World's Smallest Horse at Work

150_thumbelinaThumbelina is the world’s smallest horse. She stands only 17.5 inches at the shoulder, and weighs only 57 pounds. She is a miniature horse, but she is also a dwarf, which makes her smaller than the smallest of her breed. Thumbelina has been mentioned at Neatorama before, but did you know she has a job visiting children who are hospitalized?
Ever since Thumbelina was a foal, the Goesslings noticed that she gravitated toward sick children.

"She has a way of seeking out kids who are suffering in some way," Goessling said.

Thumbelina is on a tour of children’s hospitals across the US, and has raised over $100,000 for children’s charities. Link -via Fark
