Just Deb's 8" per 1000#.  As you get out to extremes it would have to alter a 
little bit, I think, just because as you go closer to zero it just 
intuitively doesn't work right.  But it is pretty good within riding horse 
weight ranges.  As for correlating it to build--that's just common sense.  A 
lot of bone on a slight body doesn't fit, nor do toothpicks on a tank.

I apologize, too, for not being able to do math in my head very well early in 
the morning--I goofed on figuring the adequate for an 880# horse in my 
earlier post, as I was just subtracting segments from 8".  What you do is 
take the percentage of 1000 and multiply it by 8--in other words, .880 x 8, 
which actually gives you 7.04 for your mare.  So she had plenty of bone for 
her weight, in reality--not even marginal!
