July 27, 2007: Tallest and smallest horse



The Mail does it again, great source of IotD...

The smallest horse in the world is Thumbelina; IotD catalogued her last year. Now the tallest horse, named Radar, has been pictured with the little one for a photo layout for the Guinness Book.

Quote:
Thumbelina, who weighs 4st 9lb (65 lbs), was born on a farm in St Louis, Missouri.

Her owners breed miniature horses but Thumbelina is a further quirk of nature - a miniature of a miniature.

She eats two cups of grain and a handful of hay each day.

Radar, at 6ft 71/2in from hoof to shoulder, is from Mount Pleasant, Texas.

At 2,400lb, he has a giant appetite to match, putting away 20 gallons of water a day and 18lb of grain.

Wow! I know Radar wanted to do something more with his tattoo, but I think he went overboard - he looks like a horse now.



Uisge Beatha  Friday Jul 27 08:45 AM

OK, next I want to see a Monkey on Thumbelina on a Goat on a Platform on Radar. Oh, and just what does Billy-Bob Barty think he's gonna do if Radar wants to wander off?

The little kid there surprises me the most. One twist of the head and he will go flying.

Regardless of whether it is a kid, midget, or a full grown adult, who ever is holding those reins could go in on twist of the head. That horse is huge.

The Cellar will never be satisfied until the Worlds Tallest Man mounts Radar (*ahem*) and the Worlds Smallest Man rides Thumbelina.

Dynamite, barefoot serpent!

This picture is clearly photoshopped. Look at all the artifacts and shadow angles.:p

Glatt beating the not yet dead tallest horse.

Oh yeah, lets see you eat either one.

The little one looks about the right size for a cheesesteak.

Ah, leave it to one of the fine Philly folk.


xoxoxoBruce  Friday Jul 27 07:57 PM

I don't know, I think it would be 30 lbs even after an enema.



wolf  Saturday Jul 28 01:58 AM

You have to allow for the organ meats. They're for hot dogs, not cheesesteaks.



SPUCK  Saturday Jul 28 05:54 AM

Prolly be real bow legged like, after ri'den that there pony for a while.



Aliantha  Saturday Jul 28 06:01 AM

Did anyone else notice the crazy horse-like structure at the top left side of the picture? It looks like it's about to take a bit out of Radars arse.

Hah! I never noticed it until you said that, but now I certainly agree. It reminds me of Pokey; I wonder where Gumby is?

(It's not photoshopped, honest)

((and who didn't think that kid needed a little something. Like flame-grilling. I want mine with cheese, no pickles, no mustard, thanks.))



Uisge Beatha  Saturday Jul 28 02:38 PM

I, for one, am now satisfied.

Holy cow--er...horse. The little one is about the size of the tall one's snout.
