Koda is so small that he is often mistaken for a battery operated toy! He’s smaller than a Labrador retriever and only a little larger than a cat.
Koda is a miniature horse that also suffers from dwarfism. He stands just 59 cm (23 1/4″) tall and is the smallest horse in Australia.
Koda was born with a host of health problems. He needed surgery to correct his buckled legs and he still looks kind of funny — his lower jaw juts out, his eyes bulge and he has a wrinkled nose.
Thanks to vet Andy Lynch and veterinary nurse Karen Stephenson, Koda has received both the veterinary care and the encouragement to make it through his first year of life. While many didn’t think he’d make it, this plucky little pony has an oversized personality and is making friends everywhere.
