They sometimes say that big things come in small packages, and Alvin is a prime example of this. Even though Alvin is a tiny horse, he has a personality that is larger than life.
In fact, Alvin does something that is so amazing that it is sure to steal your heart. You really can’t help but notice it, because Alvin does it every time a camera is pulled out.
According to The Dodo, Alvin is a Shetland pony who is 10 years old. He is not exactly the biggest horse on the farm where he lives in Sweden, but his owner, Paulina Tufvesson, loves him all the same.
She takes care of dogs and sheep on the farm and also trains horses. Alvin also got some training, but he does something naturally that really is worth noting.
It all starts when somebody pulls a camera out. Suddenly, Alvin turns into a different animal altogether. He wants to be in the picture no matter what, and according to Paulina, he will do anything to make sure he is in the frame.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about Alvin is the fact that he was shy when they first met. Paulina knew that she could work with him directly and help him with some training, but she had no idea he would come out of his shell in such an amazing way.
When Paulina trains her farm dogs, she uses a clicker and she also decided to use it as a way to motivate Alvin. It didn’t happen all at once but with some patience, Alvin got used to the clicker training, and eventually, he became quite a ham.
Now that Alvin is trained and less shy, he is out running around with the other animals on a regular basis. He has even become friends with the sheep, and perhaps that has something to do with the fact that they are similar in size.
In the end, Alvin has done more than simply become a friend to Paulina and some animals on the farm. He has captivated the world.
