Einstein, Possibly World’s Tiniest Horse in New Hampshire… Weighed 6 Pounds at Birth, Give It an “8” on the “Ahhhh” Meter (video)

6-pound foal in New Hampshire may set world record as tiniest horse - click image to enlarge

This will likely rate an even higher rating on the “Ahhhh” Meter than Mabel the chicken in the UK, who had adopted a litter of puppies a few months back.

For mother hen Mabel and her four-legged “chicks,” I gave the charming photo and story a “6.”

For this adorable, healthy, tiny New Hampshire foal named Einstein, born just last Friday, he gets an “8” on the “Ahhhh” Meter.

From Washington Post, 6-pound foal born in NH may be world’s tiniest:

BARNSTEAD, N.H. — A diminutive horse born in New Hampshire could lay claim to the world record for lightweight foal. The pinto stallion named Einstein weighed just 6 pounds and measured 14 inches tall when he was born Friday in Barnstead, N.H. Those proportions fit a human baby just about right but are downright tiny for horse, even a miniature breed like Einstein.

Dr. Rachel Wagner, Einstein’s co-owner, says the Guinness Book of Records lists the smallest newborn horse as weighing in at 9 pounds.

Breeders say that unlike the current record holder, Thumbelina, Einstein shows no signs of dwarfism. He’s just a tiny horse.
