I am going to pick on you for a second. Do you mean that he is 16.1 hands? There is four inches in a hand, so it goes 15 - 15.1 - 15.2 - 15.3 - 16

Sorry its one of my pet peeves.

This is my Appendix mare, Annie. Registered Name: Devils Walker. Out of Mr. Three Devils and Alice Walker. You can find her on Allbreedpedigree.com

She's bay, 15.2hh, and a total spitfire :)

She's my new hunter jumper/cutting horse. I needed a horse with talent that I could throw my jumping saddle on, and she was nominated. Alhough I definitely prefer my working cow.

She came from a runnign quarter horse breeder, and I know she's been entered in several races but I can't find any records that say she's actually been run...-shrug-

Um no 15.5 as in 15 and a half as in 15h and 2 in. Guess it depends where your from but he's 15 and a half. Sorry but it's a pet peeve of mine when people try to correct the technically not incorrect.

I must apologize for that last comment. I did not mean it to come out as witchy as it sounded. I guess I'm just having a bad day. So really no offense meant by that. Sorry!!

Hmm, I have always been told by many people that that is incorrect. Mathematically it make sense, but as far as using the proper horse terms I have always been told and seen many people use the method that I described.

It may have to do with the area that you are from though.

Foal
Qhdragon said that her appendix didn't have much TB blood in it.
In the quarter horse registry (AQHA) an appendix horse is 1/2 TB. The sire or dam is full TB, and unless the appendix horse is not upgraded to full QH status by winning a register of merit in some AQHA event, the next offspring does not get regular papers either. Don't know how far this goes before the papers change back.
This is one of the things (only one mind you) that makes me mad with the AQHA. It's only done by race breeders and it continues to dilute the old quarter horse bloodlines. While I say that and mean it too, I will state for the record that I look for, and like three bars, easy jet, and leo in my horses pedigrees. Three bars was a TB, easy jet had a TB mom, and leo had a TB dad. Still these horses produced usein' horses. That is to say they have good minds and are athletic.
Still, i'm against the continued allowance of TBs in QH breeding. It's only allowed because the AQHA makes money from the practice.

Even though mine is a gelding this is really interested info to know. Everytime someone asks me what my horse is I say Appendix Qtr horse and they ALWAYS say, what's an appendix? I just learned from his registration papers that it's half tb and half qtr but these other details are very good to know thanks!

You would like Malibu's lines then. Kip N Easy Quarter Horse

I have to agree with you though, I like my QHs to look like big ole tanks, not these tall leggy horses that look like Thoroughbreds. To me that's no longer a QH, but a Thoroughbred cross.

Lucky of Malibu I fell in love with her personality, not her looks.

Janasse- it looks like your horse is parking. Hehe

I always call a horse an appendix if they are tb and qh, even if only a little bit one or the other.

I used to tell everyone my first horse was 17 and a half hands (17.5) It can get a little confusing if you use the decimil point. Most people just assume you don't know what you're talking about. But it does make sence mathematically.
