Tallest Living Horse
"World record for the tallest living horse!"
Featured in the 2006 Guinness World Record book.
Let me tell you...Radar, is certainly one gigantic horse! We got the opportunity to see him when he came to the local Big R store in our town. Unfortunately, the pictures really don't do any justice in showing the colossal size of this steed.
If you ever have an opportunity to see, Radar, don't pass it up. It's not every day you get to see a horse that is 19 Hands and 3-1/2 inches tall. It appeared the hoof on this guy is the size of all four combined on a standard sized horse. Though a sign was posted warning visitors that he might bite, he truly exhibited characteristics of being a 'gentle giant,' even with crowds all around him snapping flash photos.
An amazing site seeing this huge horse inside the store:
