Lil' ho

I burst out laughing looking at this marvelous sight—so prosh! LOVE the feets put together.


It's from Emma L., the 'not tech savvy' sender-inner, from Oz Horse Sales.

Maybe it was a little rainy out but whatever the reason, these horses look cute in their coats. Too bad they don't have matching hats - that would have just clinched it. :o) [Read More]


Noooooooooo! TOO cute. Our NEIGH-bors have both big and little horsies in their pasture but never have they looked THIS kyoot.

A big thing!
With a smaller version of the thing!
Wearing covering things!

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 06:08 PM

It's like a lap pony! He's so tiny I just want to plop down on the couch with him and watch movies while feeding him chips. Lethally cute!

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 06:16 PM

So cute!!!!, but I think it would be even cuter if there was a monkey riding the big horse & a chihuahua riding the mini-me.

But, that's just me.

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 06:27 PM

"Ho" makes it less cute.

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 06:38 PM

It's like a horse with his pet horse! I want that lil' guy for my backyard too.


 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 06:38 PM

I totally agree about the feet being together... that's about the first thing I noticed and it makes the picture, imo!

air... I... need... air!

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 06:41 PM

Does anyone else feel a draft in here?

I love me my big horsies.

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 06:43 PM

Nice one, Aubrey! It actually is a little drafty around here.

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 06:44 PM

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeegads that is cute. Muy proshioso!

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 06:48 PM

But wait do my eyes deceive me
An object best described as teeny
Wearing a blue tres chic blankie
A squee-inducing TINY HORSIE!!!

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 06:49 PM

Is that a watchamacallit? A Fabella? They use those as guide-ponies apparently... Because a dog isn't unique enough I guess...

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 07:11 PM

This is too cute!

They match.

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 07:19 PM

Eeeeeee size contrast!

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 07:20 PM

Eeee! CLYDESDALE!! I just LOVE Clydes!! So cute!

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 07:27 PM

R.Moore, no, I think it's just a plain ol' Miniature Horse. (Fallabella is what you're thinking though!) Correct me if I'm mistaken.

Love that bald-faced Clyde. And the fact that the little guy only comes up to the hocks. :D Eee!

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 07:29 PM

Eenie meenie *miney* mo...No... eenie meenie miney *mo*... Wait a minute, make mine a draft! With a little treat on the side.

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 07:45 PM

Other treats on the side:


 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 07:47 PM

it's..it's..it's like the big clyde is presenting the little one for the first time. Check the back hoofie, poised to curtsy.

I love how their heads are in the same position.

Lurve the ponehs, 'specially the extremes - big, big horsie, teeny tiny horsie!

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 07:51 PM



Is Summer over yet?

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 08:00 PM

Aw..all I can say is Aw Aw Aw!!!
What beautiful critters!

The Cloverdale babies...omg. When my goats pass on....miniature horses???

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 08:12 PM

ahem Cloverminis that is...it's gettin' late.

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 08:13 PM

As for guide ponies, they need less expensive food than dogs, and they live something like 20 years. Depending on the breed, there's 12-15 working years in a guide dog.

I have a friend who seriously considered getting a guide pony... and then worried she might not out live the pony.

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 08:15 PM

PS....ho' stands for "horses", eh???

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 08:15 PM

Love big horses with fuzzy feet....

If that little character needs to be shod, the farrier will have to use a jewelers' eyepiece to do it.... (Anybody else remember Norman Thelwell's cartoon, "Putting shoes on for you lot is playing Old Harry with my eyesight!"? Though my favorite was the smirking pony coming back alone with brambles in its mane to a woman standing on the front steps saying, "What have you done with her THIS time?")

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 08:26 PM

off the scales cute

How do these pals scritch each other's withers, tho?

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 08:29 PM

Michelle: A stepladder certainly figures in there, somewhere...

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 09:08 PM

Such a bonny little horsie! Wait...Bonny and Clyde!

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 09:47 PM

Bud clydesdale in training!! OMG!! Too sweet. Can he pull the wagon?

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 10:10 PM

Oh my god!!! This has to be my favorite photo on Cuteoverload ever! I'm a horse-lover with all my heart, the combo of Mr.Big meeting this little cutie, both dressed up - looks so posh!

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 10:22 PM

The little one is what's known in horse circles as a "stepping horse." They're mainly bred as footholds for stepping up onto bigger horses. There's also a rig design that can strap two of them to either side of the rear end of a normal horse, to be used as "training horses" for young riders who are always losing their balance and tipping their horses over.

giggle fest. giggle giggle giggle. scroll up, giggle again.
(I've often wanted to get a teeny kitten for my catten, but this size ratio just can't be beat).

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 10:49 PM

eeeee! and they are wearing horsie jackets!

 |  Aug 20, 2006 at 11:33 PM

(teeny tiny voice)
HEY! Who you callin a HO, bitch!

Oh, and to answer why miniature guide horses instead of just dogs, the reason is that teeny horsies live longer than dogs, and for someone who's lost a guide dog, it's really hard to get another knowing in 10 years or so he'll be gone - Cuddles herself is supposed to live more like 20 years.

Just a little fun fact! :)

clydesdale & shetland pony... BOTH SCOTTISH! coincidence? i think not

 |  Aug 21, 2006 at 02:33 AM

Meg, did you name that photo *bebeh ho ho*? Too funny. I think of the Little Debbie dessert *HoHo*. Hee heeeeeee. SO prosh!

 |  Aug 21, 2006 at 03:24 AM

Upon seeing this picture, I actually made a sound like "Awwww! Mue mue mue..."

His mane is so poofy!

 |  Aug 21, 2006 at 04:51 AM

My Little Ponies, My Little Ponies!! (Cue the earworm music) "Now with matching, reversible Blankies!!"

I want to brush their tailses, especially the little one - looks like he just woke up!

 |  Aug 21, 2006 at 04:56 AM

Gary Fixler and Mlle. X -- big grins & gold stars.

Aubrey -- Bonny & Clyde... big groans & gold stars.

Morning, all!

 |  Aug 21, 2006 at 05:22 AM

Good mornin' good mornin'!
I DO so love this picture I am back for mo'.

My youngest son moves out today *sob* <----that's a sincere cry, I'm not calling him names!

I'm gonna miss the bugger. So...what better to fill the empty nest than ponies, draft horses, kitties and bunnies???

 |  Aug 21, 2006 at 06:13 AM

Aubrey the Kueen of Pundom, I bow to your ingenuity! [sounds of scraping knees on floor as I exit backwards]

Get a load of this bouncing bebeh:


 |  Aug 21, 2006 at 06:13 AM

Gary, I have never heard of a steppin' horse before. Wouldn't the little bugger get smushed if someone stepped on him to climb up onto the big guy?
