So now I know enough about Nigerian Dwarfs to have fallen in love with them and I've always loved Shetlands. (I know minis are mini-er but if you can't ride it, what's the use?) But lately I've been reading about miniature cattle and bantam chickens and then today on a whim I picked an animal at random and put mini in front of it and bam, miniature llamas! (Though they didn't have pictures to show how mini compared to regular llamas...) I was just wondering, what other mini farm (or exotic) animals are out there? Does anyone have any experience with them? Which ones are actually useful, healthy animals and which ones are just messing with nature? We only have 8 acres, some of which aren't even usable all year around (they flood), we have small children and we're new to farming so the idea of having small, easy to handle animals that still provide for the farm is one that sounds about right to us.
