Eve was 15.2-15.3hh as a 4 year old Clyde/TB

Dove is 15hh-ish 14 year old Mustang/Appy

Cinder is 14.2hh 21 year old stock horse/Arab mare, retired since 2009

Justus is my 14hh Welsh Pony X Mustang/Appy

I always feel grossly ginormous for my mare. It makes me sad. :( She is 15.1hands, and I am 5'9" and usually about 165lbs. I've recently taken to walking mostly and pulling the beast along behind me because I feel so guilty. Lol

Honestly, I've never sticked or seriously measured Aires. I figure out where his withers hit me and then figure the difference between my height (5'7" or 67") and where his withers are. It helps that my friend's arab gelding was sticked at just shy of 16hh a few weeks ago and Aires is definitely taller than he is, so I know my guessing is pretty accurate.
