Shaquille O'Neal, Paris Hilton covet world's smallest horse




Here's a pointless story with a brand-new celebrity: Einstein the miniature horse, who was featured The Oprah Winfrey Show earlier this week, is apparently the world's most sought after equine. Among the prospective buyers: Shaquille O'Neal and our arch-enemy, Paris Hilton, who apparently want him for no other reason than to possess the world's smallest horse. That sounds about right.

"Shaq would have to arm-wrestle Paris Hilton for him," owner Charlie Cantrell told the New Hampshire Union Leader. "We've been contacted by so many people, but he's not for sale. He's priceless."

For the record, Einstein, a miniature horse born April 22, is 1-foot-8 and weighs 47 pounds, even smallr than normal for a mini. And for some reason, Shaq still wants him -- when a Union Leader writer asked him if he was still interested via O'Neal's Twitter account, @THE_REAL_SHAQ, the basketball player responded: "how much I like dat horse".  Wait, that does mean he's still interested, right? Cantrell says he could hook O'Neal up with a breeder to get his own, so expect a little mini Shaq horsie army to ride through a town near you any day.
