Dasher - Miniature Horse
Brown mini-horse Dasher is a rescued horse: his original purchaser was unable to care for him. Probably born in 2006, despite his small size he is full grown. Mini-horses range in height at the top of the shoulders (withers) from 34 to 38 inches. Zoo Docents are teaching him the social skills required for an outreach animal. Miniature horses are not ponies. A pony is a naturally occurring small horse. Miniature horses have been specially bred for their petite stature.
