I have a friend that has repeatedly tried to sell a horse, which is actually a pretty good horse at a decent price. Actually thats how we met me looking at the horse. Lots of people have come look but noone buys and she doestn understand. She insists that it is 15.3, when it is onlly 14.2. I keep telling her you are getting big guys like me coming to look and then leaving when they see how short the horse is. And the people that want a 14.2 hand horse arnt coming to look because you are advertising it at 15.3.
"well the vet said......."
well I know this vet. shes a real pistol at barely 5 feet. Anything but a mini looks "about 16" to her.

Hi Everyone!!
First of all: THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! to all of you for taking the time to fill in the questionnaire/s!
And second of all, sorry i've not been back since my first post...life's just been a bit hectic!
Sorry about the lb / kg difficulty! It didnt even cross my mind, if get a change I will post the conversions, but thank you so much for those of you you made the effort anyway! :)
I promise I will post the answers on here once I have collected all the data. Just so i can make sure the secret stays with me for now to avoid any cheating ;)

Once again...Thank you all so so so so much!!

Right....here's what you have all been waiting for!
I've put the actual weight and then what % majority answer was and if anyone guessed the right weight. A lot of you were in the right area so I'm very impressed! Once again, Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my surveys!! Especially as it was in kilograms!!

Part 1 had one horse at the end, his weight was 593kg on a weighbridge (500-599 was majority response at 56% few guessed 590kg! well done!)

Part 2
Horse 2 was 514kg (500-599 was average response 63%, few specifically guessed 510/520-well done!)

Horse 3 was 726kg (700-799 35%, 600-699 32% couple guesses were 720! well done!)

Horse 4 was 730kg (600-699 59%, actually had a 725 and a 730 guess!! WELL DONE!!)

Horse 5 was 510kg (400-499 70%, one person guessed 510! WELL DONE!)

Now the pictures are down. I totally forgot what my guesses were. Can you repost the pictures?
