miniature tales By Sophie Schafter LM Idols Cuervo Straight (Lucky) “ the best horse ever“ according to Sophie FARM STAY H orses are characters. Although I knew that, I had never thought that Miniature horses have even stronger personalities than their big friends! But first things first. Hi! My name is Sophie, I’m 19 years old and live in Lörrach, Germany. After my graduation from high school last year, I wanted to spend some time in one of my favorite countries, America. I’ve been riding horses and enjoying them for 9 years, so I thought a combination of staying in the US and working with horses would be perfect. So I joined a program called “Farm Stay“. In this program the participant lives in a family that owns a farm and helps out whenever help is needed. Luckily my host family turned out to be the Rudolph family. Karen Rudolph owns Frost Hill Farm, an American Miniature horse farm in Hampstead, NH. Karen is a Miniature horse enthusiast and loves to show her horses at AMHA shows.
