The Giraffe has wedge-shaped hoofs to carry their heavy weight (1200 to 4000 pounds). The front of the hoof is five or six inches high and the fetlock is very low in the back.
That all depends on the breed and the individual horse. A Clydesdale's or Percheron's hoof, for example, may measure about the size of a dinner plate, which is at least 10 inches in diameter. By comparison, the hoof of a Thoroughbred or Quarter horse may only be around 4 to 5 inches in diameter; a pony's hoof a bit smaller, again, depending on the breed.
about the size of a dinner plate
No, as giraffes are beautiful hooved creatures, and they belong to an animal group that had a split in the hoof - but no, a giraffe doesn't have toes.
How big a horse's hoof is varies depending on the size of the horse. Some horses have a hoof that is just 4 inches across. Some horses have a hoof 8 inches or more across.

Mature cows can have hooves that are 8 inches long by 6 to 7 inches wide. Size of the hoof really depends on the size of the bovine. Typically the larger the animal the bigger the hoof.

A well timed, well aimed, swift kick (with either front or rear hoof) will stop most predators in their tracks.
Llamas have a foot, not a hoof. They have 2 toes with soft pads on the bottom and a toenail covering the front of each which must be trimmed occasionally. An average llama footprint is about 5 inches long, 3 inches wide.
80 inches tall from the hoof to the top of the wither.
One hand is four inches and you measure from the horse's hoof to its withers (highest point on his/her body)
It depends on the breed and hoof wall stimulation and health of the hoof really. But in general, 1/4-1/2 a inch a month. Drafts tend to grow hoof wall a lot faster. I work on a draft cross mare's hooves and she grows about an inch of hoof wall in four weeks. For Howrse Archimedes question: 1/4 - 1/2 inch. :)

A good whitetail ranges from 36-42 inches from hoof to shoulder.
When measuring a horse, the unit we use is called a 'hand'. I forget exactly how many inches it is, but it comes from the distance between the tip of the thumb and little finger of an open adult palm. To measure, you go from the ground at the front hoof (either side) up to the withers (shoulders). I think 16h is about 64 inches.
in Hands 1 hand = 4 inches from hoof to withers (at base of neck where mane stops)
Just above their hoof mabey five inches up... about 3 feet
Bacterial infection of the hoof, which primarily occurs in the frog of the hoof, not the actual hoof.
