"Born ten days ago at a stud farm in the Southern State of Australia, this 15 inch miniature horse is yet to be named, but has already bonded with 12 year old Sam.
Silver dun tovero in color, she was given a clean bill of health and should reach 24 inches when grown.
The birth has generated such an excirement in the community that local people are entering a competition to give the horse a name. Owner Lee Scown said she wanted a name that reflected the tiny unique nature of the horse.
"It's the smallest horse I've ever had and she's so gorgeous," Ms. Scown said.
The horse is the smallest born at River Dance and it's arrival surprised even the breeder. "We were told the mare wasn't due for another four weeks but on Sunday morning, I walked outside and called her, and out ran the little foal behind her."
My sister sent this adorable email and I just had to share it! She is so cute..what name(s) do you think would suit Bliss' little foal?
(my grand-daughter is good at coming up with names)
