This summer, the Marion and Osceola County 4-H FFA fairs will have an additional amount of cute, thanks to a new 4-H club that will make its debut.

Vicki and Brian Cushman, regulars at the Osceola County 4H-FFA Fair, had the desire to begin a project to take miniature horses to the fair for children who are not able to have a horse. Ten years ago, she began raising miniature horses, which are are calm, docile, playful, easy to maintain, relatively inexpensive and easily trained.

Although registration for this year's Mini Hoofbeats club is closed, more information about next year's registration can be given by calling Vicki Cushman at (231) 278-2213.
