I saw an ad the other day for a horse that, when describing how tall the horse was said he was 15.4 hands. I seriously considered emailing them and asking where they learned about horses...some people!

RTR, that is my BIGGEST pet peeve relating to horses! I can't stand it when people advertise them as "14.5 hh" and such... UGH. *facepalm*

People Of Wal-Mart *Salutes* I LOVE that site.

When you lose a friend, even if that friend is an Animal, you lose a part of yourself for a while... And when you lose a friend like I had in Garnet, you die inside for a while. She was the best friend I have ever had.

RTR people are saying " "14.5 hh" and such... " because it's the metric system. Bria's seller, told me the difference in our phone conversation. People from Europe say 14.5 and Americans say 14 hh and 2 inches...it all means the same thing 14 and a half hands high. They say to-MAH-to you say to-MAY-to. Yes it's frustrating because I was confused myself, getting mixed up and meaning one thing but saying another...I blame it on my military years for that. Lol

In imperial, a hand is 4 inches, hence the 14, 14.1, 14.2, 14.3, 15hh. In metric, a hand is 10 centimeters. Hence the 14.1, 14.2, 14.3, 14.3, 14.4, 14.5 etc. Some countries in Europe especially don't even use hands much anymore, they use centimeters. So if a horse measures 14.3hh horse in an imperial country, they measure 14.75hh in a metric country (bear in mind that lots of people do still use inches to measure hands in these countries too, but more people will understand what that means), and in Germany for example, they would measure as 147.5 cm.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I think most CraigsList ads in the US that say 14.5hh are not from people who know how to use the metric system

13 yr old papered mini stud pony

I didn't know saddles were supposed to be twice the size of the horse.

Life's dirt, dig it.
