Thousands queued at a farm in Barnstead, New Hampshire for a glimpse of him. But while human interest was high, he didn’t have many friends of his own breed.
Now his quest to find buddies and his life at home with owners Charlie Cantrell and Rachel Wagner in Gilmanton, New Hampshire, will be published in a new a book to celebrate his birthday.
‘This has been a remarkable year for us and for Einstein,’ said Mr Cantrell, 44, who bought Einstein for their small farm along with his wife Rachel.
‘Einstein is the smallest horse on record ever to survive and when the news got out to the media the level of interest was incredible.
‘The average weight of a newborn miniature horse is 18lb. The average height at birth is 21 inches.
His mother Finesse stands a relatively tall 32 inches and his dad Painted Feather measures 30 inches.
Best of friends: Einstein stands alongside Hannah, a St. Bernard he has become buddies with.
‘He can’t be officially recognised as the smallest stallion until he is four, but we are both relatively sure that he has stopped growing.
‘Playboy is owned by a young lady who lives next to our farm and Einstein sometimes meets him to have a head sniff and a simple hello,’ explained Charlie ‘You see the adorable thing about Einstein is that he doesn’t seem to be too aware of his height at all.
‘He approaches Playboy just like he was a fully grown stallion. He rears up and huffs and gallops around.
Einstein is living peacefully in his own pen on his owners land, his first birthday is something that GP Rachel and Charlie can’t wait to share.
‘He loves children and they of course love him,’ said Charlie.
‘They get wide eyed because they have never seen a horse this size before and they want to smother him.
‘However, he is so small, so hopefully the book will satisfy everyone’s desire to see Einstein and his cute and unusual life.’
