Falabella Pony Description
  The Falabella is the smallest and the rarest breeds of horses in the world. It originated in Argentina. It is not strong enough to ride, but it is intelligent and friendly, making it an ideal pet. It is a hardy animal and can sometimes be used in a harness. They are capable of jumping. Their appearance is similar to Arabian and Morgan horses. It shares the beauty, character, and poise of the larger breeds in a very diminutive package. It has a dominant dwarfism gene, meaning that even mixed with larger breeds, its offspring is likely to be very small. The Falabella has only seventeen vertebrae, rather than the usual eighteen, and it is missing one pair of ribs.
