A Tennessee Shire horse may be the tallest horse in the world.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press is reporting that at an official measuring today, Jenson Diplomat Tina — known as Tina — measured 20 hands tall.

The current Guinness World Record holder is a Belgian draft horse named Radar. According to Radar’s Web site, he is about 79 and a half inches, that is more than 19 hands tall, but not quite 20.

Horses are measured along the front leg to the top of the shoulder.

Nearly 300 horse fans turned out to see Tina measured at her stable about 65 miles northeast of Chattanooga.

When her height was announced the crowd erupted in applause.

The documentation of her height will be sent to Guinness, based in London.
