Tiniest Dwarf Horse Learns To Walk
 By Winniefield Park   •   13th Jan 2020   •   486 views   •   0 comments


Chanel the tiny horse is a dwarf. She had a hard start in life when her mother rejected her. Her poorly formed legs made it difficult to learn to walk and she had to be bottle fed every two hours. Her breeder reached out to the Peeps Foundation, a registered charity that rescues and rehomes Miniature Horses and tiny ponies of all types. Now, quite healthy and all grown up, Chanel doesn’t seem to realize she really a barn animal. And it doesn’t help that a dog is her BF. Cuteness overload warning.
