This colt was born May 24, 2012 out of my favorite miniature horse mare, April, who is also the mom to Lil Lex (sired by Lex). Tiny was sired by The Executive, which makes him a grandson of the famous Producer stallion! I think he will not mature over 9 hands tall! Very much a rare cob pony!
UPDATE: TINY IS NOW IN MAINE WITH IVY>>>NOVEMBER 2013
He is a very fun option for anyone wanting to dip their feet in the water and acquire one of the earliest and smallest miniature gypsy horses! However, I am hoping someone will see his extremely high value as a stallion prospect to breed to their smaller gypsy mares and will join with me in the effort to work alongside the breeders in UK/Ireland in developing a truly miniature gypsy horse for the future, fully feathered and reflecting all the outstanding qualities of the beautiful wagon horses developed by the gypsy breeders! I am pricing him at $3000 as a yearling.
I added a pic from 6-14-12 (in the group of photos first attached to this page) where we put a stick to him to measure him, which we neglected to do as a newborn; I would imagine he was at least an inch taller than he was at birth. On 6-14-12 he was 27″ tall. I will have to remember to measure him on August 24th and compare his height to the chart here and see if he is still on track….
Update 7-7-12: a couple new photos
Update 7-31-12 new photos just casual, two months old
Update three months old: 30 inches tall!
Update photo 2-15-2013 and about 32 inches tall! He has also developed a nice amount of feather this winter, is very wooley looking with an amount of hair around his feet about halfway well represented between his mom and dad! I am very pleased with this little miracle!
