Say hello to Rasputin, the Walliser black-necked goat who has entered Guinness World Records 2017 Edition for having the Largest horn spread – goat (living).
He was bought by owner Martin Pirker five years ago, when his horns were still very small.
Since then, Rasputin's horns have had a massive growth spurt and now measure a magnificent 135.2 cm (53.23 in) in length!
Rasputin currently lives in Lienz, Tyrol in Austria with his ‘wife’ Lily and their son Lucky, fellow black-necked goats.
Martin named his record-breaking goat after Grigori Rasputin (1869–1916) – the mystical advisor to Russia’s Czar Nicholas II, famed for his piercing stare and distinctive long, black beard.
Rasputin is featured in the Guinness World Records 2017 Edition alongside loads of wonderful record-breaking animals.
