Mini miniature could be world's smallest horse


A miniature horse named Einstein is vying for the title of world's smallest horse.

Although currently unverified by the Guinness Book of Records, the one-week-old youngster stands at 14in (35.6cm) tall, weighs just 6lb (2.7kg) and is 7in shorter than the average miniature foal says Judy Smith, who bred the pint-sized pony in the United States.

His owners Charlie Cantrell and Dr Rachel Wagner say they plan to keep him at the New Hampshire farm where he was born.

Juliet Dunlop reports.
