I always stop by Quicksilver Ranch when up in Solvang to get my Mini Horse fix. I was a little dis~appointed this time as there weren't to many horses. There were a few babies & a couple of mares & maybe one stallion. I don't know if they are down sizing or if they had sold a lot of their... More

Great place for a quick break for the kids to enjoy seeing these sweet miniature horses. Do not be surprised if the kids beg you to buy one or two to take home. The ranch is free!

Seeing and learning about these miniature horses was a great experience. We were disappointed that the tours are no longer offered but we did have the opportunity to visit with a ranch caretaker who was walking a three month old colt. He explained to us some of the history of the ranch and how it is operated today.

We came across this beautiful ranch on our way to Monterey. Didn't know it was a miniature horse ranch! What a treat to see all the horses within arms reach. My kids were able to pet them.

This is really a beautiful spot and the miniature horses are so cute. But you can't actually pet them or anything, and they seem so used to people that they won't come over near you. It's a great experience for kids, maybe five minutes for grownups and then you're done.

These little critters are well-cared for. The Studs are in one area, mares in another, and mares with youngsters in their own field. We got to see one mare and her 4-day old baby inside in a comfy room.

We stopped here 3 time during a recent road vacation with our 4 year old son. He loved every minute of it. Peaceful tranquil setting. At the time we visited, they had 2 baby horses just 6 days old, what fun it was to watch them. Thank you to the owner for opening up your ranch and sharing this experience... More

This time 2 babies had just been born and when you pet a baby miniature horse, every stress you have in your body disappears instantly! I could spend hours petting those babies!
