How tall is your horse?

Hey,

I was wondering how tall your horse is and how much it weighs?

Mishab (Chinga) - Is 16.1 I was told he was 15.2 but I measured him today and found out he was 16.1. I knew he was way to big to be 15.2, he also has a weight of 595kg we have been told by the vet that he needs another 50kgs.

So how big are your horses?

My boy is 16hh, or if you want to get real picky 15.3 3/4, lol. He was advertised as 15.1hh, but I don't think it was dishonesty on his old owners' part, he's fine-boned so therefore looks smaller. Although I've had several people comment on how big he is. He was 6 when I got him, and he just turned 8, is it possible he could have grown a smidgen?

Gidji is 15.3. Not too sure about his weight, I think mum said he was 593kg when we she last weighed him. He looks fat.
My sister's old pony, Benny Boy is 13.2 Don't know his weight.
My mum's quarter horse, is 16.2 He's an OTTB. Don't know his weight, and I don't really ride him. He's a bit too misbehaved for me.

I have a biiig range...

Unmeasured but tiny right now (2 week old mini filly) is Pebbles
Under 28" are Shakespeare (mini colt) and Destiny (mini yearling)
28.5" is the smallest full grown (although Destiny will possibly be smaller), Tucker.
The rest of the minis range up to the tallest at 38" (barely a mini!), Cruiser.

Then the other horses...
Maverick my haffy is smallest, but he's just a yearling. Not sure his height, need to measure. In the 12h range though I think.
Harley my Fell is next at 13 even.
My zorse is roughly 13.2 IIRC (he's in Tx, going by memory of what my friend guestimated him to be as he's currently living with her)
Calista my Arab Pony is 13.3
Summer my haffy/welsh cob is 14
Braveheart my Arab is 15.3 (not kidding! I wish he were much shorter, I'm short and prefer ponies!)
Cheyenne my TB is 16
And Renaissance, another TB, is 16.1
