How tall is your horse & how tall are you???

OK... So I'm cruizin' the internet and reading about all these 16 -17+hh horses and I get to thinkin...How tall is Dumas...check me on my math here...

4inches = 1 hand
Dumas is 5' at the withers.
5' = 60"
4 into 60 = 15
Dumas is 15 hh right?

Seems like he is much bigger than that...Or maybe its cause I'm 5'2" :roll: So I can barely see over him... :

So how tall are you and your horse

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

lemme ask this way.... IS 15hh a bigish horse? I mean it seems like a long way down..as a matter of fact it is and my rear can vouch for that!

My mare's about 15hh, and I'm 5'5" on a good day (haha)

I grew up around large horses though, so I don't even find 17hh big...
