    Hi,

    I just found this forum and I think I'll be coming here often I love animals and regularly sculpt them plus I've got pets and am always tempted to get another.

    I do not have a horse. I'd like to have one some day but I'm not ready for one now.

    I've got a problem.

    I'm a sculptor and my next idea involves a horse. In this case it's going to be a specific scale, which means I need measurements of a real horse in order to scale it down correctly to the miniature version I'll be making. I've searched the internet to find measurements of a horse, Any horse at this point. I quickly learned horses are measured by hand. An interesting fact. But it does me no good :)

    So I've got two questions:

    What breed is this?

    and does anyone know the measurements in inches of that type of horse?

    I'd appreciate any kind of help you are willing to give.

    Best Wishes,
    Aleah

    I followed the link back and found some info on the horse. He is a Tennessee Walking Horse. He is also registered as a Spotted Saddle Horse. He is 15.3 hands. A hand equals 4 inches. So he is 63 inches at the withers. This is where the neck meets the back.
    Here is a link explaining where a horse's withers are.

    I found a link last night that said a hand is four inches but I still couldn't figure out what breed the horse is. So you helped me out a lot. Thank you!!
