LEMASTERS, Pa. - For two weeks, Pauline Harmon got up every two hours during the night to make sure the baby wasn't being born.
When the time came, she helped to deliver it and then named it.
Now she'll feed it and care for it until she sells it.
Harmon, 67, of Harmony Hills farmstead on Harrytown Road, is the proud owner of a 20-inch American miniature horse named Copper Penny, her first "baby" of the spring. Three more are due this month.
"I like them because they're small. As you get older, I just think they're more manageable," Harmon said.
An equine enthusiast since childhood, Harmon decided 10 years ago to try her hand at raising and selling miniature horses, tiny replicas of their larger counterparts. The small horses are growing in popularity as pets and for showing.
