This is Oberon, who’s just tall enough to nuzzle up to some late flowering daffodils.
He’s a spring arrival at the Original Miniature Pony Centre on Dartmoor.

The foal, who is only 20in high, was named after Oberon, King of the Fairies, a character in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, because he arrived just before Shakespeare’s birthday on April 23.
Oberon is one of 17 foals due to be born at the centre this spring.
Last week, Mail Online revealed how pint-sized horse Einstein from New Hampshire, U.S.,could be a record breaker as the world's smallest foal.
The three-day old pinto stallion is just 14 inches high and weighs only an incredible 6lb.
The diminutive pony was born in Barnstead, New Hampshire, on Friday at Tiz Miniature Horse Farm.
