Meet Microdave – who standing at just 18 inches tall could be Britain’s smallest horse. At 12 days old, the American miniature stallion stands a full two inches shorter than Einstein, who is recognized as the world’s smallest horse.

When the pocket-sized colt was born measuring a miniscule 12 inches – the same height as a 2litre bottle of coke – he was nine inches shorter than the average American miniature foal. Using his adorable size, Microdave runs rings around mum – Haysden Samber Tiddly – and owner Jen Baldwin-Murphy.

Jen, who owns Haysden Liveries near Tonbridge, Kent, said: “I still can’t believe how small he is. When I stand next to him his withers come way below my knee.” Jen jokes that when people come to visit the miniature horse, she has to check their pockets to make sure none of them stole Microdave.

Now that Microdave has grown to full 18 inches, Jen says he is becoming quite the handful. Not only is Microdave getting quite naughty.

There is another tiny horse out there in the world, beside Einstein and Microdave, only this one is a miniature of a miniature horse! Thumbelina is only 17.5 inches tall and and weighs just 60 pounds, as opposed to her mom, which is 34 inches tall and 250 pounds heavy. Either way, they are all so adorable!

    May I suggest that the next time you interview someone about their sweet tiny animals that you put yourself in such a position that their conversation is not blocked out by the wind hitting the microphone? I was unable to hear the questions and the answers! My loss.
