Digger Eats His Way to World's Biggest Horse

DiggerMounting this Trojan steed is a tall order for any rider - at 19 hands (6ft 5 ins) high, Digger is believed to be Britain's biggest living horse.

The Clydesdale is hoping to make it into the record books despite being only four years old and still having some growing to do.

If he keeps growing as expected he could soon be a contender for the title of the world's largest horse.

The floppy-fringed shire horse was an orphan and did not have the best of starts to life.

But despite being hand-reared, Digger has grown strong and healthy, weighing 900 kilos and eating three times more than an ordinary horse.

Digger drinks between 20-25 gallons of water a day and needs to be transported in a specialised lorry.
