LOVE this one...

I have a mare that looks to be part TWH. (but not sure). She is around 14 years old & about 15 hh. We was told that she was broke but had not been rode in 8+ years. However we never tried to ride her so are selling her as unbroke. She isn't wild, she is pretty gentle. We don't have the time to mess with her & she has buddied up with the horses that we ride so she has to go ASAP. Will sell her for $150 or trade for a wii. (would consdier trading for something else as well) Email or call/text 270-eight93-2nine8seven for pics/qustions

She is not ready for a child to ride but my son does everything with her and he is 12 years old. I just don't have the grass to keep her, we have to many horses and trying to down size. If you would like more information or want to come and see her call 859-585-4092

If they know that why didn't they just measure her?? Actually, how do they now that?
They are probably guestimating her height based on their height. If you know how tall you are in inches and can estimate how tall your horse is in inches, you can figure out pretty close how tall your horse is in hands. It's relatively easy.

For example: I was able to drape my arm over my old gelding's back. My arm was not above shoulder level when draped over his back. I am 5'7" (or 67") and my armpit is approximately 55" off the ground. Using these measurements, I guestimated that my old gelding was around 14.1-14.2hh (56-57"). Turns out we sticked him right at 14.2hh (57").

Another example: We had a holsteiner boarding with us that belonged to the people my friend leased her barn from. He was absolutely MASSIVE. Based on where the top of my head hit his shoulder (yes, he was THAT tall), I bet my friend that he was at least 17.3hh, possibly even 18hh. We text his owners and I was right: 17.3 (and a half) hands.

My point is, it is entirely possible to know approximately how tall a horse is without measuring it.

A 17.3hh ARAB?! And the part about the "big knackers" is just in poor taste. I also love how they keep referring to this oddly gargantuan arab stud as "it."

Western saddle w/black stand, Asking $600.00 cash or best offer Need gone
I do not have the girth

This ad has been on my local Craig's list for at least 5 months, if you need it gone, tell me more about the saddle and maybe post a picture of it? They have not dropped the price or changed anything about the ad at all. Sorry hunny but you ain't selling your saddle and stand that way!
