Riverdance Miniatures in Victoria, Australia may have set a new record for the world’s smallest horse. This prematurely born foal stands only 15 inches high, or 3.3 “hands”, in horse-speak. The previous record for a fully grown horse was 4 hands and 1 inch.
Miniature horses are in fact, miniature horses, and not ponies. They have a higher rate of dwarfism than normal horses, because, well, they were bred for it (see earlier post on a tiny horse going bonkers).
Add one of these horses, one of the formerly featured miniature pigs, and maybe a tiny sheep, and you’d have yourself the most adorable, most genetically screwed up farm on the planet!
