Useful Information:

*hh stands for hands high.br/> Horses are traditionally measured in hands and inches from the ground up to the base of the horse's neck.

A hand is 4 inches so a 14. 2 hands high pony means 14 hands and 2 inches. Therefore 58 inches from the ground to his shoulder/base of neck.

The Colour 'Grey' 
In the horse world every horse that looks white is called grey. Horses that are grey can be born any colour, however, bay, chestnut, or black base colours are most common. As the horse matures, white hairs begin to replace the base or birth colour - which explains why our snowy white Treacle probably got her name!
