And we measured him right before one of my first rides on him. Where we were doing a lot of things, and HE IS SCARED OF THE MEASURING STICK. So he wouldnt stop moving. Its hard to get an exact reading when he's scared of it.

It get's better- don't go deleting your account. Trust me, the first time I ever posted was on someone else's thread and I felt the same way. I was like "wow I am SO glad everyone is so darn friendly around here!" All because I thought breeding Zebras and Horses together was silly. Oh well. Now I love the forum and I am addicted to it. I check it a few times a day if I can, and it's replaced my Facebook addiction!! Give it some time, you might realize that not everyone is out to get you! And I don't think anyone is trying to catch you in a lie, I think there are some people who are concerned that YOU'RE being lied to. That's all. No big deal really.

Like I said also, when I heard 20 hh, maybe my trainers were scepulating, and I understood them wrong, but also this Forum seems to be very unfriendly, and it feels like accusations, I'm 15 years old. Not some horse back riding professional. Though I want to be, I am not. I deal with this stuff in high school, and after my surgery a week ago, I thought being able to interact with other horseback riding people, I wouldnt be as depressed, but this had the opposite affect. Lil' John is what we call him, and he is a beautiful horse, I can tell you from the last time I remeber meauring him he was at least 19hh. But from there I can't state anymore facts. I wish I could give everyone more pictures of him, but I can't. I don't have anymore.

he's gorgeous. Don't get too upset. People can make unnessary coments, just ignore them. I don't know who said percherons don't get over 18hh, but my cousin has a 2 year old that is 17.2, string tests 18.2hh. And wasn't the tallest horse a 21hh percheron stallion?

Ok, I'm really sorry but THIS is why people get so suspicious. First you say your trainer is JUST putting you on him and now you claim you never get to see him anymore.

I'm sorry, but in the past when someone comes in with a professional looking show picture and outrageous claims, most of the time it ends up being a big lie. It would have been completely different if you posted a couple riding pics, but you just post a halter photo of a horse that clearly isn't anywhere near 20hh and state your trainer just got you to start riding a 3 year old Draft. Why?

It just doesn't make any sense, sorry. Nobody is trying to assume you're a liar, you just didn't give very much information and unfortunately, it's almost a stereotype around here with these circumstances involving people making things up.

This really is a forum of good people, they just tend to be suspicious due to past circumstances!

In that picture, I would geuss he's about 16 or 17 hands. That being said, I don't care if your trainers made a mistake or you made a mistake or even if you made up the height, the fact of the matter is, the responses you received were over the top. This forum is actually a welcoming and freindly place and we hope that you decide to make yourself a home here.

While I am not condoning the badgering that occurred in this thread, I feel the need to defend our members some. I would geusstimate about three times a week some fruitloop comes along and decides... I'm bored so I'm going to harrass the crazy horse people so they post off-the-wall threads just to get a rise.

I think some of our folks have become gun shy on that. They don't mean any harm and I promise, you are welcome in this comunity. In fact, everyone that has a love for horses is welcome here, even if you don't own a horse and have never ridden one. This forum was created for people to share their knowledge, experience, and to ask questions and to educate themselves...

Beautiful horse! <3 don't listen to them, just ignore them and focus on all the good comments towards your horse! Good luck with him!

You are not the horse height control on the forum.

She is relating her experience. Whether you agree with it or not, she does not have ease or cater to your suspicions. She has nothing to prove to you or anyone. Even if it is not an exact measurement, she is not out to "lie" to us. There is a difference.

Kay lets clear some things up. In this picture, it is meant to be of the horse, because this is the horse I now ride as of last September. That is not me holding him in the picture. I don't get to see him anymore because I had surgery, and the whether here in Michigan is very bipolar. I get to see him more in the Spring once I have recovered. I am not someone trying to get a rise out of people, Im a 15 year old girl that is in love with horses, and puts my all into riding them. They are my life, the only thing I live for. This horse is amazing and should be reconized as such, not the fact that I MIGHT HAVE BEEN WRONG. So I am admitting to the fact that I might have been wrong. Please stop accusing. If I could take this whole thread down, and just post the picture of him instead of the caption I would. That way people would stop judgning and accusing. But I can't so please ignore the caption now, this has gone on long enough don't you think?
