Mini Horse Ranch

Nestled in the rolling hills of Solvang lies the Quicksilver Ranch, home of miniature horses. Not to be confused with ponies or dwarf breeds, these horses have been bred over 300 years to mini versions of the real deal. Slightly smaller than a Great Dane, these fellas make great pets.

At the ranch, the public is welcome to walk the grounds and visit with these adorable creatures. And if you can't withstand the cuteness, you can even take one home!
