I took Aires' lead rope and measured from his fetlock to his shoulder. Keeping your hands in place on the lead rope, stretch the lead rope from the shoulder up. Wherever your other hand ends up above their withers is what their adult height will be. I posted a question about it back toward when I first joined and someone gave me a great site, but I am too lazy to go back and look up the tread now. Lol
There's another way to do it where you measure the circumference of their canon bone and that will give you their adult height (ex: 15.5" circumference equals 15.2hh adult height), but that didn't work on Aires. His canon measured 15" and he's already 15.2hh as a two-year-old.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
