I doubt sonny is 16.1hh, I am about 5'9 and "T" the horse I use to ride was 16hh and her withers is about up to my eye line. So if your 5'2 and the withers are near your eye line then I highly doubt he is 16.1hh

I love my horse. She is the wind beneath my wings.

I agree with the 15.2hh. I only use the paper tape measures. I can't believe how you could be four inches off.

WHATS REALITY?

Most registered Paints do
