Worlds Largest Horse: A unique horse named Radar
The Belgian horse breed, also known as Brabant, is one of the largest breeds of horses in the world today. It is a draft horse breed and has its origins in Germany. The Brabants are so large that they can measure up to 17 hands high (or hh, which is the unit of measuring a horse’s height from toe to the hoof). A testimony to the great strength and size of this particular breed of horses is Radar- the worlds largest horse. Radar stands tall, with a height of nineteen and a half hands high. The horse weighs almost 1100 kgs, which is more than a ton.
The previous record for the largest Belgium draft breed was named Brooklyn Supreme, who stood at more than 19 hands and weighed almost 1500 kgs.
