Miniature horses are unique, but perhaps most unusual among them is the Falabella, one of the smallest of horses. These tiny horses (not ponies, but miniature horses) rarely stand taller than 32 inches at the withers. The breed originated in Argentina in the mid-1800s with Patrick Newtall and son-in-law Juan Falabella, and were first imported to the U.S. in 1962.
The TRUMPETER SWAN is a species of swan found in North America. The heaviest living bird native to North America, it is also the largest living species of waterfowl with a wingspan that may exceed 10 ft. Adults usually measure 4 1/2 - 5 1/2 feet long. Around 85% of the world's breeding population is found in Alaska
A Thestral is a breed of winged horses with a skeletal body, face with reptilian features, and wide, leathery wings that resemble a bat's. They are very rare, and are considered dangerous by the Ministry of Magic. Thestrals are, undeservedly, known as omens of misfortune and aggression by many wizards because they are visible only to those who have witnessed death at least once (and fully accepted the concept) or due to their somewhat grim, gaunt and ghostly appearance.
