Meet Martha – The Cutest Horse In The World

R&R Ranch is a beautiful animal sanctuary located in Chesterfield, Missouri. It is a safe haven for rescued miniature horses and ponies, dedicated to spreading awareness and education for their proper treatment and care.

The ranch is also home for other animals including dogs, birds, donkeys, a cat, and a bunny. But the most popular resident in the sanctuary is a miniature horse with dwarfism named Martha. She was born with a host of health issues, including twisted front legs. Martha was only 3 months old when she was rescued from a horse breeder last January. She was sick and infested with lice, but with antibiotics, a hoof trim, and tender loving care from humans, she started to get well, and it wasn’t long before her bubbly personality kicked in.

Even though Martha has some physical limitations, it doesn’t hinder her from enjoying her life to the fullest. She loves to play, sprint, and dance around the horse barn. She can even moonwalk like MJ and her video emulating the late pop icon’s signature move became viral. She has captured the hearts of everyone.

With her popularity soaring high, R&R Ranch hopes that this will help them spread public awareness about the proper care of these mini horses. Check out the latest updates about Martha below.

Wow, okay, we’d like to take a deep breath and kind of chill out from all of the media hysteria over Martha this week. . . Martha’s “moonwalking” video went viral on Monday and hasn’t slowed down yet, with nearly 5M views. . . Talk about getting a crash course in social media, we got one 😑 Unfortunately, there were some people responding to her video critically as though we are promoting dwarfism with a funny video of her. . . For those of you who know us and have been following us for any length of time, know that this couldn’t be any further from the truth. . . We tried to make our position known on a few substantial posts and we think it did some good. . . We also know that many of you, our friends, came to our defense on different posts and pages, and for that, we are eternally grateful❤️ . . So, thank you for love and support you have always shown towards our horses and what we do with them. We will continue to show Martha’s silliness but, it’s also high time to bring back stories of the rest of our babies who undoubtedly have just as special place in our hearts as our sweet Martha does 💘 . . . . . . . . #miniaturehorse #miniaturehorses #miniaturehorsesofinstagram #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #horseriding #hunterjumper #dressage #dwarfminiaturehorse #pony #eventing #ottb #eventing #horseaddict #equine #equinephotography #equinetherapy #equestrian #equestrianstyle #equestrian_style_magazine #horsegram #showjumping #poniesofinstagram #adoptdontshop
