Jerry Gilbert of Smokey Hollow Farm, rural Poynette, is submitting his Belgian horse, Big Jake, to the Guiness Book of World Records in an attempt to be recognized as the world’s tallest living horse. In the photos below, Big Jake is pictured with Jerry at the measurement. Big Jake unofficially measured 20 hands 2.75 inches or 82.75 inches from the bottom of his left front hoof along a line from just behind that leg to the top of his shoulder.  If certified by Guiness, Big Jake would beat the record by some 2.5 inches.
