Let's be real, Cuteheads: This is the cutest horse you've ever seen. Ever. I imagine she could probably live in my house quite comfortable, and even snuggle in the bed.
Here's her story, from the email:
Toy horses are usually pink and plastic –- and aimed at young girls. But this little pony is 100 per cent natural – and ready to make friends with anyone her size.
Born ten days ago at a stud in the southern state of Victoria , Australia , the 15 inches miniature horse – which is yet to be named – has already formed a bond with Sam Leith, 12.
Going for a walk: Sam leads the way, followed by Bliss and her tiny new daughter.
Seeing eye to eye: The little horse has already formed a bond with youngster Sam Leith.
Owner Lee Scown said she wanted a name that reflected the tiny, unique nature of the horse.
'It’s the smallest horse I've ever had and she’s so gorgeous,' Ms. Scown said.
The miniature horse snuggles up to mummy as local people try to come up with a name for her.
The horse, currently only a little taller than this book, is expected to grow to about 24 inches. "It’s amazing to see a horse so tiny, and she’s about the size of a week-old lamb."
The horse is the smallest born at Riverdance and its arrival surprised even its breeder. "We got told the mare wasn't due for another four weeks but on Sunday morning I walked outside and called her, and out ran the little foal behind her."
Tight squeeze: The horse is so small it can fit underneath her mother.
More cute horsies, please.
