In Kent, England, there's a special horse who has no idea he's just 33.5 inches high. He's small, he's cheeky, and he's got personality for days. Who are we talking about? Oh, that's just Microdave—also known on the streets and in the show ring as MD.
At birth, Microdave made headlines for his super tiny stature. He was quickly dubbed as "Britain's Smallest Horse" and wore the crown with great pride. I reached out to his owner, Jen Baldwin Murphy, hoping to do a follow-up on Microdave and see what he's been up to. Thankfully, she was eager to share with all of our iHeartHorse readers about this tiny horse who has stolen the hearts of many—especially hers!
Just look at this trot and that expression!? Be still, my heart...
Microdave is five years of age now, and Jen says that he is learning how to drive... when he's not busy being spoiled rotten. If you ask me, it's easy to see just how loved he is by looking at his photos.
Keep reading to find out more about Microdave from his proud owner, who was kind enough to answer my many questions about this tiny horse with boatloads of personality.
