VIDEO - Einstein Smallest Horse In The Worldimage – youtube (see below)

The average weight of a newborn horse typically ranges from 50 to 60 lbs and the size of a newborn horse is approximately the same as an adult Labrador retriever dog.

Well, there is always an exception in every rule, right?

Meet Einstein, the world’s smallest horse (born without any defect)! When he was born, he weighed 6 pounds and stood 14 inches tall (just half the size of an adult Labrador retriever). That’s smaller than some newborn babies! He was born on April 22, 2010 at Barnstead New Hampshire. Einstein is a miniature horse and his parents are both miniature horses too. Miniature horses, though small, measure up to the saying “small but terrible” and they often have a longer life span: According to, miniature horses are generally “quite hardy”, for they often live longer on average than some full-sized horse breeds. The average life span of miniature horses ranges from 25 to 35 years.

Unlike other miniature horses who made it to the world records, Einstein is not affected by dwarfism. He challenged Thumbelina, the famous miniature horse who has possessed the Guinness world record as the smallest horse since 2006; standing 17 inches and now weighing 60 pounds in her fully mature state. However Thumbelina is affected by dwarfism and has short legs. Einstein, on the other hand, does not show signs of dwarfism. Experts said that he is literally just a tiny horse. And so adorable! Einstein is now three years old and he stands just 20 inches tall. He will not be measured by veterinarians and Guinness officials until 2015. Though there is a possibility that Einstein may grow taller than Thumbelina, but he will still likely earn a world record for being the smallest horse in the world who is not affected by dwarfism.

We found one of his videos from charliecantrell on YouTube. Watch it here:
