Zeus’s owner Denise Doorlag from Michigan said most people often asked that “Hey do you have a saddle for that horse?” or “Is that a dog or is that a pony?” and she added further it’s fun to see people’s reactions, especially little kids that they think that he really is a horse. Also she said that their family was grateful by their pet’s place in the Guinness Book of World Records, launched on September 13, 2012.

There’s no doubt that we all have a same question to ask from her, how she can do her day to day work with these long fingernails. Chris gave a nice reply for this question when in an interview with New York Daily news. She said “It’s kind of like a body part I was born with and now I don’t know what I would do without them”.

 


Also she claims that that the nails do not create an inconvenience and that she can cook, clean, drive and wash with ease with 5 children at home. She even text using her knuckles and even play the piano and use the computer with the nails. The only problem she has encountered is that she has to adjust her clothing to get her nails. Further she said that she didn't grow her nails deliberately to set a Guinness record because she liked the way nails looked the day she stopped cutting her nails and let they just kept growing. She lost a nail once, when fixing her car engine on the freeway, and otherwise has no trouble leading a normal life.
