because we sure do.  We played all day.  They had visitors in and out.  My sister-in law put their pictures up at the stables where her horse is.  Everybody wants to see them.  I'm glad it's a long weekend for us.  They will have a good home, with lots of attention.  Thank You again for the Little cuties.....I've just put them to bed for the night. Debbie in California

"I just wanted to let you that Jet & Red Baron are doing great. Baron is a mess. He wants to go everywhere that my son goes and he gets mad when we have to put him up in the evening. Jet has become the "BOSS". So she thinks she runs the place. We are really enjoying them." Robin Leerskov

 "Sherry & Bob: Thank you very much for all your effort and help in bringing the new member of our family "Splash" into our home in Puerto Rico. We really appreciate your kindness and the opportunity you have given us of owning a beautiful T bar T miniature horse." Angel & Yarina Alvez; San Juan, Puerto Rico

                "Sherry I must compliment you on your miniature horses. They all looked healthy and happy with life." Amy Feltman of Missoula, Montana.

"Everything you told us about the horses was true. It is nice dealing with an honest person. WE WISH MORE PEOPLE WERE HONEST IN SELLING THEIR HORSES INSTEAD OF JUST GETTING RID OF SOMETHING THEY DIDN'T WANT. WE CERTAINLY WOULD  DO BUSINESS WITH YOU AGAIN!"Kevin and Cherie Drey of Wisconsin.

"Thank you for our precious angel and a new lease on life."

"Thanks for sending us this dream catcher. We love him dearly."Norma Stewart of Peoria, Arizona.

"He is such a good horse. He goes walking with us, jogging with me, and takes the kids for little rides. The neighbors come out to say hello when they see him, people I never knew. I’m having a little trouble thinking of some way to say how perfect Starbuck is for us, how remarkable it is that we bought him over the Internet, and how grateful we are that having only seen a snapshot of him that he has such a gentle personality – without sounding corny."Carol Caldwell of California.

"He is the kind of horse that will have a home for eternity. We thank you 1,000,000,000 X's.

"Never in my 50+ years of horses have I received such a wonderful guy as he is. You do a wonderful job with your minis."Pat Smith, Arizona                       

"I wanted to write sooner but I have went mini crazy. I knew the night I got my baby boy Tex from you I was in over my head. I love him and he has been all I needed to open the door for some fun in the sun. No matter if I get 100 more, Tex will always be # 1.Thank You, Again."   Lacy Knowles

" Dear Bob, you and your wife are very very pleasant people.  I loved doing business with you guys, and I can't wait to get my miniature, he's beautiful. You breed the most beautiful minatures!! Thanks again!" Kristin, Florida

"It's been a great pleasure doing business with you and I'd definitely consider buying from you again. I now just need to find a larger piece of property so that I can expand my wonderful herd. Thanks so much" Janine, Washington
