World's Smallest Horse Thumbelina To Raise Charities For Children

St. Louis, MO (AHN) - Thumbelina, the world's smallest living horse, will reportedly raise $1 million for children's charities this year. The owners of this miniature horse plan to have her toured across various states in the Unites States in "Thumby Mobile" - a specially made vehicle for her.
This 5-year-old horse, which suffers from dwarfism, stands just 17 inches tall and weighs just over 57 pounds. She is owned by farmers Kay and Paul Goessling, who claim she is great with people and loves attention.
Surprisingly, a charitable foundation in Thumbelina's name has already raised $US10,000 for children's causes. This little horse is also popular on television talk-shows and among schoolchildren who leave presents for her.
Thumbelina's name would be entered in 2008 Guinness Book Of World Records. She also had a chance to meet the world's largest living horse, Radar, a Belgium Draft horse from Texas standing at 6-foot-7 -- about 40 times larger than Thumbelina.

hee heee that is sooo coolhttp://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl
We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.
May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)
