If baby animals are "cute," then how does one describe Einstein the newborn pinto stallion? Super-incredi-adora-cute? Weighing in at just six pounds, the New Hampshire-born foal may be the world's smallest horse. Dr. Rachel Wagner, Einstein's co-owner, says the Guinness record for the smallest newborn horse is 9 pounds. Wagner notes Einstein shows no signs of dwarfism, unlike the current record holder. Photos of Einstein standing next to a young child and a bemused Saint Bernard really put the horse's 14-inch frame in perspective. All together now: "Awwww!"

There aren't enough words in the dictionary to describe the cuteness!

I want one

Not personal, but that's exactly the reason why these animals shouldn't be bred and born in the first place.

More domestic animals unable to survive on their own whom humans can own until they get tired of them; use; abuse; and discard. Like all those adorable unwanted chihuahuas now sitting in shelters (the lucky ones who aren't being used as bait for dogfighters).

He's beautiful.

I truly hope seeing this sort of thing doesn't inspire people to try breeding and keeping teeny tiny horses as pets, though. How incredibly sad that would be. Like those little piggies they're breeding now...

Irizary, I didn't say that to offend. I too am against breeding.

I just think he's absolutely adorable. That's all I was trying to say.

He is adorable...if you like dog-sized horses, but I'd like to understand (because frankly I haven't got a clue at the moment) why this horse is being bred?
