There are miniature horses, and then there is Microdave, possibly Britain's smallest horse.

When Microdave was born, he stood 12 inches tall, the same height as a two-liter bottle of Coke. Today he measures in at 18 inches, which may still make him Britain's smallest horse.

His owner, Jen Baldwin-Murphy, of Tonbridge, Kent, calls him Microdave because his sire is Little Dave, named after her husband, David.

Baldwin-Murphy describes Microdave as a naughty, spoiled child, who runs circles around his dam, Haysden Samber Tiddly.

"He is the most precocious foal I've ever met, just a hooligan in all respects," she said.

Thanks to his tiny size and big personality, Microdave has attracted quite a fan club, and receives visitors often.

"I'm having to check their pockets as they leave so they haven't stolen him," Baldwin-Murphy joked.

He has also been featured in a number of publications, including Horse & Hound.

At twelve days old, Microdave stood a full two inches shorter than Einstein who is recognized as the world's smallest horse.

If he doesn't grow much taller, he could achieve the title of the smallest horse in the world.
