Horse - world record set by Einstein Horse
BARNSTEAD, New Hampshire, USA -- Einstein Horse,
a pinto stallion horse (owned by Dr Rachel Wagner and Charles
Cantrell of Bellingham) weighed just 6 pounds (2.7kg) and
measured 14 inches (35.5cm) tall - setting the new world record
for the Smallest
"We've been at this for 20 years and I've never
seen one this small ó never," Judy Smith, owner of Tiz A Miniature
Horse Farm in Barnstead, N.H., told the Boston Herald. The
average miniature horse foal stands 21 inches tall at birth
and weighs 18 pounds.
Einsteinís co-owners, Rachel Wagner and Charles
Cantrell of Bellingham, Washington, hale the horse as a miracle
and say that the miniature horse was also not premature and
was actually born three days later then his due date.
Rachel Wagner, the co-owner of the World's
Smallest Horse said ďMost of the ones that are really
tiny are what we call dwarves and have some sort of dysmorphic
features. This little guy is like all horses heís almost all
leg, he is very perfect looking little boy and not dwarfy
looking at all.Ē Hot-Affiliates Ads Advertise on this page.
Smallest Horse which was named Einstein by itís owners
was born at Barnstead, New Hampshire, North East of the United
States on the Tiz A Miniature horse farm and was thought to
have been dead when it was first born.
The previous Guinness world record holder for
Horse was Thumbelina, a horse classed as a dwarf horse
weighed 8.5lb (3.8 kg), is currently 17.5-inch (44.5cm) and
entered the Guinness Book of Records in 2006.
What makes Einstein different then the previous
Guinness World Record holder for the smallest
horse in the world is that he is not a dwarf. He is as
healthy as the other horses at the ranch itís owners say except
that Einstein is like the miniature version.
Einstein, the Smallest
Horse in The World makes a great companion for little
children, and you can see in various film clips of the tiny
equine little children playing with them.
The public might get a peek at Einstein during
the farm's open horse, er, house on May 8.
