Miniature Horse

Going for a walk.

This little pony is ready to make friends with anyone her size. Sam Leith, 12, leads the way followed by Bliss and her tiny new daughter. Born at a stud farm in the Southern state of Victoria, Australia, the 15 in. miniature horse is yet to be named, but already formed a bond with Sam.
She is so gorgeous! Don't you think? Silver dun tovero in colour the little horse, currently only a little taller than a book is expected to grow about 24 inches.
How amazing to see a horse so tiny!

An old friend of mine used to joke that "John Wayne was 5'4" and rode a Shetland pony to like like he was 6'6" tall."
This changes everything! I'll never be able to say "Big as a Horse" or "I could eat a horse" or "You Big Horse's ass"

That is so adorable! I can not let my kids see it. I think it would be a more troublesome pet than the hamster.
