    I've got a patient who told me of a registered pure
    Arabian gelding she sold to an elderly gentleman. The
    horse grew too big for the man and he may want to sell
    "How big is he now?" asks I.
    "17 hands" says she!
    17 HANDS!!!!!  Is that possible?
    "How much do you think he'll want for him?" I querred.
    "I'd imagine around $300 or $400."
    I checked her chart to see what meds she was on!
    I'll let you know how this comes out.  I'm just
    curious if any of you have ever seen or known of a 17
    hand pure Arab.
