This Tiny Horse's Owner Refused To Put Him Down, But Wait Till You See How He Lives Today
Born at only 22 inches, Acer the Aquinas was far too small to even be referred to as a miniature horse. In fact, miniature horses are usually around 34 to 38 inches, depending on the breed registry that is involved in designating this type of horse. So, then, what is Acer? Well, the little guy actually has a very rare type of horse dwarfism. Surprisingly, both his mother and his father had the gene for dwarfism, even though they were both full-sized horses. Horses that suffer from dwarfism might be awfully cute, but, unfortunately, they often have to deal with significant health issues. Therefore, breeding stock registries often will avoid accepting horses affected by dwarfism to their registration of miniature horses.
