A new unit of measurement, the average height of a hand raised horizontally.
Now when you say something is "yay high" , it's absolute.
"The pony's about 1.4 yays high."
Average length of elbow to wrist. [Jinbish, Dec 05 2009]
Unit of height (length), typically used to measure horses * pony's height..

||I thought that the arm raised would be related to a vote of 'yes' - perhaps expressed as a percentage or proportionality.

||The version of the Bible which is in the metric
system seems to define a cubit as half a metre.
