Cheryl Davis' horse Remington may turn out to be the world's tallest horse. Davis, of Princeton, Texas, hopes to get Remington into the Guinness Book of World Records as the tallest living horse. The current record holder, Radar, is a Belgian draft horse from Mount Pleasant, Texas. Remington, a Clydesdale, measures 6 feet, 8 inches from hoof to shoulder, says Davis — only a quarter of an inch or half an inch taller than the reigning horse. But the formal measurement, she says, will be done by a vet on Friday and Saturday, one with his shoes on and one with his shoes off. Photo credit: Bunny Morrissey Source
