The 9-year-old Belgian gelding from Smokey Hollow Farm near Poynette stands 20 hands, 2.75 inches – that’s one quarter inch short of 6-foot-11 – from the bottom of his unshod hooves to his withers. He’s taller than the previous record-holder, a Clydesdale from Texas named Remington, who’s 20 hands tall.
