He must come from a mutant line of Perchies, then, because Percherons rarely exceed 18hh. Just sayin'.

And @Taffy Clayton- There is no such measurement as .5 when measuring in hands. .1, .2, or .3, yes. .4+, no.

Just wondering but the sire must ahve been HUGE, because the mare in the picture you posted in "new foal" is actaully not much of a huge mare considering when you take in the fence height next to her (id say she's not much taller than a 16 at a streach but then again going off one picture is hard to determine the height of a horse)... id say she must have been bred to smoething Very Big to produce the foal. How tall was the sire of that foal?

Good luck with him, he is adorable! I love his star!

Lovely horse, have fun with him!

We were simply being skeptical. I wouldn't call it criticism as much as being wary. Like others have stated his sire must have been HUGE. And also what added to our skepticism is the fact that she called her horse 19.5hh. It's nothing more than checking up on a puzzling situation :)

I'm sure she meant between 19 and 1/2 hands to 20 hands. People on this forum never fail to surprise and disappoint me.

To the OP, that is a gorgeous horse, good luck working with him! And welcome to the forum!

She could have simply put it as 19.0 1/2 to save confusion.

And you could have simply inquired if she meant 19 1/2 to clarify instead of doing what seemed like trying to catch her in a lie.
I was a little skeptical too, but it's not impossible.
