I have dug deep trying to make sure this was real…and it looks like it is!
This is Phantom, the world’s largest horse!
Seven-year-old Phantom is a Shire breed who currently lives at Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue in Maryland. This giant horse was rehomed to the rescue after outgrowing his own home. Shire horses are known to be a large horse breed already, though they typically only measure around 17 hands, or 5 feet, 8 inches — Phantom, though, measures 20.1 hands from his hooves to his back, just under 7 feet tall. When you add in the height of his head, he’s easily 8 feet tall.
