The tallest horse in the world

Poe is a Clydesdale farm horse who lives on a farm in Ontario, Canada and he is almost certainly the tallest horse in the world, according to his owner Shereen Thompson.

 

How tall is he?
He stands 6 foot 10 inches at the shoulder and is a whopping ten-foot tall with his head held high.

 

How much does he eat?
Each day, Poe munches his way through two bales of hay, 10lb of grain and, if it’s sunny and hot, he can lap up 75 gallons of water!

 

Interesting fact
Before being bought by Ms Thompson, Poe used to work to work as a dray horse pulling a cart filled with crates of beer. Now he’s one of the most famous horses in Canada and has traded in his boring 9-5 for a life of glamour as he spends much of his time at fairs showing off for his admiring fans.

 

Holy guacamole! I really want to...
