Anyone bar rhosroyalvelvet?

Just posting this again:
I heard light boned hovering around in this thread, can't remember who said it, but may I ask a question?
Well Diddly has 8 eight inch bone (20.32 cm) and he is 16.1hh at the wither (high wither though) He is 3/4 TB, 1/4 Irish Draught. He is 15.3hh in the middle of his back.
Would he be considered light boned then?

Bone diameter to height is part of it, but also to me is bone diameter to the build. A slim built 16.2 hand grey-hound like TB can look more in proportion than a 14.3 hand super stocky and built like a tank QH with the same bone diameter. I would prefer for him to have more bone, but I don't consider him light boned, personally. Also in the long run, bone density is more important than diameter, however that can't be told by just looking at him.

Maybe this picture. All the good ones seem to be tiny for no apparent reason!
Had to re size a little.

Front leg.
