This )
is Mikey, he's a 7-year-old Percheron who we got to drive at work today (he's a bit of a freak but very sweet, and apparently camera-shy-- I could not get him to look at me for a picture!). My boss said he's 18.3 hh, but I think he's actually a little taller than that. Anyway, I'm fairly certain he's THE biggest horse I've ever worked with, and I've worked with a lot of big horses, which is silly since I'm 4'11 3/4". Anyway, we're out there at the carriage stand today, and this guy walks up who had to have been 7-and-a-half feet tall. See him compared to Mikey here )
The guy whose head you can barely see between Mikey and The Very Tall Man is my boss, who is over 6 feet tall. I could not stop staring. This guy could look down on the top of Mikey's head whereas when I stand next to him I'm eye-level with Mikey's chest!!!
Adam with Mikey for comparison )
It's probably terrible that I was snapping all these photos of this guy, who probably gets gawked at all the time, but I thought it was so crazy that I was just remarking to Adam that Mikey is the biggest horse I've ever really been around, and then up walks this guy who could put his chin on the horse's poll.

Also, Ayla Brown, that chick from American Idol, walked by the carriage stand today too. I didn't get any cell phone pictures of her. lol
