Smallest bull in the world makes Guinness Book of World Records
Armagh bull, now a pet, just never measured up to proper size
Archie from County Armagh, a Dexter breed bull, will be named in the upcoming Guinness Book of World Records for being the smallest bull in the world.
The Press Association reports that 29-month-old Archie measures just 30 inches from hoof to withers, making him the smallest bull in the world.
Ryan Lavery, son of the farmer who owns Archie, bought Archie when he was only five months old. Lavery admits that Archie’s short height indeed saved his life.
“When we bought Archie, he was destined for beef. However, by Christmas time, he still hadn’t grown and because we had become so fond of him we decided to keep him.”
“His size saved his life and now he's going to live out the rest of his life as a pet,” said Lavery. “It's brilliant and amazing to have Archie in the new Guinness Worlds book.”
The 57th edition of the famous records book will see other outstanding records, including the world’s tallest dog, a Great Dane named Zeus who stands at 7’4 on his hind legs; the world’s oldest gymnast, 86-year-old Johanna Quaas from Germany; and the lowest roadworthy car, made in Japan and standing just under 18 inches.
Being published in 22 languages in more than 100 countries, the 2013 Guinness World Records is expected to sell around 2.7 million copies and documents numerous new extremes.
