You do shrink through the day, and also over the years, I was totally horrified to find that my 5' 9" 55 year old body measured in at a tad under 5' 8" when I was measured in hospital for my recent OP,

Wicked nag:
1) you are the one that broght spelling into it - incredibly uncouth and uncalled for.
2) what exactly do you think is wrong with the spelling of Spelt?

3) I happen to be dyslexic so I do not find anything funny about making cracks about my spelling. You and people like you are the reason that I have had several good friends attempt suicide whilst still small children.

I don't see how this thread plummetted to the depths of arguing over spelling mistakes - sorry but that is just petty IMO
I often have way more letters in a word than intended and miss letters out or put the wrong ones in - so shoot me please
The OP knows she messed up, she doesn't need telling
Our Irish Draft is as high on her butt and as long as our warmblood but she is 3 inches smaller because she has low withers and the warmblood has quite high ones
Taking it home was not the right thing to do but if the sellers were licenced dealers then they should be covered by some sort of trades descriptions act that means if they advertise a horse as something then that's what it should be, which includes the height
OP needs to see a legal person who has experience in this sort of thing
Apologise for any spelling errors and differences in UK to US translation - also for being sarcastic

Wickednag - I could tell you 5 regularly used tricks that can make a horse measure 3 inches smaller then it actualy is. None of them are pleasent for the horse, some of them are downright cruel.

We have official measuring over here and you can have a horse recalled for measuring if you are willing to put up the money. It is amazing how much bigger horses are mid show season as opposed to in january when they are unfit, skeletal, have been lunged into the ground, had their feet hacked back so that they are lame and then buted up to hide it, oh and lets not forget the sedatives and withdrawl of water for 24hrs.
I think the record is well over a hand different when a horse has been objected to and recalled for measurement

Well it certainly did take a wrong turn. I was seriously joking with her when she asked if I realized I shrunk an inch every day and I asked if she realized she misspelled a word.

I better take leave of this thread. Again... I will state... know your own height in hands and you will better be able to guess the height of a horse much more accurately. I don't think anyone should be off on their horse's height by 3" or 7.6 cms.

Faye, I know of the tricks that people use to get the height of a horse. My best friend shows mini horses at a national level and those that want those minis short do lots of drastic things to keep them under 34". It is very sad. I don't think the horse advertised at 15.3 was a horse that would be subjected to that. My whole point of this thread was that I would never have loaded this horse if I was that worried about the height and I think 3" is to much to be off in advertising.

Have a great day. I seriously didn't mean to offend you....

Check out the terms of purchasing and 'holding' a horse on deposit from this company - as it looks to me as if they insist on a PPE before they agree to hold a horse so in this OP's case they either broke their own rules or something is not 'right' here

Unless the horse was sold by a private party and was boarded here, I have a hard time believing they would do a sale without a contract. 'Nuther one of those little things in life that make you go......"HUMMMMMMMMMM".
