Tumblr Thread: The Gentle Giants Of The Horse World

If there is one animal that we believe does not get enough love, it's horses. Yeah, everyone knows what horses are, but does everyone know that horses are majestic galloping creatures of beauty? Do they know that horses get spooked by affectionate goats with pool noodles on their horns? Do people really know anything about horses other than people sit on them? We don't think so, so we think that it's time to learn.

We shall start with the most majestic galloping enormous horses of them all: draft horses. They are huge and gorgeous, they are the gentle giants of the horse world, and they are truly whinnying at life. And now, they're about to get the appreciation that they deserve.

The tallest horse in the world is an American-type Belgian horse named Big Jake (I think???).'

Great Danes In Comparison To Normal Sized Things

Great Danes are so freakin' adorable because they don't realize just how big they are. They are huge with equally huge hearts and so they simply act as if they're small enough to sit on your lap. They aren't small enough and they won't fit, as hard as they try and boy, do they try! 

We have a great appreciation for these giant puppers, they are often the most gentle of dogs. Giant dogs do not understand their size just adds to their overall adorableness and their gentleness

A common misconception is that Great Danes are called that due to their size. In reality, they're called that because they're all great. 

Get yourself situated for these big ol' boofers!

Magical World Of Giant Animals By Artist Mono Kubo

Enter the magical world of Japanese artist, Mono Kubo! Mono Kubo, a talented artist who has re-imaged our world where humans are lost and regular-sized, but animals are giant creatures here to comfort us or provide us with some sort of path. Mono Kubo's message behind each one of these stunning and imaginative artworks is trying to tell the viewer that the best way to befriend and understand nature is to envision the roles reversed. We like to believe in a world such as the one Mono Kubo has created. A world where animals are larger than life and are our saviors, in one way or another. 

We have shared some of this artist's artwork before but below are some new ones (mixed with a bit of older items).

You can follow this incredible artist on Twitter or Tumblr! Truth us, you can get lost in this magical world (in the best way possible).

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Cocoa Puff, the giant rabbit

And when we say giant, we mean it. Cocoa Puff has over 340k followers of Instagram, making him not only a giant rabbit but a giant star. Cocoa Puff is what's known as a "Continental Giant," at the age of 2, Cocoa Puff weighed 18.5lbs.

And hilariously enough, when a fan online asked why they decided to name him Cocoa Puff, the answer was that Cocoa Puff's poops resembled the classic Cocoa Puffs cereal. 

Not sure we can look at Cocoa Puffs the same ever again! Thankfully, Cocoa Puff was litter box trained. He was also a cage-free animal. 

His owners sadly shared the news of his passing at the end of June.

A Creative Australian Built a Giant Laughing Kookaburra While In Quarantine

This Australian dad has really topped us all as far as creativity during self-isolation. 

While trying to stay productive, Dr. Farvardin Daliri has built a giant, laughing kookaburra in his own backyard.

The native bird, which measures a whopping 8.5 metres from beak to tail and stands at 4.5 metres tall was built for the Townsville Cultural Festival in Queensland, which he established 26 years ago. 

If you're wondering just how Dr Daliri constructed this incredible structure, he started working on it in February and used hundreds of steel round bars that were then melded and interlocked together, creating the shape of a kookaburra.

He also has a Master of Fine Arts, specializing in ceramics and sculpting, which helped him figure out the technical elements needed to make the sculpture.

He then took it out for a test drive and his daughter shared the video on twitter.

The Japanese Tradition of Rice Harvest Season Continues With Giant Animal Sculptures Made Of Straw

Autumn is the rice harvest season in Japan. Every year, farmers make sure that the leftover rice straw, known as "wara", does not go to waste. Japanese artist, Niigata, has found a very creative way of using these leftover rice husks by hosting an annual event called "Wara Art Festival". Ever since 2008, the straw has been used as a material to make giant sculptures exhibited at Uwasekigata Park. All of the monuments are handcrafted out of wooden rods that serve as the spine of the sculptures and dried straw molded on the frame. Each handicraft takes about a week to be completed.
