Arthur and Field Marshall by contains-mild-peril Arthur and Field Marshall by contains-mild-peril
I was going through some old photos earlier and came across this from December 2009.

It's farmer Arthur Duckett and his bull Field Marshall which, at the time, weighed 1650Kg. Arthur claims he is the largest bull in the world. Field Marshall stands at 6ft tall - and that's 6ft measured to his shoulder, so with his head held up he's much taller.

There is an entire breed that reaches 6' easy, so I doubt this is the tallest breed in the world. Great photo, though, this is a massive cow regardless!

I think the farmer was smart to start this bull to be not so aggressive at an early age.

Wonderful shot, instantly eye-catching. Reminds me of all those old 17C paintings of huge horses and bulls that you often see in galleries and stately homes.

In one of my classes we learned about the Auroch, the giant cattle-like animal that may have been present day cattle's ancestor, and I've been trying to ger an idea for how big those things were, and apparently this bull is about the right size! Pretty amazing. :D
