Micro horse enjoys international fame

There aren't many one-month-olds who can claim to be internationally famous but a youngster from Tonbridge is exactly that.

But this infant is an American miniature horse who, when he was born, was one of the smallest in Britain at just 36cm tall. He's called "micro Dave" and we sent our own Dave along to meet him.

Reporter David Johns spoke to micro-Dave's owner Jen Baldwin-Murphy and groom Claire Murphy.
