His stall is 20X20 feet when an average stall is about 12X12 feet… when we transport him we have to use a semi trailer.” Gilbert was quoted in the report.
“We are proud to hold the record and enjoy the people who visit the farm. We enjoy the reactions and when people leave our farm happy from the experience of seeing Jake.” Gilbert added, noting that the tallest horse is under a strict healthy diet, with a daily consumption of 1 1/2 bales of hay and 40 quarts of oats.
