OK, if 1 hand equals 4" then my OTStd who is supposedly 17.3hh is either 5' 11" or 5' 9" depending on the value of the .3 part. Funny though, I don't get that when I measure him by inches.
So, first question is .3 equal to 3 inches or 3/10 of a hand? I say 3/10 of a hand, but someone else told me 3 inches.
Second question -- why is it when I measure both my horses with a hand measuring tape/ruler I get more than I do with an inch tape?
