I have an almost 10 month old colt who is 14.3hh at the wither and 15hh in the butt. Does this seem average or above average for those of you that have had a lot of foals. He seems big to me but don't have another baby around to compare to. Thanks.
I consider that a big baby. I have one now who was 15h at that age and 912lbs. Now he's 16.1 1/2 at 1yr7mths and 1150lbs. I think he is going to end up in the 17.1h range.
My current other baby is 15.0 1/2h at the 1yr7mths and she is expected to end up a nice comfy 16.1 or so.

Mine was around that height at that age. She was a BIG baby. As a 4 month old she was much taller than the 6 month old colts in her pasture.
She is 5 now, and sticks at 16.2 1/2 barefoot.
