    Brooklyn Supreme was the worlds biggest in 1930.



    Belgian draft horse Brooklyn Supreme of the 1930s stood
    19.2 hands high, weighed 3,200 pounds, measured 10' 2" around,
    took a 40" collar, and required 30" of iron to make one shoe.
    (courtesy of Jim Richendollar, Draft Horse Archives) .

    I don't know who these ball player's are I found this pic on the net.

    Hope you enjoy

    It would be a lot worse to quit paying the feed bill.That would mean that you had to dig a hole big enough to bury him.Digging the hole for one normal size horse and one pony was enough for me.My kids had to have a state funeral for that pony.I surly don;t want anything like that to die on me.peewee-williams

    That's one big horse. I'd hate to have him mad at me.

    Can you imagine if he was saddle trained. He is the definition of stud horse.

    actually the Belgium draft horses are easily broke to a saddle.. had the opportunity to break and train one when i worked for a public riding stable years n years ago and he was a horse we let kids and over sized ppl ride and we new they would be safe.but ty ace for reminding me of part of my past...
