Worlds tallest horse

The Instapundit has a post up today about The Worlds Tallest Horse. The horse is named Tina and is a large English Shire......and get this .....she is 20 hands tall ( 4" per hand). Thats 6'6" at the withers and a long way to the ground from the saddle. From the Knoxville News-
Tina, the large English Shire who recently became the tallest horse in the world, has now been certified by the Guinness Book of World Records. Owners Marge and Jim Williams have received the official papers from the organization after Tina was measured last summer for the record at 20 hands (80 inches) at her withers.
I have worked on a lot of tall ones over the years but I bet that one would be a real bugger to pass a stomach tube on.
