Interesting. Height became a problem for me very recently. I am close to 5'3", DH and siblings are much taller - bully for them.
I have always far prefered
14 hh, +/- 2", horses. No real reason.
Yesterday, I chance happened to meet a horse that is 16 hh, maybe a smidge taller. I was wildly attracted to him, which shocked
me. It turns out he is for sale. I wish he were not
b/c it complicates it for me. I had a very strange experience with him. I do not make a habit, trust me
, of hugging other's horses - ever. Yet, I just walked up to him in his corral, put my head on his tall shoulder, and hugged him, in an "unwitting" state of mind, which is the only way I can describe it. Crazy!! Who
does that? He "hugged" me back. And it felt so wonderful! Perhaps I hugged him b/c I temporarily lost all of control of my faculties due to the recent loss of my gelding. So, I am left fighting my desire to go see him again - I tell myself he is just too big, my thinking is impaired, etc.,.
Then this thread about height pops up. Hmmm.
