    15.2 I think. Getting her to stand still on level ground for a measurement is more trouble than it is worth. Our 3/4 Arabian / 1/4 Appy is about 14.3. The Arabian mare we sold was 14.2, I think. I would have kept her and sold the Appy, but the women all voted me down.

    I don't have an arab and never have, but I like smaller horses - so those arabs that are around 14hh always appear to be the most beautiful arabs in this beholder's eyes.

    Missy May you make it down to Texas with a horse trailer and I will ensure you own an arabian. I have 3 foals that will make excellent horses. Shalom

    The Arabian I owned topped out at about 14.2, her sister is 15.1. That being said, where I used to board, all the Arabians that one Arab trainer had were 16h or over, and I always thought that was weird and not to breed standard. She said once that anything smaller than 16h wouldn't place in the shows. She did have two supposedly purebred Arabians (never asked to look at papers) that were a true 17h. At the breeding farm where I got my Arabian, all the Arabs were 15.2ish and under.

    Once they go significantly over 15.2, they lose overall type, IMO.
    Plus, a smaller horse is MUCH handier

    This one was 15.3
    When he got excited, he turned into a fire breathing 7 foot tall dragon....on a completely lose lead. And NEVER without a reason.

    How sweet, db, I would be headed your way tomorrow if I wasn't sure that if I showed up back home w another horse...even one as beautiful as I am sure yours are.... DH would put me out to live w my horses ...permanently. I just can't do w/o little luxuries in life, like my bathroom. Not to mention, my princess of an appyX might actually get so angry at the sight of yet another intruder she'd kick me out, too!

    LOL, that's called "being measured with the Arabian stick.", it's got an extra hand on it somewhere.
