Tom came out to the barn today and we wanted to measure the horses.
We got one of those sewing tape measures (the soft kind) and measured them.
All of them came out perfectly, but Montana. (figures cause he is the one that I really wanted to know the height.)
I'll give you all the details and maybe someone can help me :)
Gem measured 63". I divided that by 4 and got 15.75. That would equal 15.3hh, correct?
Vega measured 62". I divided that by 4 and got 15.5. That would equal 15.2hh, correct?
Montana measured 61.5". I divided that by 4 and got 15.375. What the heck does that come out to?
I used this site OnlineConversion.com - Horse Height Conversion when I got home and it rounded 61.5" up to 62" so he came out at 15.2hh. Would he really be 15.1 1/2hh?
When I was looking at all of them, Montana definitely looked like he was the smallest, though they weren't all standing together, so I was just eye balling it, but when I'm mounting it just seems so much easier to get on him. Maybe he has shorter legs but a bigger barrel and Vega has longer legs and a shorter barrel?? I have no idea.
