Houck's Miniature Horses is privileged to
have an owner-staff veterinarian on premise 24 x 7. This affords our
horses the best care year round.
Recently we attempted our first embryo-transfer from one of our tiny
26.5" miniature horse mares. Our attempt for an embryo-transfer
was a success for the first 4 months but during the end of the fourth
month our mare aborted to our disappointment.
Our miniature horses have an excellent show career with many American
Miniature Horse Association (AMHA) and the American Miniature Horse
Registry (AMHR) World Champions and Top 10 Champions in halter and
performance from our miniature horse yearlings, 2 year olds, and mature
miniature horse mares and stallions. Our miniature horse farm was
highlighted on RFD TV many times with world renowned, Clinton Anderson,
of Down Under Horsemanship. He and his film crew stayed with us for 3
days and filmed our horses. It was a learning time for us as Clinton
has so many excellent ideas on training.
We have experience in shipping miniature horses world wide. We have
shipped two groups of miniatures to Israel . We have the first and only
miniatures horses in Jerusalem, Israel. Our miniatures in Israel were
donated by a family in honor of their father. It was a wonderful
experience for us as one of the care-takers flew over and stayed with us
for both shipments. This way they would have some prior handling of the
miniatures. The handler also was on the flight to care for the
miniatures during the long flight to Israel. Our miniatures are
residing in the TISCH FAMILY ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS. If you are ever in
Jerusalem please go visit them.
Our experience in world-wide shipping also
expands to South Korea. We sent 6 miniatures horses this past Christmas,
2010 to South Korea. They flew out of Chicago and landed in
Alaska for 4 hours and then continued on to South Korea. They had 10
days in quarantine there and then arrived to their final destination on
the most southern point of South Korea. They will be around children and
adults for showmanship training and training in pulling a cart. One of
the 6 miniatures horse is in foal and expected to foal in April of 2011.
We wish them great success in their breeding program and their hands-on
SHIPPING MINIATURE HORSES INTERNATIONALLY
Houck’s Miniature Horse
Farm is approved as a quarantine facility for horses to be shipped
overseas. Our facility can isolate horses from other
animals in a very comfortable atmosphere. Having a
veterinarian on the property 24 hours a day makes our facility an
excellent choice above all other quarantine facilities.
Each country has
different import requirements concerning quarantine, tests for diseases,
and vaccinations that must be met prior to shipment.
Also, each country has a minimum time the horses must be in quarantine.
Knowing all of these regulations is a difficult task.
That is why we are an excellent choice for a quarantine facility.
The airlines have
specific requirements for the shipping containers for horses. We know
the airlines regulations and make the crates to fit the
horses personal needs for each shipment. In
some cases a groom will travel along with the horses in the cargo plane.
We arrange all of that for our clients.
We have experience
shipping animals around the world. There is no task
too large for us.
Come visit our facility
and see the beautiful and loving miniature horses we have for sale.
We have been breeding miniature horses for over 30 years.
