I "weighed" Smokey and Bugsy today in preparation for worming. My chum, Judy, from whom I bought Bugsy, gave me a formula that is generally more accurate than a weigh tape. You measure the length of the pony from point of shoulder to point of buttock; then measure the girth just behind the elbow, both in cm; multiply girth x girth x length and divide by 11877 to give bodyweight in kg.

Smokey was 546kg and Bugsy 208kg, same as he was when he came here - not bad for the end of summer.

Unfortunately weighing them doesn't make them thinner. If that worked, I'd weigh myself every day :-)
