The Adorable Arrival of MicroBoo: The Newest Addition to the World’s Smallest Horse Family


Welcoming MicroBoo: The Newest Member of the Tiny Horse Family

In the realm of miniature horses, there are some remarkable contenders for the title of “World’s Smallest Horse.” From Thumbelina, a dwarf mini standing at 17.5 inches tall, to Einstein, a miniature horse without dwarfism measuring in at 20 inches, and the adorable MicroDave from Kent, England, a rare Overo stallion standing just 18 inches tall. These pint-sized equines have captured the hearts of many with their diminutive stature and charming personalities.

The Arrival of MicroBoo

Adding to this illustrious lineup is MicroBoo, the newest addition to the family of miniature horses. Born on June 6, he came as a delightful surprise just weeks after pregnancy tests on her mother came up negative. Standing at a mere 15 inches tall, MicroBoo entered the world only one inch taller than her celebrity brother, MicroDave, who measured 14 inches at birth. Both MicroBoo and MicroDave share the same father but were born to different mothers.

Owner Jen Baldwin-Murphy of Haysden Liveries, near Tonbridge, Kent, bred both Boo and MicroDave and was overjoyed to welcome the unexpected new addition to her stable. Despite initial doubts about the pregnancy of Boo’s mother, Rock Star, the arrival of the tiny filly brought immense happiness and excitement to all involved.

A Surprise Blessing

“We had been hoping her mum, Rock Star, was pregnant, but the blood tests came back negative. That’s the third year we tried with that mare, so I just thought she was infertile,” Baldwin-Murphy shared with Daily Mail. “Then a few weeks ago, I thought she had a bit of a belly, and it turned out she was pregnant. She got to ten months and just started showing.”

The unexpected arrival of MicroBoo highlights the unpredictability and joy of breeding miniature horses. Despite the challenges and uncertainties, the bond between MicroBoo and her caretakers is evident, reflecting the special connection that exists between humans and horses.
