How Do I Measure My Zebu?

Print Friendly

Miniature are measured across their hip, at the highest point. NOT BEHIND THE HUMP.  The idea being that a 38 inch tall Miniature Zebu should be able to just barely walk under a 38 inch high bar.  Measuring at the hip has proven to be more accurate than shoulder or wither measurements.

A measuring stick can be purchased, or built from PVC pipe.  This measuring stick should have an "arm" that can be gently lowered over the back of a Mini, while the foot of the stick is set firmly on level ground. The frame chart shown below was  by continuing the AHA chart downward.
