    I understood it to mean that the horse was somewhere between 15.2 and 16 hands.

    Me to but there is no 15.5 is what she meant. 15.0, 15.1, 15.2, 15.3, 16.0

    I thought you were meaning like 15 and a half an inch. Does that make since

    OK. I'll try to explain. Some people and in some countries, a person might say their child is 15.5, meaning their child is 15 and a half years old. When describing the height of a horse, it is put in much the same way. 15.5 means 15.2 hands. The point 2 meaning inches - as in half a hand. We see it put many times on forums such as this.

    I see now, thanks for clearing it up. It has always been a pet peeve of mine when people used that, but now I may understand why they do

    Well explained Lizzie, it always makes me wince when I see 15.5hh but then I translate in my head and all is good.

    I am still wondering what the 15.7hh I saw advertised the other day actually measured.

    That's a new one on me, GH. Probably 15 hands and seven tenths. Unless of course they really were idiots and didn't know how many inches are in a hand.


    milly :)
