Brooklyn Supreme a Belgian Draft stallion foaled in 1928 measured 19.2 hands and weighed 3,200 pounds. “Brookie” wore a 40-inch collar and boasted a girth measurement of 10 feet, 2 inches around. It took 30 inches of iron for each of his horseshoes.
a most absolute and excellent horse
Want to ride him? Can you do the splits?
Wiki says the tallest horse ever was Sampson, at 21.2½ hands high. (Although why they didn’t write it as 21.25 is confusing to me.)

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.
Is this true?
Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.
Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST
