 Houdini doing his standing proud stance. He’s totally aware he’s cute. 

is he a rescue?? he’s so terrifyingly thin D:

Excuse me? Houdini is nowhere close to “terrifyingly thin.” His ribs aren’t even protruding or anything. He’s 2 weeks old, he’s actually at a better weight than most foals his age. 

What is he supposed to look like, a beach ball with legs?

how is that terrifyingly thin
what horses have you been looking at buddy

Fell in love with this beauty at new holland today. Bid up to 300 and then stopped just because he did have a swollen ankle. He went for meat and it was so sad

NEW TEST FOR DWARFISM AVAILABLE
A new genetic test for a form of dwarfism in miniature horses is now available from the University of Kentucky’s Animal Genetic Testing and Research Laboratory.
The test identifies carriers of four mutations in the aggrecan gene, which contains proteins critical to the development of cartilage structures. The mutations may result in a range of physical issues, including respiratory problems, oral malformations and abnormal bone growth. 
Researchers say carriers of the mutated gene may not exhibit any outwards signs, but when two carriers are mated, the result can be a foal affected with any combination of the genes, some of which are lethal.
The new test does not identify all forms of dwarfism in Miniature Horses or forms found in other breeds. For more information about the test, visit the laboratory’s website or call 859-218-1193.
Article from Equus magazine
If people refuse to stop breeding horses with the gene there is no excuse not to have your breeding stock tested so dwarf foals won’t be produced. Horses with the gene should never be bred, but realistically there are people who don’t care, and at least this test might make people more aware of what’s in their stock so crossing of two carriers can be avoided.

Omg….he has to be photoshopped. Or he’s taken HYPP to a whole other level.
