    I didn't have a handy box to stand on to get decent back shots, it's ;ot harder with him than a 14 hh Haffy

    Sorry I don't understand this? The girth isn't snugged up riding tight, so how does the length alter the fit?

    Now there is a question, he was supposed to be 16.2hh, then she said they had measured him and he was 17hh. I put my home made stick on him and couldn't get him any bigger than 16.2hh, unless you measure him a little way up his neck, he gets a lot taller a lot quicker when that head goes up

    Here he is with 6'4"of John

    And 5'9"of me
