Long Yearling Height vs. Maturity Height? *YEARLING EVALUATION ADDED POST #8*
Is there a general rule of thumb somewhere that i'm not aware of to estimate maturity height?
I'm looking at a long yearling (two in late May) that my fiance's parents have who I helped foal when the mare was really struggling.. I've always wanted the mare, but i'm more interested in a show horse than a broodmare so i'm opting to buy the filly instead...
Anyway, long story short - the filly is an honest 16HH at the wither right now... what height would be reasonable to expect when she's fully grown?
Her dam, Sew Neva Ask (by Yoonevano (x Seattle Slew), out of a Cielo's Gift mare) is about 17.1 to be conservative... her sire, Brunswick (by Private Account (by Damascas) out of a Mr. Prospector mare) is about 16.2.
The full brother to this filly is roughly 16.3 -/+ as a late two year old.
