Ontario woman says her horse is the tallest in the world

Ten-year-old Clydesdale measures 6’ 10”

Poe is a gentle, 10 year old Clydesdale who used to haul crates for Budweiser in London, Ontario. Even though his breed is known for its humungous size, Poe stands above the rest, measuring 6’ 10” at the shoulder. His owner, Sheenen Thompson, says he’s a full two inches bigger then the tallest horse currently listed in the Guinness book of Records. He’s “a real puppy,” says Thompson, “but he does sometimes forget his strength and drags me along if he wants to play or go chasing something.”
