Fawnling Height Comparison Chart

To scale


Requested by a couple of members, and hopefully a helpful resource when visualizing your characters and explaining the height difference by region. All heights here are average heights for each herd, not the maximum or minimum heights. The size of a small modern horse is also compared to provide a little perspective on how small fawnlings truly are. For each region, there is about a .2hh variance on either side of the general guidelines.

How do hands work?
For anyone who isn't aware, hands is the form of measurement most commonly used to measure modern day horses. One hand is four inches, with the measurements being broken up into increments of four as a result. People often make the mistake of thinking hands use a ten unit system like decimals, but this is not the case. Heights would go up like 9hh (also equivalent to 8.4hh), 9.1hh, 9.2hh, 9.3hh, 10hh. For example, a Fawnling that is 10.1hh is 41 inches tall, or 104.1cm. But we don't much like maths here, so to make it easy for everyone there are plenty of conversion sites around the internet to do the job for us: our personal favourite is: this one.

Oakfern - 8hh
Between 7hh and 9hh
Due to the nature of their cave dwellings and poorer nutrition, these fawnlings do not grow to be very tall at all. Their small size aids them in travelling quickly through narrow tunnels that other fawnlings would not be able to enter.

Windborne - 9.2hh
Between 8hh and 11hh
These hardy fawnlings live in a harsher environment to their smaller southern brethren, with dense scrub catching the antlers of larger fawnlings with a distinct advantage for the smaller individual.

Glenmore - 10.2hh
Between 9hh and 12hh
Living in one of the lushest territories in the western kingdoms, these fawnlings still have to contend with dense forests and underbrush, where overhanging branches might easily catch the antlers of taller fawnlings.

Silverthorne - 12hh
Between 10hh and 13hh
Living partially on grassland, partially in woodland these fawnlings have both the grazing and space to grow larger than your average fawnling.

Blackwood - 13hh
Between 11hh and 14hh
Living in wide spaced forests of almost exclusively blackpines, these towering trees allow the Blackwoods to grow very tall.

are does naturally smaller in size? I am trying to put together a character for one of the fawns in the most recent auction I am still debating which herd to put her in but I would like her to be on the tall side for a doe in whichever herd she ends up in, are there any specific guidelines for average doe height in relation to stag height?

Check out our faq and info journals: does are always smaller than stags of their own herd.

thanks again :) I think I am going to make her 9.2 or 9.3hh, very tall for a doe in the Glenmore tribe :)
