An Orangeville, Illinois-based cow named Blosom has been posthumously awarded the Guinness World Record for “Tallest Cow”. The designation had been made earlier this year, months before the towering bovine sadly succumbed to a devastating leg injury on June 25th.
Guinness World Records today pays an emotional farewell and tribute to the adorable Blosom, who sadly passed away recently but will live on in the record books as the world’s tallest cow ever. …Guinness World Records Editor-in Chief, Craig Glenday, said: “We hold our tallest animals at Guinness World Records in an extremely high regard due to their uniqueness and rarity in finding. We were devastated when we heard the news of Blosom’s death as she was such a friendly and gorgeous animal and her owner equally as wonderful and took such great care of her. She is definitely one of the standout highlights in our upcoming book and we hope the world enjoys seeing the pictures of her.
