Big Jake is the tallest horse in the world.

The 11-year-old Belgian gelding has taken the ​title of the world’s tallest living horse in the Guiness World Records.

Jake stands at 20 hands 2 and 3/4 inches or 210.2 centimetres.  He weighs 2600 pounds (1200 kg)!!

With Big Jake, everything needs to be BIG!! His stall is 20X20 feet when an average stall is about 12X12 feet.  And when he is transported his owners need to use a semi trailer.

Big Jake is on a strictly healthy diet, consuming 1 1/2 bales of hay and 40 quarts of oats per day.
