I have read, Einstein at 2 is 20"
I believe he was being put in the genius books of records as the smallest stallion weighing 6lbs at birth. Not sure if that has been done.

Einstein turned one this past April. I am not sure if they know how to measure him properly. It would be interesting to have him measured by someone who knows how to do it right. He looks taller.

Just saw him on Good Morning America today celebrating his 2nd birthday. I saw a post on facebook from a fan that they say he is "around" 24" tall. I wish they would get him measured by a ring stewart and get his EXACT measurement. I am really tired of hearing that he is "around that" height. Stop guessing and get him measured already! I see he still has that roached back too among other things. :No-Sad. Einstein is very cute an all and he is obviously very WELL taken care of - I am sure the king of his farm :yes . You can tell he is well loved. But he is not the epitome of the breed and they need to stop being barn blind and admit that he is just a really a small pet quality mini.He is not the ideal in miniature horse conformation and should not be bred (i hope not). I still see dwarfism in him. While it may not be as extreme as most. I see it. I love in their interview they say his size is a throw back. LOL - FYI. A friend and I both have dwarves that are directly related to Einstein! So I can tell you his size is not just a fluke. He has dwarfism in his background.

I saw on GMA too that he was celebrating his 2nd birthday. I don't think he can be called the world's smallest horse anymore but yet they still claim he is. Also I couldn't tell if they were talking about minis but they said he had a couple of girlfriends and he's old enough to do it. He's cute but not stallion material.

To answer the original post, I believe Thumbalina is technically the smallest horse (a dwarf) at 17" (mature height).

Einstein isn't the smallest anything. There is so much deception in his "advertising" that it turns my stomach. His "official" website and fb pages are full of photoshopped pictures which tells me they know EXACTLY what they are doing. They know is has huge conformaiton flaws and if they don't know he is a dwarf, then they are not nearly as smart as I thought. His pedigree has dwarf-producing horses in it, near and far. It's a scam. Plain and simple. Of course, this is just my personal opinion ;)

I think his being or not being a dwarf is totally irrelevant. He is not the smallest horse, at "around" 24" he is probably just in the bottom size bracket (Rabbit was 24" at 24 months and grew to be 28"- both measured, btw) but, for me, first and foremost, he just is not stallion material, and never has been.
Also, for me this is almost equally as important, the owners that have declared all along he is just a well loved pet and would not be red from, now have bought him some girlfriends. Isn't that the cutest thing???

LOL -- I'm not defending Einstein or his owners, but if they don't know how to measure him correctly, they would most likely be measuring at a higher point than last mane hair/bottom of withers and therefore be measuring him TALLER than he actually is -- unless they think they should measure where his chest meets his neck or something equally unlikely.
