Located in central Texas on almost 200 acres of rolling hills at the eastern edge of the famed Texas Hill Country, Little America is a family owned and operated miniature horse farm. We are eighteen miles from the state capitol building in Austin and less than one hour north of the beautiful river walk and famed Alamo of San Antonio. We are conveniently located just three miles east of Interstate 35 and welcome visitors by appointment.
We purchased our current location in 1995 and it was “coming home” for Carol because her family was from San Marcos, some sixteen miles away. The place was originally a dairy farm and was being converted to a Quarter Horse ranch when we bought it. We adapted the existing facilities to house our growing herd of miniatures which boasts the nation’s largest herd of the smallest miniatures with over eighty head currently 30” and under. We have visitors from coast to coast as well as customers from Russia, France, Mexico, Belgium, Scotland, Canada, and Australia to name a few. When people are searching the finest and tiniest, they are usually directed to us from people worldwide.
Our many years of experience with miniatures has proven to be an asset to our customers. We tell them that our experience is theirs for the asking twenty-four hours a day and we carry through on that promise frequently, whether it is a horse that is colicky, having a foaling problem, or a question on feeding or training. Our customers become part of the Little America family.
People are amazed when they come for a visit and take a tour of our many pastures when Tony not only knows each of the horses by name, but can usually quote their background and pedigree verbatim. Lauren says that he is Wikipedia for miniatures!
If you are in the central Texas area, plan for a visit or better yet, plan a trip specifically to pick out some of our wonderful miniatures for yourself.
