I've never actually personally measured myself, an old trainer of mine way back told me Lily was 14.3hh. Just took it & ran. She could be a bit smaller - sounds about right though.

And she's solid. Thick mare, sturdy legs. Polish bred.

My 27 yr old Polish/Crabbett-bred Arab is 13.3H.

Before the Arab market crashed in 1987, his half sister sold for a record 2.55 million dollars in 1984. I only recently discovered that. They share the same sire. Nh Love Potion Arabian . Streeter is a lot more Arab Royalty than I thought he was:)

Many years ago I had a Lippet Morgan/Egyptian Arab Cross that was right at 14H.

My sincere apologies to the new model Arabs that are tall but I do not prefer them. I want to see the shorter ones with heavy bone and big hooves.

My little Arab has gorgeous gorgeous big hooves - it's just too bad he had a vertebra injury, when I rescued him 20+ years ago, that would affect him the rest of his life.

I took this of "WallStreeter" a few weeks back. He turned 27 this past April. He's slowly losing muscle, something he never had much of to begin with but his little self is still second-in-command with three big Walking Horses.

She looks like she has some nice sized feet too

Many years ago it seemed that 15 hands was a HUGE Arabian and there were more that were under that they that size. Very rare 15.1- 15.2 hand Arabian would show up but again, that was very very rare. Now days I am seeing more and more that are in the 15.2- 15.3 range and even a few 16 hand Arabs, not many of those though.

If they had been taller, they would have likely been my number one favorite breed but I ended up with Saddlebreds for their height. Arabs are still on my top 5 favorite breed list.

Mine is 16.0 without his shoes, so he's closer to (but not at) 16.1 with them.

Yes, he's purebred.



(There is no explaining this pose. I don't even know; he must have been cantering on the wrong lead.
