World’s NO.1 tallest horse is Luscombe Nodram – nickname Noddy has returned home to QLD for a unique look at the Clydesdale and weighty Horse. Nodram was born at a Queensland stud to a mare and sire from England. After being away for 6 years Noddy returned to join in Australia’s biggest and most important weighty horse show. After departure house like a 15-hand weanling, Noddy coming back likes a 20.2 hand horse.
After finishing his time at the Royal Easter Exhibition, Noddy will create his approach to QLD. Noddy had begun life just like all of our other foals. He was a normal height when he was born and a normal height as a weanling. That is where Noddy stops being normal. He just kept growing and growing. Now Nodram stands 20.2 (2.057m) hands. Nodram was bred and born at the Shires of Luscombe in Queensland. His sire is the grey Shire Stallion, Luscombe What’s Wanted “Ted” and his dam is the black Shire Mare, Cedars Annabella . Both of these horses stand 18 hands. Nodram’s grandfather Great Grandsire Ladbrooke Edward was also tall. In 1981, he was in the Guinness Book of World Records as the tallest living horse, standing at 19.2 hands. Noddy has been a special guest at Equitane in the past as well as making many other appearances in Victoria. He is currently the superstar of television shows, magazines, and newspaper clippings.
The owner of the tallest horse, Jane bought Noddy as a six-month-old foal when she became interested in training a heavy horse to do work around her 40-acre farm in the outskirts of Melbourne. Noddy is now the world’s tallest horse. His height is 81 inches or 2.057m – puts him a full inch (2.5cm) taller than Tina, a Shire horse officially listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the worlds tallest. It seems that Noddy’s owner, Jane Greenman, has plenty more of Noddy to look forward to in the future: Heavy horses continue to grow to the age of seven and it is possible the gelding will put on another 200kg before he’s fully grown.
Noddy, the Shire horse is a strapping lad. He weighed about 1.3 tones (1300kg) and could be one-day tip the scales at 1.5 tonnes. He takes an eight-foot cover and his Australian owner, Jane is getting him use to a ladder to make getting into the saddle a little easier. He eats about three times like a normal horse. Aside from his food, he also enjoys a sleep on the ground but rarely more than 10 or 18 minutes because of the pressure lying down puts on his massive frame. However, he has found one sleeping pose to his liking that is lying on his back with his four feet in the air.
NO.2 Tina, from Niota, Tennessee is now in the Guinness Book of World Records for 2008 as the Tallest Horse in the World. It is about 20 hands (81 inches) tall. That puts Tina at nearly seven feet tall by which Tina has officially claimed the title, “World’s Tallest Horse. She has taken the top position from former record holder Radar who is a little more than 19 hands tall. JensTina eats 40-60 lbs of hay, 20 lbs of grain, and 25 gallons of water of each day. As a reward for her good behavior during her measuring covered by the media, a 25-pound bag of carrots had given to her. However, she eats normally as eats at least 5 pounds of carrots a week, anyway. “Deighton Royal Diplomat” which was Tina’s sire, was imported from England and stands at 19.1 hands. Tina was grown up on the Shire farm at Blair in Nebraska and later sold to the Williams when she was 4 months old. World’s largest horse official name is “Jenson’s Diplomat Tina.
Worlds NO.3 tallest horse, Digger at just 4 years of age is a regular teenager. Digger measures standing at 19.3 hands (6ft 6in) tall and this giant Clydesdale is called Britain’s real life War Horse. However, Digger did not start a very healthy in life; he was an orphan after his former owners could not cope with him, due to health reasons. After that he was taken into International League for the Protection of Horses’ at,Belwade Farm in Aboyne of Scotland.
Now Digger is more than ok, devouring 42 to 55 pounds of food each day, plus treats like chocolate muffins, carrots and apples from visitors. However, Mounted Regiment officer Alex Owen has every faith the nine-foot-high Clydesdale, who eats up to four stones of food per day and guzzles 25 gallons of water, will make the grade in time. The most Strange thing about Digger is his best friendship with Sweep, a 12 years old Shetland mini pony who can simply walk right under Digger‘s belly.
