I am constantly amazed by people who should "have a clue" about measurement and don't.
I have given up on believing what sellers say their horse's height is because it usually isn't anywhere near accurate. My last 15.2 hand horse is really 14.3...which is just fine for me.
I figure if the horse has most of the qualities I'm looking for I will go look.
In all my years with Arabians I have only seen one 16 hander. He was beautiful and he was huge. And I am not talking about including Arab crosses in this...just purebreds.
