Thank you for such an amazing tutorial! I have a question, I have a friesian and it's a bit funny with their withers. How do I find the top of the withers for example on this horse?



A friesian cross, another example



Thank you for your answer. I've always wanted to measure my horse but never knew where exactly to do it (where to put the tape).

I can't find anything on my computer to measure with. Ideas? I'm using the pre-downloaded Paint program on my computer

I'll give this a try!

Not the best confirmation photo, but it was the only side-shot I could find on this computer.

I'd say you can just create one out of a piece of paper, a pencil, a ribbon or something like that. Make marks there that would represent centimetres (or other unit, doesn't matter how far away from each other they are as long as they are all the same far away from each other, if you know what I mean, you can use... have no clue... pen cap or some other small object to measure where to make the next mark) as the actual measurement doesn't matter (as long as you're using one and the same measuring means for the whole process), the thing that matters is the relation between the final measurements (numbers). At least that's what I understood. I hope I expressed myself well and you can understand what I wanted to say.

But then again I think searching for the real ruler would probably be easier

You'll want to follow the slope of the scapula and use the "tallest" point of it. It'll be close enough.

Equiniphile, you'll want to move your LS dot back, just a little. Use the freeware program "BitRuler". I think it also does angles... I've never used that part of it before, but if it does, yippee!

To the others - that's great!... now... what are you "seeing" when you look at your new, doodled, horse?

Yup... that's right. It really doesn't matter which "form" of measurement you use for the lengths, it's all about relation to each other.
