Do you recognize this horse? »
wow, that’s one tall horse!
Aww…that horsie looks sad….he or she is so tall!
OK is the horse 19.3-1/2 hands or 6′7-1/2″?
There are 4″ to a hand so if he 6’7.5″ he would be 1/4 inch shy of 26 hands.
26 x 4 = 104. 6 feet 7.5 inches is about right. I don’t know how some people do math but thats what it adds up to me. He is a beauty of a horse. I agree he looks sad. He is surrounded by people poking at him and standing in a very small space on hard ground. I would be sad in that situation also.
errr… he’s not the tallest horse in the world anymore… there’s a shire in australia standing 20.1 hands. I think his name is ‘Noddy”
