Photo of the Day: The tallest horse in the world

From The Globe and Mail: "The world's tallest horse Luscombe Nodram, or Noddy, stands with his owner Jane Greenman before they depart on major tour which will include appearances at the Sydney Royal Easter Show and Brisbane, in Melbourne. The Shire horse is seven-years-old, stands at 20.2 hands high and at 1.5 tonnes weighs three times more than the average thoroughbred racehorse. The Shire horse is now endangered with approximately 2000 left in the world with very few of them being grey."

That's a big horse. And an extremely beautiful one.
