Meet Einstein The World’s Smallest Horse

by | 26th, April 2010

MEET Einstein, the world’s smallest horse, standing in his naked hooves at just 14 inches high.

Pepper pot too hefty to pass across the dinner table? Sylvanian Family need transporting across the bedroom floor?

Then Einstein is your horse.

Einstein, a (half) pinto stallion, weighed 6lb when he was born lat week in the US, a county that is proud to support small horses and their causes.

Says breeder Judy Smith, of Tiz A Miniature Horse Farm, in Barnstead, New Hampshire:

I have been at this for 20 years plus but I have never seen one this tiny or even close to it.”

He’s a freak?

“At first he didn’t move very much. We started rubbing him with a towel and he started to move around. He was so small!”

Is she sure it’s a horse and not, say, a cat or a large spider? And why call him Einstein? Was Einstein a very small man who need big equations to make an impression on the fillies?
