Measuring just 12inches (30cm) tall and weighing three kilograms at birth his owner Elena Chistyakova described Gulliver's birth as a 'miracle.

She said: 'It was as big as a cat. I was so happy, it is a miracle.'   

Gulliver is ironically named after Gulliver's Travels, where the namesake is a giant to the little people who capture him on Liliput Island. 

The tiny horse looked content being the bigger animal for once as he played with a dog at his recent show - he even let the pooch jump on for a ride.

Most American Miniature horses measure 86.4cm (34inchs) high at most.

This makes one-year-old Gulliver almost half the size of the usual breed.  

Gulliver is believed to be in for a chance at taking the Guinness World Record for smallest living male horse. 

The smallest female horse record has been held by Thumbelina, a miniature sorrel brown mare, who measures 17.5 in (44.5 cm) since 2016.
