FarmVille's Miniature Horse is based on the real-world miniature horse which, unlike a pony, maintains the proportions of a full-sized horse. Ponies are defined as any horse measuring less than 4 feet 10 inches (150 cm) at the shoulder; however, they almost always have proportionally shorter legs and wider barrels than a full-sized horse. It is a great challenge to breed horses for small size without introducing traits of dwarfism. Miniature horses usually stand less than 3 feet 2 inches (97 cm) at the shoulder. They are often kept as family pets and are occasionally trained to assist the disabled. They come in a wide variety of colors.
