Ok. So Aires is now 4.5-years-old. Haven't officially measured him, but he's grown A LOT recently and is pushing 16.3hh. His head, however, is still ridiculously huge. Not wide (he takes a 5.5" bit), just looooooong. Had to drop his English headstall two holes to fit him (it was set at 52" from bit to bit and is now probably close to 54-55").
Has anyone with a draft or draft cross had one with a ridiculously large, disproportionate head that grew into it? I just feel like he's going to be this big-headed monstrosity forever.
(FWIW, my estimation that he is 16.3hh comes from the fact that I am 5'7" [67"] and was wearing boots with a 1" heel when I was at the barn on Thursday. I converted 16.3hh to inches and got 65.2". Using a tape measure, I compared where the 65.2" mark was in relation to where Aires' withers and they were just about the same).
