Claremont Little Van Dieman
Claremont Little Van Dieman and friends

When it comes to miniature Claremont Little Van Dieman takes the prize. Born at only 37cm tall, and five weeks premature, he had no trouble adjusting to life in a BIG world. Being so small enabled him to walk under his mum, saving him exercise, but it was not quite to good when it came to feeding as then he had to stretch to suckle from mum.

Claremont Little Van Dieman, has been named after the racehorse Van Dieman, trained by Debbie's late father Cecil Devine. Although he looks alot like his name sake don't expect him to achieve the same feats. Van Dieman won the New Zealand Trotting Cup in 1951, but it is expected that Claremont Little Van Dieman will, when he grows to maturity and reaches his expected height of 81cm, be able to be driven in harness and maybe shown.

Debbie has been breeding miniature horses for 17 years and describes Little Van Dieman as being "pretty rare". Although unsure if he is the smallest miniature horse in New Zealand, Debbie said, "It is the smallest I have ever bred."

Claremont Little Van Dieman may be small but he does not take to being bossed around by other horses.
