Tiny Horse: Cute Steed Suffers From Dwarfism

A tiny horse called Acer is believed to be Britain’s smallest steed at just 22 inches tall. Acer lives with his owner Maureen O’Sullivan at her Miniature Horse Farm in Corringham, Essex. The three-year-old sleeps in a small stable, plays in the field and even wanders around the family home. The little equine is best friends with a Labrador called Demon, who stands inches taller than the tiny horse. Acer was born with a rare condition called dwarfism, which means he didn’t grow properly in the womb.

Life Coach With Dwarfism Empowers Others: BORN DIFFERENT5m20s

Life Coach With Dwarfism Empowers Others: BORN DIFFERENT

A life coach is using the challenges she has faced due to her dwarfism to empower others. Born with a type of dwarfism called spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenital (SEDc), Julie Bond Genovese stands at 4ft 3in tall and says her condition has been a ‘mind-blowing and heart-wrenching all-you-can-hurl rollercoaster ride’ and she grew up believing she was ‘cursed.’ The counsellor from Dover, New Jersey, describes the way children with dwarfism are measured, talked about by doctors, and put through surgeries, which creates an inner sense of being a ‘broken person.’ But Julie says that the years of operations, stares, bullies and rejection has made the 53-year-old the strong woman, mother, wife and successful therapist that she is today.

Kitty with Feline Dwarfism Relaxes on the Couch

Occurred March 2013 / Mantova, Italy Info From Licensor: "My cat's name is Michele and she's three years old. I adopted her when she was just two weeks old and everything was fine. Suddenly, her health started getting worse and in the turn of a month, she was paralyzed. Therapy wasn't successful and no one seemed to understand the origin of her condition. A highly specialized vet visited to look at her and achieved the miracle. He diagnosed her with feline dwarfism, a rare genetic syndrome whose symptoms revealed in a very strong form when she had her first vaccination. The acute phase is now overcome, but some important consequences occurred such as her leg bones are disjointed with buttock. Her physical growth arrested when she was just a few months old, as the illness arose. Now, she's fine. She can walk and run in her awkward way! She can't jump, but this is not a problem because she's learned to call humans for help whenever she needs to go onto the couch or onto the bed." - Elisa Artioli

Tiny Teen: Primordial Dwarf Teenager Hopes To Be A Star

TINY teenager Hannah Kritzeck loves singing, ballet and dancing to hip-hop, despite being just 39in tall. The 19-year-old was born with primordial dwarfism, a rare condition that only affects about 100 people in the world, which causes short stature and health problems, including the threat of brain aneurysms and a shortened life-span. Hannah, who wears children's size four shoes, has to bravely face the reality of her condition, while also dealing with the normal teenage challenges. A new film follows Hannah as she prepares for graduation from high school, choosing a career, dreaming about boys and finding a date for her end of year prom. The bubbly teen, who weighs just over two stone, also spends her free time taking hip-hop and ballet classes and has her own voice coach. Hannah was adopted by Jackie and Larry Kritzeck at birth and grew up in Minnesota, USA, but she soon learned her normal teenage experiences were going to be different from those of her friends. Her condition comes with many medical needs including annual MRI scans to check for the possibility of brain aneurysms and because her teeth and mouth are so small she has dental implants. She also developed scoliosis and had two titanium rods placed in her back when she was young. But despite the limitations posed by her condition, Hannah has never let it get in the way of her passion for dancing. * Little and Looking for Love is on Wednesday February 11, 9pm, on TLC
