    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*

    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.

    Thanks, Chiilaa for further clarifying that for me.

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