Thursday, April 1

Born recently at a stud farm in the southern state of Victoria,
Australia , the 15 "
miniature horse is yet to be named, but has already formed a bond with Sam Leith, 12.

Silver in color, she was given a clean bill of health and should

reach 24” when grown.

The birth has generated such excitement in the community

that local people are entering a competition to give the horsea name.Owner Lee Scown said

she wanted a name that reflected

the tiny, unique nature of the horse. 'Its amazing to see a

horse so tiny. She’s about the size of a week-old lamb.

The horse is the smallest born at Riverdance and its arrival

surprised even its breeder.

'We were told the mare wasn't due for another four weeks

but on Sunday morning I walked outside and called her,

and out ran the little foal behind her.'

Oh, how sweet! A perfect little miniature pony!

Thanks for sharing and sorry for not popping by more - my loss!

The mother looks like a Shetland Pony. I wonder what the papa looks like. Perhaps he is a miniature horse. Still the colt is smallest I've ever seen.

I was wondering if this was an April Fools post at first! :D

I worry about it being so small. I hope it has all its bits and pieces.

Gee, I hope this isn't an April Fools Day story....What a dear dear teeny tiny little Horse....It's terrible that I am suspicious of this story--And it is because there is so much chicanary these days--what with PhotoShop, etc.....I hope and pray that this little Horse is 'the real deal'....!
