Tiny PonySmall Pony
Britain's smallest steed - Telegraph
Shetland pony is only 19.5 inch in size and weights about 100lbs. Sandra Ponder, 63, who operates a vet's practice near St. Albans, Herts, has 14 small horses. The group still outshines him. Your'largest' pony is about 34inch.
However, the little pony likes to gallop with the bigger ponies in the stables around the pasture. This is Lucy living in a custom -made barn so small that it looks more like a children's Wendy-Haus. It' s not known why the pony is so small - Mrs. Ponder herself was in shock when the pony was no bigger than her 19.5 inch.
"Lucy wasn't supposed to be this little. It was about 15 inch tall when I was three month old - this is a standard height for a Shetland filly. "Lucy, like all Shetlands, ceased to grow at the age of two and I was horrified that she was so small. "She' s not your ordinary Shetland pony - I've never seen anything like her before."
Mrs Power says that Lucy is in perfect proportions - apart from her hair and cock growing so quickly, says Sandra that the little girl has a remarkable similarity to Tina Turner if you don't cut her back. In contrast to Lucy, Däumelina's height is due to dwarf growth - her limbs are out of relation to her own bodies and so the little pony has to carry orthopedic adaptations to adjust them.
Chloe is suffering severe injuries during a canine assault
Devon's biggest equine conservation organization has called on the owner to keep the puppies under surveillance after one of their smallest ones has been biten. Mare and Foal Reserve says the alleged assault on 19-year-old Pony Chloe took place on Sunday evening or early Monday mornings, and left her desperate and upset.
Wounding and biting traces - related to a hound assault, according to the foundation - were found when the 19-year-old retired pony was admitted near Newton Abbot. There' been some serious lacerations, and obviously Chloe was very desperate. It is suspected that a hound either leapt over a wall or came under a door on a pedestrian path near the South Manor retiring farm in Lower Netherton.
Syra Bowden, Sanctuary Executive Director, said it is always the dogs owners' duty to keep their domestic dogs away from endangered species such as lambs, dogs and the pony. We help the policemen to find the man, because if it was a dogs assault, we're concerned that he might hit again.
She underwent several low incisions on her lefthand side and several minor injuries on her right side, as well as severe hematomas. Fortunately, the forecast is good for the little pony and she should recover completely, but will have pains and bruises forweek. We are a charitable organization and all our horses come to us to ensure that they are safe and secure and, in the case of South Manor, to spend their last few nights in peace", Syra added.
