    Default How to find size of horses in pedigree??

    I'm looking to find the sizes of Thoroughbreds in my foal's background. Is it possible? The foal has Spectacular Bid on dam's side and Silver Deputy on the stallion's side.

    My mare is only 15.2 and the stallion is only 16.h, but the foal is huge. Maybe someone can comment on this. Maiden mare too.

    She may just be a big baby, but I am curious as to the height of her background.

    Her dam and sire are Pericles out of Plaza Time (you've never heard of them) BTW the foal is gorgeous, not just by my standards but by my vet and everyone who sees her. Very lucky on a first breeding.

    The only one I can help you with is Silver Deputy. He was 16.0.

    As I'm sure you know, the fact that your foal is huge now may not translate to a huge mare later on. Just as a point of interest in last year's crop, we bred a 16.0 mare to a stallion known for producing size and got a small filly (sixth foal). Friends bred a 16.0 mare to a stallion known for producing small and got a huge filly (first foal). Sometimes you just never know.
