GOOD things come in small packages, and little Jakarda Angel is living proof.
The week-old miniature pony foal measured just 14 inches tall at birth and is considered tiny, even for her breed.
Lynda Wishart has bred miniatures for 15 years and said she had never seen one so petite, with most foals averaging around 18 inches in height.

“Angel’s a miniature, but she’s a very small miniature — we’ve never seen one that small,” the Bannockburn breeder said.
“We don’t know why she’s so tiny because her parents are normal-size miniatures, but we walked out and there she was.
“Many small ponies are dwarfs and don’t live a long life, but she’s tiny and perfect.”
