STAFF at the farm where the country's largest Shire horse lives have welcomed another super-sized horse into the world.
The foal, named Deity, was born at Green Farm, Caverswall, standing tall at a huge 12 hands, or 48 inches. Staff believe the horse will soon match the heights of award-winning Sovereign, who is 82 inches tall.
Deity's owner, Paul Evans, said: "Deity's dad is a Shire horse called Locksley Topsman who has just been awarded super-premium status, so we are hoping he will follow in dad's footsteps.
"In the meantime, Deity will join the rest of his family pulling carts for my wedding business." Left, Paul is seen with, from the left, Sovereign, Deity, and his mum Poppy. Above, the new foal.
