Miniature horse foal Charlie is big on personality

From a distance, you may mistake Charlie for an excited dog. The miniature horse foal was born in Queensland, Australia, to owner Shane Hancock. Despite her size, the rambunctious foal is full of pent-up energy as seen in the video below. 
While some people may confuse miniature horses with ponies, they are not the same, according to The Miniature Horse. Miniature horses are smaller than a pony and have more similar features to a traditional-size horse than a pony.

Miniature ponies are known to be gentle and friendly with humans and actually enjoy spending time with people, according to The Miniature Horse. It is apparent from the video below that Charlie enjoys human interaction. 
Born in March of 2015, Charlie acts more like the family dog than a horse, cantering around the yard and trying to garner attention from humans as well as gathering the other animals up, according to IMP Features
This miniature horse keeps company with a family of llamas, also owned by Hancock. With the same big, doe eyes characteristic of a regular-size horse and the fluffy fur of a foal, this adorable miniature horse is sure to canter her way into everyone's heart.
