Wordless Wednesday - Wow! You Are Huge!!
My youngest granddaughter came up to the farm to see the horses. One of the horses was a HUGE Percheron. Now Percheron's are draft horses that are better known for being used on farms to help by pulling plows. This Percheron was about 18 hands high. (Horses are measured in hands. A hand equals 4". Therefore, this means that this horse is 72" tall, or 6' tall. Now this does not include the head and neck. The measurement goes from the ground up to the area between the neck and the back, or the withers.) You can imagine what this toddler is thinking at this point. But, obviously, he is not scaring her. How would you react if you came across a horse this big?
