Mini Guide Horses Are The Adorable New Superhero The World Needs

1. It’s been known for quite some time that mini horses are magical creatures.

2. Most of us at Buzzfeed can personally attest to that fact.

This is Mystic with our Managing Editorial Director, Summer, enjoying a lovely Valentines morning together.

3. They’re a whole lot more than adorable though: they can be trained to be seeing eye animals.

4. At first, dogs couldn’t even believe it: a seeing eye HORSE?!? They laughed like jerks.


5. But Seeing Eye or Guide horses are incredibly loving and can do all that a dog can do. Like help out on public transit…

6. …and take sweet trips around the world.

7. Look at this guy walkin’ in the parking lot like a champ.

8. Just hanging out in a diner, probs digesting his mini pancakes.

9. Educated? Hell yes, they are.


10. They are absolutely fantastic listeners so they’re also great best friends.


11. This guy likes to make sure his owner washes her hands thoroughly.


12. Plane rides? Got this.

13. They’re even trained to do a little Abbey Road* action.

*Well, helping their owner cross the street safely, which is probably more important.

14. Almost as good as the services they are able to give? Their mini shoes. Here are two of their options for both the casual, modern horse and the old fashion westerner.


15. Here’s to all the mini horse heros in the world!

The Fine Print For This 'Pretty Amazing' Contest For Girls Makes Me *Facepalm*

In March 2012, Seventeen magazine launched its second annual Pretty Amazing Contest which offers a $20,000 scholarship to girls who have done “pretty amazing” things like raising money for the National Eating Disorders Association. Sounds great, right? Nope. Check out the fine print.

No wonder the National Eating Disorders Association needs money. Jerks like the editors at Seventeen are telling girls being pretty is more valuable than their “pretty amazing” accomplishments.

Congrats to SPARK Summit and the #KeepItReal campaign for their recent victory in getting Seventeen to agree to stop altering the models in their magazine. Progress!
