Cute miniature horses!

This is a miniature horse farm. There is no admission fee, and they welcome visitors. The horses are super cute, and you can get really close to pet them. I know some people... read more

Decided to go check out the Quicksilver Ranch, even though the reviews weren't all great, but our family really enjoyed seeing the mini horses. We were able to pet quite a few of the mini horses and it was just neat to be there walking around seeing the mini horses. I think it's great that the owners let the public... More

We had a group of 18 people that I had told good things about the Miniature Horse farm. We were on a time frame, but wanted to visit and see the horses, and maybe buy t-shirts. We waited until 10:15. People saw from inside the fence saw us made made no move to open the gates. The pastures didn't look... More

The horses are cute to watch. It appears as though the ranch is left open of the public to drive in, sit and watch the horses roam around the lot. You can take pictures and walk around the property but thats about it. No one is around to talk with other than people who happen to be doing the same... More

This is the first time I have seen smaller horses. Sure, they are kind of cute, but nothing else. The horses have plenty of space to roam around but none were roaming around. They were either standing or sitting and doing nothing. Mildly interesting place to visit, but I would visit only if I have nothing else to do.

It was fun to look at the miniature horses but this is not really an "attraction" - there was no one around but us, but you can drive up and take a look. There is no charge but you can give a donation. the farm is clean and easy to access. It would have been more fun if we could... More

If you love animals such as mini horses, this is a must see! I have been here twice and enjoy viewing the horses. If they have new foals, it is even better to see them with their mothers. Adorable! If you are lucky, one mini may be out carting too. Great experience for kids as long as they are watched... More

This was really a neat place to walk around and stretch our legs while we were on a long car trip. The staff was very friendly and the horses were adorable. The kids loved this stop!

We rode the bikes here with the kids and had a delightful time with these little guys. They loved the apples we brought along and we almost became best friends. Just be careful with putting the apple pieces into their mouth and you will be OK.

We stopped by and was really puzzled where to go - no staff to direct you or anything. We saw horses in a distance, but never got chance to actually come close. Then there was an angry guy who yelled at us and a couple of other families for parking in a wrong spot - excuse me, it was an... More
