Farm of the Month

T/C Mini
Family Farms

Owned by:  Viki J. Carson
Oklahoma City, OK
Phone:  (405)-315-0082


T/C Mini Family Farms was started in 1992. We are located in Oklahoma City with easy access to major highways, yet still have that 'out in the country' feel.

We have only 1-6 foals a year so ‘Riot’ & 'Ole' foals will be very limited. Put a little Riot or Ole' in your pasture! All of our horses are AMHA registered and most are AMHR also.

"What is man without beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would surely die from great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beast also happens to man. All things are connected."

         History of the SmallestHorse Group

There have always been breeders who have bred for the
smallest perfect horse, but they often felt alone in their endeavors
 due to the lack of recognition in the show ring.  Not until the
internet discussions of horses under 30” in height and the
non-compliance with AMHA rule CL-010 E, did those who were
breeding and promoting the 30” and under horse realize that
they were not alone in their dedication. 

Through a Yahoo internet group, breeders began discussing
 the needs and challenges for the 30” and under horse.  The
 efforts were led by Charlotte Lupton, Teresa Palmer, Margie Wood, Suzi Brannon, Kay Baxter, and Arlene Toback..  Through this Yahoo group, the Mission Statement was formed, the logo was chosen,
 by-laws written and the first officers elected.  In order to improve communication among the breeders, a message board was
 set up in March, 2003 and a paid member group was formed
 to promote the 30” and under horse.  The charter members
 are noted on the membership page.  Membership rates were
set at $25.00 per year per family. 

The first officers were Charlotte Lupton (President), Size Brannon (Vice President), Carol Albritton (secretary) and Margie Wood (treasurer).  From a few original members,  the SmallestHorse Group has continued to grow and has made it's presence known through the website, magazine advertising, sponsorship of AMHA World classes and having a SHG booth at the World show.  Plans are being made to sponsor and have a booth at the AMHR National Show.

All officers and directors of the SmallestHorse Group are
volunteers.  There is no paid for the love of the
30" and under miniature horse, many people are contributing
their time and energy to promote the perfect horse in miniature.
