I've been to the Quicksilver Ranch a couple of times now and it's, overall, interesting to see the miniature horses. The kids, especially like it. It's seems to be a relatively "self-guided" place. In fact, I don't think I've seen anyone working there the last...More

I need to qualify and explain my title. I love animals and will go out of my way to see anything that is living, breathing, and/or swimming. I went to the Quicksliver ranch today and all I could think about was, "I wish all animals...More

It was worth a quick stop. It wasn't super exciting or amazing. But, the miniature horses were adorable and we were glad we stopped.
