The Littlest Horse

Once there was a horse so small
If it fell, there wouldn’t be far to fall

This horse here stands only 17 inches high
How precious! How dear! Let’s all now sigh.

This little pony, just as small as a dog
Could not scale even a fallen log

But please… please! Put away your mournful flute
There’s no need for pity—it’s so freakin’ cute

No, seriously. How cute is this? As a child, I always had a fascination with miniature horses. I’d heard of them and thought the concept was adorable. Then a couple of years ago, I actually got to see one at the San Diego zoo. And… I… loved… it. And I love this little guy too! And her name is Thumbelina. How darling!

Thumbelina is in no risk of becoming a circus freak—her owners love her as much as I do and would never sell her.

1, 2, 3, all together now!:
