Melbourne, Mar 3 (ANI): Britain's tallest horse is being trained to be a Drum Horse so that he can participate in the Queen's Diamond Jubliee celebrations in June.
The giant Clydesdale is receiving the training from the Household Cavalry in Hyde Park Barracks.
The 145-stone Digger With his head held up, measures close to 9ft.
The eight-year-old male eats up to four stones of food per day and guzzles 25 gallons of water.
Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment officer Alex Owen said Digger is progressing well.
"He is very docile and well behaved," the Daily Telegraph quoted Owen as saying.
"It is hoped he will be able to take part in the Jubilee celebrations, however, he needs to put on more weight to be able to carry the silver drums," he said.
It takes 18 months to train a Drum Horse and once they pass out they will be given the name of a Greek God. (ANI)
