We've all seen the 15.5hh horses.. I've have gone and found a 15.7hh mare! Not only that, but impressively at 7 years of age she is still a filly :) Poor things looks miserable.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

That second foal (in the last two pics) looks like s/he is going to be a good-looking horse when s/he grows up...if s/he gets fed properly. :-/

Something about this horse's confo bugs me. Is anyone else seeing it? His back almost looks...roached? I've never liked this ranch's horses anyway, but yeah...

Start Your Own Kuhn Ranch with AQHA WC line

This stud's back is a bit scary. Can't decide if he's butt high or sway backed...

AQHA NICE STUD



This ad kind of confuses me. They say "fine boned" like it's a good thing. And then he can be bred to a "stocky ghost"? What the heck is that?! And "he could possibly heal perfectly with time"? Nice selling point for your OTTB stud with a fractured cannon bone. "Plenty of bilingual and personality"? Didn't know horses could be bilingual...

Bay TB stud amazing blood lines
In this last ad for the "Bay TB Stud", does he just have scarring of some sort on his bum and hip, inner posterior leg and possibly shoulder area, or could he have some sort of skin illness (mange-like, as horses cannot get mange, correct?) I am viewing on my phone so it's always a bit difficult to see detail...

Registered TW Mare, negotiable

She's a "dream to ride"? Doesn't appear so!

2 DONKEYS

Awwe, $50? If I wasn't in the process of moving I would take them in a heartbeat! I could use a good burro in my herd. Still, $50 is like begging for a kill buyer...

In metric using countries, this is a lot more common and a lot more forgivable IMO. In the USA, a hand is 4 inches. So the 15.1 means it is 1 inch over 15 hands. You can only go up to .3, the next is 4 inches, which is the next hand measurement.

Using metric, a hand is 10 centimeters. So this mare is 7 centimeters past a hand, with 3 more to go. A lot of European countries seem also to be moving away from using hands at all, and are listing the horses as 157 cms etc.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Thank you! I need to understand more about rain rot. I've lived in AZ nearly all of my life, at least the parts of my life during which I've been involved with horses! Being so dry here, I don't assume we see it a lot, otherwise I think I would have (?).....I plan to read up on it. Thank you again. :0)
