Our Little Aussie, Cutest Tiny Horse Needs a Name.

Born ten days ago at a stud in the southern state of Victoria, Australia, the 15in miniature horse – which is yet to be named – has already formed a bond with Sam Leith, 12

Silver dun tovero in colour, she was given a clean bill of health – and should reach 24in when grown.
The birth has generated such excitement in the community that local people are entering a competition to give the horse a name in time for Christmas.

Owner Lee Scown said she wanted a name that reflected the tiny, unique nature of the horse.
‘It’s the smallest horse I’ve ever had and she’s so gorgeous,’ Ms Scown said.

The horse, currently only a little taller than this book, is expected to grow to about 24 inches

    Trying to think of an appropriate name … how about ‘Lily’ (short for ‘Lilliput’) ?

      Hi travelrat,
      I also was trying to think of a name before I posted, but I’m pretty useless at stuff like that. Lily sounds really good, I believe they have made it into a competition, it will be interesting to hear what name they decide on. I noticed in the paper that there also was a few suggestions, I just hope they do an update on the story, so we can all find out what name was chosen.

    She is lovely, I love her colours, she is so cute. I would love to have one of these miniature horses, if only I didn’t live in the suburbs. I was thinking maybe Thumbelina as a name, do you know how I might go about submitting the name?

      Hi Sue,
      I also would love to have a miniature horse, but I live in the city also so, it’s a no go I’m afraid. The name Thumbelina is the name of the smallest horse in the world, born in America, I can’t remember where, but also a miniature horse. There are a lot of video’s on youtube about Thumbelina, if you would like to have a look.
      I couldn’t find a reference to where you can submit some names, maybe putting a comment in the paper? It’s worth a shot. I noticed most of the comments are names people have thought of.

    LOL. Here I was thinking I had come up with something unique, Thumbelina is also a beautiful looking horse. So tiny, they certainly are adorable.
