No bull: Archie takes record as world's shortest

275x250.jpg If you think all bulls are big ferocious beasts, think again and meet Archie, the world's shortest bull who measures just 76.2 cm (30 in) from hoof to withers.

The 29-month-old Dexter from County Antrim, Northern Ireland, has been recognised as the Shortest Bull in the world and features in Guinness World Records 2013.

He measures just 76.2 cm (30 in) from the hoof to the withers, 15 inches shorter than other bulls of his breed (typically 45 in).  His height means that he’s dwarfed by the other animals at his farm, including even the dogs and goats!

Archie may be small, but that hasn’t diminished his “bullish” temperament! Ryan explains: “Archie doesn’t realise that he’s so short. He thinks he’s the biggest in the herd and he’ll grunt and roar at the rest of them.
"He’s generally ok around the other farm animals like horses and goats, but if something agitates him, he’ll go for them – and even though he’s little, at 155 kg it can hurt."
