World's tallest horse- an Arabian!

I'm a carriage driver in downtown San Antonio, and of course almost everybody that I meet is an expert on horses. Last night, a girl came down to the stand and started talking to me about her horses. She said that she has a 27hh Arabian! No, that's not a typo; she actually said 27hh.

As soon as she said that, I started ignoring her, but another lady told her that there's no way that her Arabian was 27hh, because the world's tallest horse is only 20somethinghh, but she wouldn't listen.

What other crazy things have you heard people say about their horses?

27hands. Well, I'd have to see that to believe it. ;)

FUNNIEST thing I ever heard, and this was actually at a trainer I was working with..

She was showing this mare, and seemed off during the warm up, so she got an Equine Massage Therapist out (no offenece to any EMT - love that career choice) to get to relax and check for sore spots.

So, she gets in the ring for the show and the horse - keep in mind this is a seasoned show horse and regional winner already, no spring chicken - isn't behaving properly... worse now than she was during the warm up.

So, after her ride, she phones this EMT back and tells her what happened to this mare.

The lady then says "Hold on a minute" makes her stay on the line for a minute or so and says "Okay, your horse is fine now to show in her next class."

So the trainer, obviously, is a little confused as the EMT is driving down the road and nowhere near the horse, and asks her how she knows this.

"Well," the lady goes, "I just spoke with her telepathicly, and she told me so!"

Uh huh....

LOL

Hey don't discount animal communicators. There are some really good ones out there. Sure they seem kooky. But some really do have that gift.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

whoa 27 hh I would have to see that to belive it and that would be one of those times I would be delighted to be proved wrong
Can you imagine riding a horse that big?!thats one of those times when the rider has more time to think about her/his landing lol

Our horses know our secrets; we braid our tears into their manes and whisper our hopes into their ears.

My thoughts exactly.
I'm sure that there are people who can communicate very well with animals on a higher level than the average person, but not over a phone 40 kilometers away.
I just can't believe that one.

But if it was face to face id have no problem with it.
