Poe the Clydesdale may be the world’s tallest horse – and owner Shereen Thompson wants the Guinness Book of World Records to confirm it.

Miss Thompson, who owns a farm in Tupperville, Ontario, measured 10-year-old Poe at 20.2 hands – or 80.8 inches.

The current world record holder, Remington, from Princeton in Texas, measures a mere 80 inches.

Miss Thompson, herself just 5ft 3in, said: “We want to get the Guinness guys here as soon as possible.

“We have known for a while that he could be the tallest horse in the world, we just need to get the official documents that the people in London want to see.

“Poe is 20.2 hands and I know that Remington is 80 inches tall, so that means that Poe has him beat.”

Poe weighs 3000lb (1.5 tons), stands 10 feet tall with head raised, and consumes two bales of hay, 10lb of grain and 75 gallons of water each day.

The huge Clydesdale used to work as a dray horse in London, Ontario, pulling a cart filled with crates of beer. Now Miss Thompson displays the equine giant to amazed onlookers.

She said: “We take him to fairs across Lambton County.

“He is extremely popular, but his size always means people keep a cautious distance from him - although they shoudn't, as he is a real puppy.

“But he does sometime forget his strength and drags me along if he wants to play or go chasing something that has caught his attention.”
