    Though I do feel bad for her, in one of her videos they have her in a little pen and people keep reaching in and touching her and she is trying to bite and kick but she can't get her little legs up high enough... poor little girl, must be hard always being poked at and petted, even if she is spoiled as heck.

    This is mean, but her build reminds me of a wild boar or hog. Lol
    I bet she is very spoiled, but I hope they don't try to pass on the tininess and breed her.

    Severe dwarfism. It makes me sick to my stomach. This stuff REALLY ticks me off. It promotes the idea that dwarf miniatures are cute, when they're just a riddled mess of painful problems and ailments. The vast majority die far before reaching adulthood. Any miniature horse breeder worth a lick would be downright ASHAMED to produce something like that.

    Yeah, great quality of life. That's why she's constantly trying to kick the ever loving daylights out of every child grabbing at her. It never ceases to amaze me how things like starvation and neglect are abuse, and yet this is seen as perfectly acceptable - a simple "mistake" like Lethal White Overos.

    No baby is a mistake and it can all be prevented. Irresponsibility causing severe pain is the exact definition of abuse in my opinion.

    I don't understand what you mean by this in relation to the rest of your post. Please elaborate.

    I've seen that picture around for a long time; I don't think it's fake. It's cute!

    I think what Miko means is that in the horse world, you can't pass of a baby as a "mistake" - breeding like that is flat out ignorance.

    I don't think she meant in the sense that it often is used with human children (i.e. "no baby is a mistake because every life is precious") - I believe she's means that when you breed a horse with deformities like that, you are at fault. It cannot be passed off as an "accident" because education and proper precautions could have prevented it.

    Correct me if that's not what you meant, Miko.

    I do agree that it is cute in that particular picture, but I also agree that horses with dwarfism do suffer from lots of problems, and do die young. Some don't even make it past a couple of days. If you think about it though, as sad as it is, miniature horses came about by people breeding the smallest horses to the smallest horses in hopes of getting a small horse, and so on and so forth through the generations, and in doing so, have created problems such as dwarfism. Other horse breeds, as well as dog breeds also have issues that have been created by trying to breed to such a specific want/need, so even if you say breed two "perfectly normal" minature horses together in the hopes of getting a "normal" minature, you can potentially end up getting a dwarf miniature, so it is not always intentional.
