At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

Reports come in from time to time of tiny horses.  For example, mini-horses of 16"-18" were reported in the Philippines in the 1970s.  More commonly, however, such horses are reported as the steeds of fairies.  Thus about 1920 a Mrs Hardy of New Zealand wrote to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle saying she had sone perceived eight or ten small persons riding tiny ponies.  Lady Gregory, the Irish folklorist, in a book published in 1920, was told by a man from County Clare that he had seen a field full of men riding tiny ponies.  

If such creatures exist and serve as the mounts of fairy folk, I suspect they are interdimensional creatures.
