Meet The Guinness World Record Holder For The Tallest Living Horse

If you’re a horse enthusiast, this is going to be a big treat … you might even say the biggest treat. The horse in this video is Big Jake, who lives with his loving owner, Jerry Gilbert, at Sleepy Hollow Farms in Poynette, Wisconsin. At 6 feet, 11 inches and a whopping 2,600 pounds, Big Jake is the Guinness World Record holder for being the tallest living horse in the world. That’s a lot of horse!

Don’t let his giant size fool you though. According to Jerry, he’s an absolute sweetheart and a total gentle giant who loves goofing off – or horsing around, if you love a good pun – and relishes the attention he gets for his record-breaking size. Big Jake is also quite the philanthropist and works regularly with Ronald McDonald House to raise money for a worthy cause.
