    Hi Dolce

    Thanks for asking this, I have been completely bamboozled as to working out how high they are in CM's. A hand is 4 inches. So 10 cm is 1 hand. therefore 14.2hh would be 145cm. Is that right? :confused:

    I know that 1 inch = 2.54cm.
    so 1 hand = 10.16 cm
    then there are 4 inches in 1 hand (that I did not know thanks Kerry).
    so I guess 14.2 hh = 147 cm.
    Voila :)
