Tallest of 'em all

The World's Tallest Man, Leonid Stadnik, 36, a Ukrainian veterinarian, is 8'5.5" tall.

He needs to meet the World's Tallest Horse, Radar, a Belgian Draft who stands 6'7" tall and weighs 2,400 pounds.

They would certainly be a better match than the poor little Ukrainian horse good ole Leonid is bridling.

They sure do make shorties like myself feel extra small, a tad bit like one of the Munchkins from the Wizard of Oz!

I think I sat next to that guy the last time I flew coach.

Wow. He must have REALLY ate alot of veggies and "good-for-you" foods growing up. :-)

I would rather have the horse than the tall guy - what a beautiful horse.

Diesel...I think he was sitting in front of me the last time I went to the theater.

Lisa...I've often wondered why all the super-tall people are from countries on the other side of the planet. Do you think they just have better veggies?

Sona...he is a gorgeous animal and he looks like he has a great personality.I'd hate to try to keep up with his feed bill though!

Compare the bill to feeding that guy - I'd still take the horse!
