Hello mamas and papas. This week I interviewed a woman who found a unique way to occupy her time while searching for a new career. She’s going for a world record!
The Texas woman was forced into early “retirement” in February and since then, she’s been on a frustrating job search.
Cheryl Davis says she needs something to look forward to everyday. She needs to keep her skills sharp. So, she’s set a “tall” goal for herself and her 13-year-old Clydesdale, Remington. She’s using her new “freedom” to fill out the exhausting and daunting piles of paperwork for the Guinness World Record for the World’s Tallest Living Horse.
This is a big horse y’all! I mean HUGEMONGO! Cheryl thinks her beloved “Remi” stands about 20 hands. That’s about 6 feet 8 inches for you non equestrians. Check him out. He’s like a Greyhound Bus.
Remington’s vet will measure him this Friday with his horse shoes on and again on Saturday with his shoes off. He’s gotta beat the current record of 19 hands. But Cheryl thinks he can do it.
I just love this woman’s attitude. She’s in a really tough spot. But she’s still finding the joy in her life. Sure it’s through a 3-thousand pound, lug of a horse, who manages to break whatever he doesn’t eat. But it’s still wonderful joy.
I’m going to cheer Cheryl and Remington on to victory! Hope you’ll join me.
Check out Remington’s blog and read more about his adventures. He’s a funny horse of course.
