    My filly measured 13.3h as a yearling, and she should get to about 15.3h. She's half-Lusitano, and only seems to grow during the winter, and very slowly. She's 2 now, and 14.2h in front and almost 15h behind.

    My gelding was 14.3h at 2, and he should finish at 15.3h. He's 15.2h and not-quite 4 now. His full sister supposedly grew a whole inch between 4 and 5, so I guess it's possible. He's Arab.

    Just to give you the other side of the picture. Though I'm taller than you and almost the same weight, and I feel totally fine on my shorter but wider horses.

    Yeah, my shorter guy is supposed to be around 15.3, and he's currently at 13.2 (14.1 behind!) and he doesn't officially turn 1 until next month.

    But I'm 5'2" and I LOVE me a good 15.2h horse!

    We have an March 2009 filly at the barn by Escudo II that the owner thinks is at least 15h at the withers. She was quite petite when born but has shot up and is out of a very tall mare. I wouldn't be surprised if she ends up over 17H.

    Just yesterday my neighbour and I were in the barn prepping for feeding time. We were yabbing away of this and that and as C-Riot walked by into his stall (he's by Cardento o/o a Rio Grande x Golden Miller mare) as one man we interrupted our own conversation and stared at each other. Jeannie laughed and blurted, "I just walked past him seconds ago outside, and he wasn't that big!?"

    I haven't measured him but expect around 17hh+ at maturity and he seems to have had a sudden growth spurt that far outdoes April and Russia, his yearling friends who are only days younger than he.

    Default Guesses?

    I have a yearling (as of this week) filly that is almost 14.1h at the wither about about 14.1 1/2 at the rear (maybe 14.2). Dam was 15.2-3h, and her sire is 16.1h, but known for throwing larger than himself - has 17h offspring on the ground out of 16.2h mares. Anyone have a guess as to how tall she'll be? I'm not particularly tall or fond of very tall horses, so I'm hoping for about 16h. Maybe 16.1h.
    Thoughts?

    I am 5'8" barefoot, and am wearing tennis shoes with a rather thick sole. His butt is now even with/slightly above my eyes. He is by Escudo II, out of a mare by Nicholas x Dederick.
    Here is a picture we took yesterday of the Escudo II boy:

    My Sagnol colt is 15HH at 10 months. I expect he will mature a good 17HH.

    yes, as a general rule of thumb I would be looking for a yearling that is at least 14.2H by his/her 12th month. My 2 fillies were both 14.2H on their 1st birthday. Now they are 2....they currently look like they will be 16.3 and 16.2H.Of course the one that will be 16.2 was the "big un" at birth and the one that is passing her was the "little one"!

    She IS going to be big!!!

    I just measured Joy's Westporte born 2/16/09, and Sophie is 15.2 1/2hh. She's just about the size of Joy!

    My yearling Timbermill Kitlee measured a bit over 14.0h at 13 months. She should finish around 16.1h.

    Sire: Worldly 16.3h
    Dam: Timbermill Kitlee 15.2h

    This is Kitlee at 13 months - she's a bit bum high.

    You people are scaring me!!!! my Escapade filly was a solid 15.3 1/2 h at 15 months of age. On her 3rd Bday she is 16.3 1/4. I was looking for 16.1 dam was 16.0 1/2 and sire is 16.2! Please don't say she will be 17.3!!!!! I am holding my breath that she never even makes 17!

    Oh, I would agree with most everyone else. If you want 16.2 or more I would like to see a yearling that is at least 14.2. depending on the breed some grow differently as well. TBs tend to grow more up front while a warmblood can grow til he's 6! of course each horse is different and diet and access to turnout and basic care will play it's role as well with the genetics. I personally do not feed to try and "grow" them. I just use a good feed, plenty of clean hay, and lots of time outside and maintain a great body condition. I had a very malnourished 11 month old filly I rescued a couple of years ago, she was about a 2 on the condition scale and wormy. She was barely 14h when I got her and when I sold her as a 3yr old she was 16.2 1/2, but she did have the genetics to back that up as well. Sire was 17.1 Old and dam was 16.1 TB.

    I have one monster yearling....he looks three. He is almost 15.3 and weighs 900 pounds. He is out with my 2 year olds...and is the tallest in the pasture. I cant even keep him with my "normal" yearlings because he is so much bigger he beats on them.

    His parents are BOTH 16.1 and he is a full TB.

    Maybe just an early grower? I hope!
