Katie understands the unique challenges of being a miniature horse or pony.

Dear Katie,  I am a 14 hand Welsh pony. How important is it to save for retirement?  My miniature horse pasturemate eats everything I try to save.  Signed, Frugal Eater

Dear Frugal, you should just eat all the food as fast as you can.  Try to eat faster than the miniature horse.  This will be hard to do, so practice every day.

Dear Katie, there are other horse advice columnists but they are all big horses and don’t understand the unique challenges of being a miniature horse.  I can get into the feed shed, but once I’m in, I can’t get out.  It’s too small to turn around, and if I back out I step on my buddy who is standing right behind me trying to get in.  Signed, Stuck in Paradise

Dear Stuck in Paradise, there is no reason to get out of a feed shed once you are in.  It is the best place to be.  Just keep eating until you have eaten a space large enough for yourself to turn around.  Then, bite your buddy who is blocking the door and he will move and you can jump out.  –Katie
