The famous miniature horse, Einstein was born on a Friday in 2002. The farm of his birth was located in New Hampshire, in the northeastern US. It is known as Tiz A Miniature Farm in Barnstead (here is their Facebook). This farm was already breeding miniature animals; however, the presence of Einstein’s horse was unique even for them.
Height and weight
Einstein, when born, had a total weight of 6lbs, and his total height was only 14 inches. At first, it was thought that he had dwarf syndrome; however, his growth was completely normal, making it a natural trait. Einstein was also quite an active animal as compared to other miniature horses.
The breeding was done between a male horse named ‘Spend A Buck’ and a female horse named ‘Gay Charm.’ Fazenda Mondesir, the owner, was responsible for this breeding. Einstein was a healthy breed with lots of stamina and active workout.
Where is Einstein Now?
Einstein lives on the farm where he was born. He has been kept busy by his owners, who are on social media managing and recording his every act. Einstein has been quite famous these days and has been in Bellingham, WA, where he is busy with his daily routine and work - check out this video of his 11th birthday party!
Is Einstein the smallest horse in the world?
According to his owners at the farm, Einstein is so small that he can easily be the world’s smallest horse and earn a name for himself in the Guinness Book of World Records easily. This question still has a debate going on as there are also other candidates going on about being the smallest horse - other competitors are Thumbelina, Black Beauty and others.
