You' re going to see Einstein, the smallest horse in the whole wide universe. New Hampshire on Friday when he was borne, the young Einstein had a weight of only 2.7 kg and was only 35.5 cm high.

That little fellow is like all dressage stallions - he's almost just a leg," Wagner said, adding: "He's a very handsome little kid, not a dwarf who sees everything".

Both Gilbert and his team own Smokey Hollow Farm in Wisconsin - fifth-generation horse ranchers and rivals. When Gilbert said the whole thing looked at him, they knew Jake - now 17 years old - was one of the greatest ponies they'd ever seen.
"We were looking for a big filly when he was bred, he was about 240 lbs. but he had good pedigree - that's what we're looking for in the breed of draught-horse. "It was when he was about seven or eight years old that the whole familiy realised that he could be the greatest man in the canopy.
"We' ve been on horseback all our life, so we had a good plan for what it was, but we wanted to show it to the end before paying much heed. "When Jake was about nine years old, I got in touch with Guinness in 2010. "It was then that the Guinness World Records Jake sized at an exceptional 20 handed, 2. 75 inch (210. 2 cm or 82. 75 inches) and was formally called the highest live horse.

"He' s like a member of the whole household - he' not just an beast, he' part of ours. "There is no better temper for a horse than him. "Gilbert says that when they see him in the flesh, they' re in awe of him. "It' s really difficult to tell from a painting how big it is, so the folks who come here are really awesome - even other horse men who are in it.
"He' taken the state of Wisconsin, they know Jake and they like him a whole heap. Considering its height, it is only logical that Big Jake will eat twice as much as a normally tall horse. "Jake needs to keep his strength," says Gilbert. "Lots of folks try to strain their horse as much as possible, which is a horrible thing for their socks.
" Then there is Thumbelina, the smallest horse in the whole wide range - a miniature Sorberbrown filly. With the Guinness Records in 2002, she wrote record-breaking records after 44 years of experience. 5cm (17. 5 in) high. "To put it in relation, a miniature filly when she' s borne is typically 19 or 20 inch in size and Thumbelina has never reached that height," heds.
The Guinness World Records made a photo shoot with Thumbelina, bringing back the biggest horse of the year. "They had Thumbelina on a leash and they had'Radar' - the biggest horse - there and Thumbelina suddenly got up, biting his face and run away!
"She' s standing on the floor taking nothing from other ponies, but at the same tasting she was always so cute and quiet and gentle to the children. "The Goessling brothers early in life chose to turn Thumbelina into a therapeutic beast. "They were children who really fought - sometimes emotional - and they had that instant with Thumbelina.
"Thumbelina seems to have this capacity to know the situa-tion because these children will embrace and hold her and grate her ear and she will just sit there and take it and she will cuddle her. "Now 17, Thumbelina is living a peaceful live on the estate, sleeps in the doghouse - with a bunch of dogs to get into the shed and out of the shed.
"and she' s living in her own little Thumbelina kingdom made for her over the years."
