Miniature Horses are actually just that – a breed of horse!
Loretta Lynn (right) is a Miniature Horse, standing at just 38” tall.
Technically speaking, Miniature Horses are the smallest breed of horse in the world measuring no taller than 38” tall. A bonus fact; most horses are measured in a unit called “hands” which is the equivalent of four inches. Miniature Horses, however, are typically measured in inches.
Miniature Horses have several superpowers and live longer than the average horse.
Just ask Miki, who recently celebrated her 28th birthday!
Miniature Horses often live to be 25 to 35 years of age, as opposed to horses, who typically live to be between 20 and 30 years of age.
Another superpower of these tiny equines is their ability to be trained for therapy.
Due to their size and nature, many Minis are successfully trained as therapy horses. Have you ever seen a Mini on-duty before?
