Lots of web chatter and shared video about animals 24/7, but here's my vote for top videos of the week.

Tiny miniature pinto colt Einstein was born April 22 in Barnstead, New Hampshire. Einstein  weighed 6 lbs. and is 14 inches tall. His owners were reportedly astonished at his perfect proportions.

My kids have stuffed animals bigger than this horse. Check it out.

On the other end of the spectrum is Big Jake, a 9-year-old Belgian gelding who is the Guinness world record holder for world's tallest living horse. Jake lives in Poynette, Wis. with owner Jerry Gilbert.

At one quarter inch short of 6 feet, 11 inches, Big Jake is almost three inches taller than the previous record holder, a Clydesdale from Texas. His owner describes him as a gentle giant.

Wouldn't it be great to see them together?
