The "Itty Bitty" Pony

Going For a Walk


Sam Leith - 12, leads the way, followed by Bliss and her tiny 15 in. new daughter... Silver dun tovero in colour, she was given a clean bill of health, and should reach 24 inches when full grown.

The birth has generated such excitement 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.


Seeing Eye to Eye


This little pony is ready to make friends with anyone her size.

"It's amazing to see a horse so tiny. She's about the size of a week-old lamb...."



The horse is the smallest born at Riverdance in the southern state of Victoria, Australia. Its arrival surprised even its breeder.

"We were told the mare wasn't due for another four weeks. On Sunday morning,
I walked outside and called her. The little foal ran out behind her!"



The horse, only a little taller than this book, is expected to grow to about 24 inches.
