Not only a role model but some how Beth got into one of the photos. I'm rooting for Shammy-The Miniature Horse to outsell Yoda this Christmas. A tiny horse who suffers from a rare form of dwarfism has become an internet hit after his owner posted a video of him on Facebook. At just over 20 inches tall, Shammy is a third of the size of an average horse - but what he lacks in size he makes up for in personality. As a result the five-month-old horse has a 500-strong following on Facebook and his owner, Michele Puryear, has written a book about him. 'He follows me around and runs in and out of the horse trailer - if he can find something to get into, he's going to get in to it.' When he's not causing trouble around Ms Puryear's farm in the U.S. state of Georgia, Shammy loves nothing more than a good cuddle. She said: 'When I'm here I can just spend my time sitting on the ground with him and he'll stay with me until I make him get up - he just loves attention.
