What a cute little thing this baby pinto is!

BTW, in shocking news today, Rep. David Obey (D-WI) is set to retire at the end of his term. He hasn’t made it official, but the writing is on the wall. Ed Morrissey has the details on what this means for a potential Obey replacement in the primary as well as for GOP challenger Sean Duffy.

Baby pinto

Three-day-old pinto stallion named Einstein born at Tiz a miniature Horse Farm Friday feeds with its mother Tiz Fenisse in Barnstead, N.H., Sunday, April 25,2010. The diminutive horse born in New Hampshire could lay claim to the world record for lightweight foal. The pinto stallion named Einstein weighed just 6 pounds and measured 14 inches in height when he was born Friday in Barnstead, N.H. Those proportions fit a human baby just about right but are downright tiny for horse, even a miniature breed like Einstein.

    From one of my friends on the scene – the room in which the Obey announcement happened features a portrait of him. Strangely appropriate from someone who studied Soviet government for his graduate work.
