Welcome to Way-Joy Farm Miniatures

This unique breed of horse is growing in popularity across Canada and the United States. Going back to the 1700's, their history can be traced back by several sources. From being pets of European royalty to working in coal mines pulling ore carts, miniature horses continue to fascinate enthusiasts and horse lovers everywhere. Way-Joy Farm is proud to be a part of the growing community of miniature horse breeders. We invite you to take a look at our miniature horse gallery (including our AMHA & AMHR registered horses) by clicking on the below gallery link.
Distinguishable by their hump and size, Miniature Zebu (Bos Indicus) are one of the oldest know breeds of cattle. Zebu where imported to the United States from Sri Lanka and Indonesia by Circuses and Zoos in the 1800's to be put on display. It is believed they were most likely then sold as "novelty" or pets as their small size made them undesirable stock for beef breeders. Miniature Zebu are rare and their numbers in the United States and Canada are difficult to determine. Most web sources put their numbers at around 1000 registered head in the United States and even fewer in Canada. We have a small heard of four animals. You can see some photos by clicking on the below gallery link. We also included a photo of the Miniature Zebu with some sheep to show their size in comparison.
Native to the Italian Islands of Sicily and Sardinia, miniature donkeys were imported to the United States starting in the 1920's. Their most common colour is grey-dun, but range in colour from Black (most rare) to white. Our most recent addition is a stunning pinto jack. Hopefully, with a little luck, we'll end up with some interesting coloured offspring. To view our Miniature Donkey gallery, please click on the below Miniature Donkey Gallery link.
