Wendolyn WF (aka Lynnie) will be in for a trim in about 2 weeks, so I'll get more formal shots and a definite measure on concrete then. These are from a very informal stroll through the mare pasture last night...
The black mare in the photo on the left is 15.3 on her tippy toes. The chestnut is 16.3 and solidly built. Lynnie was 12 months on April 24th.
Absolutely fab! I took our yearling filly out for her first show a couple of weeks ago - FIRST show, FIRST trailer ride, she was an absolute gem and we even came home with a Supreme and a few champion and reserve ribbons
Since I saw this thread, it reminded me that I still needed to get shots of "our" girl before it got too far away from April (when she actually turned 1 y/o). So this evening we got these shots of her. She's a purebred Arabian and I expect her to mature around 14.2 hands or so, hoping for taller, but hey, we'll see!
Not sure if this will work. Here is my yearling thoroughbred filly by Rock Hard Ten, out of a Grand Slam mare. She is 14 months in the pic and currently measures about 15.1. She is my first homebred and I love her so much.
JB - love, love your boy.
Have a Gatsby filly out of a Tb mare (very well bred for sport horse) - 11 1/2 mos: c. 15h in front, about 2" higher behind - so no photos right now, plus am not near her. Gatsby did a great job of adding height, bone and length of neck to my mare; also suspension. (Her previous foals finished 16h; this one will finish taller.) Very, very smart. Plus very athletic. She has very good, balanced, big gaits. At about 2 1/2-3 mos., she was found, very calm, on the other side of a 4' fence from her dam - no scrapes, scratches, nor hairs left on the fence -so she had to clear it cleanly).
Good luck with your boy!!! Are planning on keeping him and showing yourself?
Thanks cmssera! He's a keeper, always was planned that way Hunters I hope
Gatsby is VERY good at adding bone in all the right places for the lighter mares Gizmo is just a bit behind growth of your filly it sounds like - at 12 months he was 14.3 1/4 in front and 15 3/4 behind. he's only marginally taller each end now. All height tests, from birth height to cannon length put him finishing around 16.3 or so, which is great. I'd love to see your filly

When she was a suckling, her photo is on Gatsby's website as unnamed (name became Gaea - they have not updated the website). Hoping to get to see her in the next few weeks, but right now, tied down at work.
A friend of mine just came out and took pictures of my colt today. He was such a good boy. He let me clip his legs, bridle path, and whiskers without flinching. I couldn't be more proud of my little boy.
He is not going to be very big, maybe 16 or 16.1, but is built like a tank and has loads of power.
Anyway, here he is:
He is by Lingh out of on Idocus x Riverman (Redfort) mare.
Here's the link.. it starts at one day old and finishes a few days ago.. not quite a year old. Last time I sticked him he was 14.2 at the wither and 15.1 at the butt! I think he's shot up again, but I'm waiting til Friday to check him again. I'm hoping (and expecting) he'll finish up between 16.2 and 17.
