When I first got Abby she was 16hh. Now I am 16hh at the top of my head, 5'4". Here is a picture from last fall. Sorry it is the best I have. I hate photos of myself. The last person that came to look at Abby doubted that she was only 16hh and I was kept saying, no, she is 16.1 at the most. WRONG!
Today I pulled her out and I was thinking, gee, I used to be able to see over her butt. I can't see over her butt anymore. I can't see over her at all anymore. In fact grooming her back was really difficult. Although on the plus side I can do a damn good job on her belly! Now that leads me to believe that one of two things happened. Either I hit the ground harder than I thought last fall and shrunk OR Abby grew! If you look at the Wordless Wednesday post, you will notice that her halter is a little on the tight side. I have not adjusted it since last fall.
Recently there has been discussion about if mares are affectionate. . .
When you get a hug from a big lug like this. . ya know it!
I am estimating that she is between 16.2hh and 17hh
