I have to tell you, that just got me laughing. Sorry......just being honest here."Yes, I have known that as a measuring point for a long time."
I would like to know where this was ever used as a measuring point before this.. anyone?
I so agree with this!Even if the training was available for 'certified measurers', what about the rest of the membership? We are putting our reputations on the line, and we open ourselves up for lawsuits every time we indicate a measurment on our horses. We are legally responsible when we put the heights on registrations, transfers, and bills of sale. If we can't find the right place to measure, we are liable if it is done wrong. This puts the entire membership in jeopardy, it involves much more than just the showring.
I agree.I personally have no problem with measuring from the base of the withers.
It seems alot easier to find than the last hair of the mane to me.
