She Holds The Record For The Smallest Horse In The World And She Is Beyond Adorable

On May 1, 2001, Paul and Kay Goessling welcomed little Thumbelina into the world. Right away they knew there was something special about this little girl. The Goesslings raise miniature horses at Goose Creek Farms in their St. Louis suburb, but they had a suspicion that Thumbelina might be even more miniature that usual.

Guinness World Records proclaimed her as the smallest horse in the world because she is just 17 inches tall and weighing 57 pounds.
