    You DO shrink throughout each day whether you notice or not. I frequently will get into my car at the end of the day and realize my mirrors all need to be adjusted.

    OP- You're SOL. Sorry.

    You could ask for some money back, because he wasn't what he was said to be. Anyone with a buisness, would try and make it right. Otherwise bad words can make a buisness go down hill very fast.
    The worst they can say is no..

    While I agree the customer is always right, it's not like the horse shrunk on the journey home, the buyer accepted the horse on the visual check, so I wouldn't be refunding, especially as the horse had left the premises.

    Seeing as in this case the horse was bought sight unseen and without contract, the original owner would then be agreeing to buyback, and personally I would want to carry out a PPE, and assess the horse before buying it back, who knows the real reason why the buyer now has remorse.

    Specific height never mattered to me. If I saw a horse and it looked about the height I would be comfortable on, I'd buy it.

    Horses come in 3 different confirmed heights for me:
    Small
    Medium
    Large

    That's about as accurate as you're going to get. The numbers (14hh, 15hh, 16hh) are based on what the horse averages out. The specific inches are just details, in my opinion. But of course, I don't show in height classes. If a horse's wither came up to my collarbone or under, it was short. From collarbone to forehead level was medium. Above my head, tall.

    Of course, I did do some advertising and sales at a barn this past year where the height had to be put in the ad. I would use phrases like "About 15.2 hands" or "approximately 13.1 hands". We would measure the horse, use what we measured as a guideline in the ads, and have our stick ready for the buyers who came in to look at the horse. If they wanted to measure the horse themselves, we would allow it.

    But heigts and opinions on heights change depending on whether the rain falls over the plains in Spain, so I always took a horse's "official" height with a grain of salt.

    I've never measured our horse, but her height on her coggins is 15.2. Someone at the barn with a horse about 2 inches taller told me his horse was listed as 15.2. *shrug*. It doesn't really matter to us...but someday I really should measure her.
