Is Gulliver the World’s smallest Horse?

Gulliver

Gulliver, born last year in Russia, looks like he will take over the crown for the smallest male miniature horse. Most of the breed measures a maximum of 34 inches; Gulliver is only 19″ tall now and was only the size of a cat when he was born. He is still smaller than Enstein, who stands at 20″.

The smallest female horse record is still held by Thumbelina, a miniature sorrel brown mare, who measures 17.5.

Ironically, Gulliver is named after Jonathan Swift’s Lemuel Gulliver, who discovers he’s a giant when he is shipwrecked on the island of Lilliput.
