The World’s Tallest Horse Has Died

Rip a page from the Guiness Book of World Records. The Knoxville News Sentinel is reporting today that “Tina” the Shire has died. Recorded officially by the Guiness experts as the tallest horse on the planet, Tina allegedly died while in treatment for a musculoskeletal problem at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in Alabama.

She was owned by the Williams family of Niota, Tennessee and had been judged the tallest horse in the world in 2007. And she was only four years old–still growing!

Another Shire, this time in Australia, is waiting in the wings to take over the title.

Rest in peace, big girl.
