That’s a Whole Lot of Horse


remipuppracticeCheryl Davis of Princeton, Texas celebrated some great news on Monday, her Clydesdale horse, Remington, was named the World’s Largest Living Horse by the Guinness Book of Records people. Measuring in at a robust 80 inches without shoes, and topping the scales at over 3,000 pounds, Remi is a whole lot of horse.

He even has his own blog, called Of Course I’m a Horse which follows his adventures. Cheryl describes her large equine friend as playful as a puppy and like a feisty teenager.

“I was always proud of him, but I’m even more so now.” Cheryl said after receiving the news, “That’s the whole name of the game – to break the record.”

Because of his size, Remington requires special-made shoes for his size 10 hooves and a special trailer to transport him place to place. Am I the only one wondering what the conversion rate is from a horse size 10 to junk size? I can’t be the only one right?

Regardless, to celebrate his honor Remington received a few extra carrots and Cheryl got a certificate from the Guinness folks though  she’s unsure where she’ll hang it up. “Not in the barn, he’d probably eat it.”
