Gypsy and Shaton





Gypsy is 25 yrs old
Shaton is almost 2yrs in this pic and he is about 13.3 hands is there any hope of him getting atleast 14.2 that is how tall gypsy is and I really didn't want a horse any smaller

You could try this! I asked around wondering about my baby and this was cool! We will see if it's right though...

You can do the string test. Take a string and hold it up to the top of the front leg. Then take that measurement and move it up so the bottom is at the top of the leg and the top of the measurement you just took is where the horses' whithers will be when they are full grown. At least I think that's how it works.

What a funny pic (1st one)! I'd love my horses would be like that to my dogs and cats, but... :( They are very unfriendly...

The best measurements I could find (at least it worked for me). Measure front leg from knee to the coronary band. If it's 15 inch - horse will be 15 hands, 14 inch - 14 hands etc. Better to do after they are 2 years old. I tried it on number of horses for interest (including mine) and it worked very precisely.

Somehow other test described didn't work for my paint. She has very long legs, so the test gave something like 16 hh. She's 15 though and not going to be any much bigger. :)
