As sweet as Koda is - I'm afraid my friend Sandra is right. Because he is so small, his life is threatened with problems. Sandra doesn't believe in raising miniature horses and she has a point. However, the normal size horses are her favorites.

Just got through reading all the posts on this article from down under! I am a bit upset since a fair number of people seem to think the money for this little horse would have been spent better on some other 'more worth while causes'! Now who in hell are they to tell anyone on how to spend their money? Maybe its just jealosy that they don't have any ...

This is a great story. For those who feel that the money could have been spent better feeding the poor, I say look at what a great goodwill ambassador this little horse is. It teaches children empathy and love and most children loves horses anyway, he visits with seniors and it is a known fact that when the elderly can be visited by animals in nursing homes and hospitals they recover faster, feel better and do better than those who have no animal contact. They should be happy that others will be able to share some of their lives with this horse and spend a little more enjoyable time on earth than they would have missed out on if they had never met this horse. I think it is wonderful.
