A New World Record - Smallest horse

Worlds Smallest HorseOn April 23 2010, on a miniature horse farm in New Hampshire, an even smaller than normal colt was born. Unsure if he was alive at first, his owner Judy rubbed him with a towel, at which point, he began to move. At birth, he weighed 6 pounds and was 14 inches tall. The pinto colored foal was dubbed Einstein.

The small horse was particularly striking due to the fact that the horse that currently holds the world record for smallest horse, Thumbelina, was 9 pounds at birth. Einstein is also two inches shorter than Thumbelina was at birth. Einstein's owners say that in 6 months, they will know for sure if they have successfully bred the world's new "World's smallest horse".

A particularly striking aspect of Einstein is his build. Most horses that are born at such an extreme size have large, bulky bodies and very small legs as they are known as "dwarves". Due to his normal build, he is still just a mini, not a "dwarf". It is unknown as to whether or not this will affect his final size, however the odds that he will be smaller than Thumbelina are good.

He is a dwarf though . . the shape and size of his head compared to his body & his eyes clearly show it, and there is signs of it in his back legs. I can't believe they are thinking to breed him when old enough.
