 Please join us for a tour and learn about Miniature Horses, pot-bellied pigs, chickens and goats. You will hear the history of how Edith and Ernie started Itty Bitty Mini Horse Encounter & Sanctuary.  You will also get a one-on-one with the mini’s (time permitting).

We occasionally rescue miniatures horses/donkeys from feedlots and surrender situations. After the minis have spent time with us and they are healthy mentally and psychically we try to find them a forever home or they will remain forever residents.

We are always welcoming and VERY appreciative of donations to help support our minis that need help!

We currently have 8 miniature horses & 3 miniature

donkeys. We are private, not a 501c.

Catch yourself some Gold Fever and be a Forty-Niner!

There’s gold in them thar hills!

 Gold was discovered in California in 1848. Imagine travelling a thousand miles just for a chance to find your fortune.  After you arrive, you will be greeted by local miners bearing the news of the mother lode.  Head straight on up the long tom sluice, the mine and the gold fields!  Get supplies on credit and start digging and panning!

 Throughout the day you’ll learn about 49er life, including the feuds between the farmers and the miners and how gold was found. You might even learn the hard way about supply and demand.  How could someone be charged $100 for a glass of water, and $1,500 for rent?  Find out how millionaires made their money as you watch the price of gold!  Buy low, sell high!  Make sure you visit the Assayer to sell your gold for as much as you can!

 You’ll get a break for lunch at high noon, during which you are served a light miner’s ration. If that’s not enough to fill your belly, make sure to stop at the General Store and bakery for food items like our famous 5 pound pie. (Or make sure to bring your own lunch).

 At the end of the day, count up your currency and

participate in an auction where fortune-seekers bid on

prizes for their hard work.

 

Other activities may include

  • Assayers Office
  • Mine Shaft
  • Gold Fields
  • Cabin
  • Sluice Boxes
  • Gold Panning.
