Noddy was a normal height when he was born and a normal height as a weanling. That is where Noddy stops being normal. He just kept growing and growing. Now Nodram stands 20.2 hands. Nodram was bred and born at the Shires of Luscombe in Queenlsand.

 Noddy left home as a 6 month old weanling to go and live with Jane in Victoria. He was 15 hands, the usual size for our weanlings. Jane however was not expecitng such a big 'foal', even though she wanted a Shire that was grey and that would grow to be a big horse. Little did she know she would end up with the Worlds Tallest Horse.

Nodram and his half brother Luscombe Grey Spark are the only two grey shire geldings in Australia. Now Nodram enjoys spending his days with his best mate Nash the Suffolk Punch (one of only 7 in Australia).
