Well, I've done the two different string tests and both came out to 16.3. Do either of you know how accurate those tests are?
I don't feel a need, necessarily, for a tall horse. I just prefer them. The lowest height that I personally like is 15.3 which is how tall my older horse is. I just try to avoid looking awkward on small horses in addition to the fact that I just like 15.3+ hand horses. I like their longer strides and all.
I feel like my horse will reach past 16 hands at least, but I wasn't sure because she really hasn't grown in height for about 5-6 months or so. She's been thickening though.
So, from both of your experiences, do you think that each horse just grows differently based on breeds they're crossed with and gender? Like I said, I'm just curious. I'm nosey and want to know if I'm going to need a parachute when I ride her one day. Oh and here's just a couple pictures of her :)
The second picture is of her standing next to my 15.3 QH gelding.
