LITTLE EINSTEIN: 20 INCHES OF HORSE HEAVEN

We’ve harbored a crush on little Einstein, the tiny horse born on a farm in New Hampshire, since he was born a year ago. He’s 20 inches tall and destined to be the tiniest horse alive. Due to the media interest in Einstein, his owners are coming out with a book about him. As adorable as he is, we have powerful reservations about breeding animals to be dwarfs or miniatures. There are many health problems related to miniaturizing – both internal and external – and the tiny creatures might have painfully short lives.

    I have the same reservations about screwing with animals in this way. Unless it’s to help them, like extending the species such as in captive breeding programs for endangered animals.
    The tiny horse is, or course, darling and precious and I hope he and others of his kind are NOT suffering due to this. If they are, the breeders need to take a long hard at what they are doing.

    I used to live on several acres and considered a little farm of minatures — pigs, goats, alpacas. Just a couple of each. What harm? This little Einstein is darling.

    Poor little guy. Miniaturizing is just wrong.

    What does this have to do with gossip?

    Janet THANK YOU for alerting everyone to the sad plight of dwarfism in horses. At first I believed the owners of this miniature, that he was not a dwarf. I was ready to ream you out for even bringing up the subject. Then I googled for some facts and they are heartbreaking.

    Even if Little Einstein is not a dwarf – he traces to dwarf minis on the dam side and possibly the sire line. This alone is enough to keep him from passing on his bad genes.

    Unless and until a genetic test is developed for dwarfism in horses, these animals should never be bred from.

    I agree with Jane and notice that the tiny horse’s head is disproportionate to the rest of his body. That IS a sign of dwarfism. Dwarf animals, let alone people, have some very painful disfigurements and to purposely breed these animals, which have no point in existing, and most likely will suffer is really obscene.
