Currently he fits me like a glove. hahaha but yes... it is comical to see people our height on ponies...
Darn you muscular people! I've spent two years at the gym, with up to 3 trips a week, every weight machine. I now weigh...wait for it...3lb more. I can't gain muscle, therefore weight...I'm the human equivalent of a thouroughbred!..Maybe that's why I love ponies? Their..uh...'Volumtuous hindquarters?

Oh and so you can get a good mental image of what an issue this is: I'm 5'6" and weigh 118 on a heavy day.

Im a weed, im 13 and am 5'8. We can buy school pants at the beginning of the year, and by the end of the school year, they are too short. I love being tall, although paint are an issue!
