||Nine years old|
||Lockport, New York, USA|
name is Jumbo - funny huh? funny because I am only 26 inches tall.
I am a miniature horse that was born with dwarfism. My owner Marie
loves me very much and I actually have a playmate named Major, he is
also a dwarf. We are special in the fact that we were born with some
pretty terrible birth defects but we are very happy and healthy. I am
nine years old and some people said I would never see my 2nd birthday.
Well let me tell you - Marie takes very good care of us and she would
like everyone to know that you really should not mess with mother
nature. If our original breeder would have tested for this dwarfism
gene we probably would have never had this disorder. Oh well, enough
about me - Marie put the helmet in the photo so you can see how tiny I
am. Gotta go eat now so have a great day!!! P.S. the sticker on my
side keeps those nasty flies away.
