Paws Party: Meet Alexander Hankin And His Pony Danny DeVito
The most arty miniature horse you’ll ever meet!
Art Girls Jungle 25 Feb 2021

We’re sure you’ve noticed a certain HRH Alexander on the gram. The art and property mogul has an impressive following, but really, it’s his miniature horse Danny DeVito that really steals the show. Imagine being the cutest pony in the world, and having an art king as your dad?! Danny DeVito really is living the dream, so we just had to speak to him all about his amazing life!

Give us one sentence about your furry friend! 

Danny DeVito is mine and my sister, Danielle Hankin’s, miniature horse and is the most lovable creature in the world.

What do both of your regular days look like? 

My day consists of working on property deals and Art programing. Danny’s is a lot of eating and playing in his pasture. 

What do you think he thinks about your art world career

Danny loves that I support the arts. He thinks it’s so important to give back and support artists in any way possible. 

Is he supporting your art world career? 

He loves to watch Luminaries Live, my talk show through the Museum of Arts and Design. 

Is he creative, too? 

Danny is creative; he is always making new little path designs in his pasture. 

His appearance: Botero or Giacometti? 


Did you ever feature him on your IG account and does he already have some fans out there? 

Danny makes regular appearances on my account but he also is featured along with the rest of our animals on @rolling_hills_farm_pa

Own Instagram account? 


Would he be up for cuddles after a shitty day in the art world? 

Danny can be stingy with his cuddles but if you bring him a treat he’s a total mush. 

Is he upset if you go on a business trip? (Obviously wfh most of these days :)) 

Danny loves attention even if he pretends to be shy sometimes. He’s happiest being fawned over

Which piece of art would describe him best? 

Danny sees himself  most in the painting Napoleon Crossing the Alps – Jacques-Louis David.

Any animal grams you enjoy following

I love @juniperfoxx the domesticated foxes are beyond adorable. 

Nominate an art world friend with a pet to be interviewed in the future?
