I guess I could have. But I guess it's simply my nature to attempt to bluff her into it instead of ask. Raised in a family of cops. I apologize =)

If someone writes 19.5 hands. I take it to mean 19 hands plus a half hand.

Not to get at you, but it is a new member and all. Sometimes we all seem so rude! Haha. Fair enough! Also if someone legitimently meant 19.5 hh, it would translate into 20.1, not 22.
Just trying to keep it friendly on here!

Yes, that's usually the case!

I guess if you're thinking about it like that. Some other people who are not used to that thought it was 19 hands and 5 inches. I guess somebody should have asked for clarification on that. But no one did. It's over it's done and at least three people have made that point. We need to move on =)

So... he is only 3 years old, and already 20hh? That is... amazing to say the least. Amazing, and... strange. He is stunning! Whats his **** and sire's name?

E v e r y horse is good for something. You dont throw a whole life away just cause he's banged up a little...

Good grief, what does it matter? 3 yo, 19hh, 20hh, that foal, a different foal, why is this worth 3 pages of comments? Nice impression that is being given off for the forum, there, guys.

It's a good looking horse! I'd be proud to ride such a beauty! I'm wondering if it's a characteristic of Percherons to be a bit hot, even though they're considered "cold" - all of the warmblood Percheron crosses I've met have been pretty temperamental. And gorgeous, every one of them....

to everyone questioning me, and deciding that im 'lying' I know for a fact he is over 19 hh. Sorry for using wrong terminology. Didnt mean to offend ya'll. I was posting what my trainers told me, I don't know all the horse termiology. So please, if you have critizism and are really being THAAT opinionated, and are trying your hardest to catch me in a lie, im not lying. So give up. To those of you that are wishing me luck, thank you and thank you for not critizizing.
