Fun Facts:

Miniature horses are found in many nations, particularly in Europe and the Americas. The designation of miniature horse is determined by the height of the animal, which, depending on the particular breed registry involved, is usually less than 34–38 inches as measured at the last hairs of the mane, which are found at the withers. Miniature horses were first developed in Europe in the 1600s, and by 1765, they were seen frequently as the pets of nobility. Life expectancy is 20-25 years and the gestation period is about 330 days.
