Although Rachel and Charlie are hoping Einstein is crowned the world's smallest horse, the title currently belongs to a dwarf horse named Thumbelina. "Thumbelina is what's called a dwarf horse," Rachel says. "She has a head that's disproportionately large. She has these tiny little legs, and this really big body. Essentially she's a little bit shorter than Einstein, but she weighs twice as much as he does." Rachel thinks there should be a category for dwarf horses and a category for non-dwarf horses. "She's so cute, but she's really different than him," she says.
"Einstein is every little girl's dream," Rachel says. "He's just this tiny little horse that you can just have in your yard and literally just pick up and put in your lap."
"He's just brought a lot of love and joy to our lives," Charlie says.
